THE PHOENIX PROJECT
a concept album by kat green & daniel belardinelli
“The Phoenix Project” has a message and mission to give hope and release the stigma of depression. Inspired by our own personal struggles as well as the recent harrowing tragedies of the likes of Chester Bennington, Chris Cornell, Kate Spade, Anthony Bourdain to name a few which have brought to the foreground the enormous crisis of this epidemic. Make no mistake though, it is not a depressing album. This is a classical-crossover orchestral concept album that has an arc and the mission to inspire and show resilience through stories of birth, heartache, strength, transformation, and rebirth. The music is epic, powerful, dramatic, theatrical and beautiful. We are planning to present the album in a concert sometime end of August and we will be partnering with mental health organizations, the City of LA, UCLA, NYU, The One More Light Foundation among many others.
