Alex Hayward of the Jacksonville Artist and Musicians Syndicate (JAMS) hopes to bring fans of all types of music together and broaden the horizons of their eardrums.
JAMS arranges performances from different genres and is working to release an album that blends these genres with the goal of broadening listeners musical tastes. Proceeds from this album will benefit the Riverside Fine Arts Center.
Hayward said that he has brought the Northeast Florida folk band Canary in the Coalmine with hip-hop artist Tough Junkie to make a song for the album. He is also working on a collaboration between rock band Antique Animals and Charlotte Mabrey of the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra.
