Causes & Community


Music and the arts are our life’s work, but they don’t encompass the entirety our lives and beliefs. We are constantly reminded of our small place in the grand scheme of this world’s many issues. Our hearts and minds are focused on a wide range of causes that aid, rescue, and relieve our planet and fellow human beings.

The following are a list of some of the non-profit organizations whose work we feel deserves greater recognition:

The Community

Over the years, we have actively supported artists, chefs and fashionistas who encompass the same independent, creative, and courageous vision that we have tried to embody.
