Published Jun 23, 2016Artists and musicians from all genres have reacted to the tragic Orlando nightclub shootings that took place earlier this month. Today, Brooklyn-based composer Tyondai Braxton has shared a pay-what-you-want EP, from which all proceeds will support a gun safety support fund.
Titled Oranged Out, the EP is a collection of five tracks from or near the time Braxton was working on his last LP, HIVE1. Proceeds from EP downloads will go to the Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, a nonprofit organization which advocates for gun control and against gun violence.
"Everytown are raising awareness about gun violence and advocating for sensible gun safety measures in the wake of the Orlando shooting, Newtown / Sandy Hook, and Aurora — as well as the daily gun deaths that we've grown so accustomed to that it's not even news worthy anymore," Braxton explained on his Bandcamp page. "Special thanks to Nonesuch Records and Beat Ink Japan for supporting this idea."
