Grant Lee Phillips, John Doe, Sam Phillips & Eric Gorfain: Stay Safe


885FM TogetherTunes 040520 Slider Framed




World renowned radio tastemaker Nic Harcourt launches #TogetherTunes on his Los Angeles morning radio show at 88.5 FM and 885fm.org.

#TogetherTunes was Inspired by musician Grant Lee Phillips (Best known for his role as the Town Troubadour in Gilmore Girls and his band Grant Lee Buffalo) who along with friends John Doe, Sam Phillips, and Eric Gorfain created a remedy for cabin fever by collaborating and penning an original song “Stay Safe”. They each recorded their individual parts in video on their phones and then pulled all the elements together into a finished video and song.

Nic is challenging the musical community in Los Angeles and around the world to channel their own energies into new collaborations that resonate, reflect, and inspire.

The directions are simple:

MUSICIANS: Reach out to one or more friends, collaborate to come up with an original idea (a shared chorus or refrain), assign each individual to write their own verse accordingly. Film yourself performing your part; then pick one of you to comp it together into a video of the full song that we can share.

Send the finished video to us at [email protected]. We will share the best submissions on our YouTube channel and pick the standouts to play on the Morning Show.

We are all experiencing this roller coaster together, let's all inspire and be inspired by music.
