“This experience is the icing on the cake”

This summer Finding Rhythms was proud to complete its first project at HMP Grendon. A fortnight later we received this incredible letter from one of the participants on the project. The words speak for themselves! Congratulations to Jess Greenfield, leading a Finding Rhythms course for the first time, and her team: Aaron May, Benjamin Henry Edwards, Ruth Goller and Sam Lewis

“I’m just writing to say a massive thank you for putting Finding Rhythms on. It’s been an incredible experience.

Other than my racing championships which were many years ago, its been the most fantastic experience of my life.

To watch people change in front of your eyes, find talent they did not know they had, it’s hard to put into words.

Ben actually wrote most of the songs, also Lou was talented, Mark wrote and performed his own song “Stolen” and everyone helped with my song “Rev it Up”.

Also the pro musicians were so lovely and supportive and completely non-judgemental. Jessy was a fantastic singer, Ruth, bass player, Sam, guitar, was super and Ben, harmonica. We all worked so hard as a team, I’d be much obliged if you would not mind sending an email to their manager. I speak for all seven of us..

There were tears at the end, I started everyone off. Again I can’t really put into words how special this was, I’m so excited over the album..

There’s some deep stuff and “Love Song” could be a big hit.

Funny really like for a person that was not sure of coming to Grendon not only has it been beneficial in helping me see the severity of doing anything wrong, this experience is the icing on the cake.

It’s something I never thought I’d achieve, I suppose it’s a dream now made into reality.

Many, many thanks.

Johnny”
