‘It Ain’t Necessarily So’
A song by Katie Robinson aka Katie Kaboose
Katie volunteers with Joy Of Sound (JOS), a charity producing community music with participants of all ages and abilities. www.joyofsound.org
Katie arrived at JOS in 2016 and we soon realised that she is a naturally gifted singer songwriter, so we asked if she would like to write a song about her experience, and to share how it feels to volunteer at JOS
Katie's song ‘It Ain’t Necessarily So’ is the result. It emerged as a collaboration with JOS volunteers and participants at our Portobello Road workshops. JOS produced this video that documents the process working with filmmaker Julian Langham - vimeo.com/217145935
The film was sponsored by City Living Local Life RBKC
Over 6000 people viewed the video. Many suggested the song ought to be released as a single showcasing Katie's brilliance as a performer songwriter and promoting JOS’s work. So that’s what we’ve done.
Please tell us what you feel about the song and share the link with your friends and networks. You are also very welcome to come and join us.
