– Brooke Eden today announced a partnership with the RIAA, "Music Matters."
Eden will appear in schools, medical centers and recording studios throughout the year. "Music Matters with RIAA" is designed to demonstrate how music can enable our authentic voice, give purpose, connect people to each other and give people strength and courage to navigate life's challenges.
"It's important to the RIAA to support artists using their voice and their music where it matters most," said Jackie Jones, RIAA VP of Artist and Industry Relations. "By creating this program, our hope is to provide a platform that allows artists to speak to policymakers directly about the importance of music and create tangible moments that show how music makes a difference in our lives."
Last year, Eden used the support of her friends and music to embrace her own LGBTQ+ community. As Eden said, "This effort is an opportunity to help others find confidence and their better selves." Lending her own life experience to those in need, Eden said she "just wants people to feel comfortable in their own skin."
Throughout "Music Matters with RIAA" Eden will share her own music, which has largely been inspired by her personal journey to self-acceptance. "I've been going through so much healing myself, learning and unlearning, how to be a better human, and I hope that comes out in the music and my writing, which is truly my therapy."
"Music Matters with RIAA" will officially launch on June 23rd when Eden will join U.S. David Cicilline, D-R.I.,Chair of the Congressional LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus.
Eden is on the Broken Bow label and released an EP in 2016. Last year, Eden released new songs "No Shade" and "Sunroof."
