Josh Pyke and Tim Levinson collaboration
Posted on 6 Feb 2014
Josh Pyke and Tim Levinson (aka Urthboy) have paired their writing skills to write a song for the non-profit organisation Life Without Barriers.
The two Albert writers from different genres came together last November with the goal of writing a song about life in foster or residential care.
Fourteen young people in Life Without Barriers’ care shared their experiences, opinions and ideas of foster and residential care with the musicians through a private Facebook group. A number of these young people then went on to meet Urthboy to share their individual stories.
The track "Someone Else's House" highlights the importance of listening to young people and understanding what is important in their lives.
The lyrics speak of not being heard, disappointment and feelings of loneliness, such as:
Someone else’s house, someone else’s rules,
Someone else’s room, someone else’s school,
He don’t fit in anywhere and knows it,
Hate it when a case worker try to sugar coat it.
The song launched today is available to download on iTunes with all proceeds going to the CREATE Foundation, to fund grants and programs that will help make a difference to the lives of young people in care."
