Rhonda and the Great Unknown are a local band whose lead singer, Rhonda Merrick recently set the group a challenge to write and produce 50 songs in 50 weeks.
The challenge is set to see the band deliver 50 broadcast-ready songs to celebrate the life and music of Rhonda; marking the day she turned 49 years of age and decided to Rock n’ Roll her way to 50.
The band is donating songs from the music project to a limited edition CD. All the proceeds from the album sales, titled #GotNoWorries, are to be donated to the KATFM centre, where the group spend a lot of their time. Members Jim Dawkins and James Plows rent studio space within the building as well as donating a portion of their time to group projects. Musician, Ritchie Swann is co-director of the centre and responsible for much of what the KATFM centre stands for.
The self-produced album includes tracks Got No Worries, Freedom and No One to Blame as well as other great tracks that will be added to the limited edition disc with an exclusive video release for the public to buy.
There are a few dance numbers on the album and plenty of other great tracks that won’t be released or available to buy anywhere else. The proceeds will be going to a worthy cause as the money raised will help the KATFM centre to continue the great work it does.
