JUBILEE in 130 characters
JUBILEE: Seattle “beachtown folk rock,” fighting slavery with music. “Do what you love to undo what you hate.” www.livejubilee.org

JUBILEE in 170 words
JUBILEE is a nonprofit band from Seattle whose motto is “Do what you love to undo what you hate.” They use their microphones, instruments, and all music sales to fight modern slavery. Their project Arts Aftercare brings "beauty and healing through the arts" to survivors of human trafficking locally and internationally.

Lead singer Curtis Romjue says, "Music makes our lives better. We hope our music can improve the lives of others. Nothing I have learned about the world disturbs me more than slavery and the forced prostitution of young children. This needs to stop.  We're all human, and capable of both brilliant glory and unspeakable evil. The extreme realities of human slavery illustrate the logical and inevitable out-workings of an ill-tended human heart.  Music is one of our most powerful tools in the fight to end slavery.  What else can claim the ability to raise awareness while lifting the spirit. What else helps us ruminate on life as it speaks to the heart - the true source of problems like slavery."

Formed in 2004, JUBILEE's most recent release "To See You Well" (2011) is their third album, self-described as "beachtown folk rock." Slipping happily through, between and around genres, many have remarked that the album could best be personified by a bearded man sitting by the ocean eating a healthy sandwich. The music and artwork pay tribute to the land, people, and cultures of the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii, the band’s milieu.
