Offering's newest album, More Than This

Offering's newest album, More Than This

Recently I had the privilege of working with Jeanine Guidry and Offering on developing album artwork for their latest release, More Than This. Not only is the title of the album a track in and of itself, but it’s also an expression of the band’s overarching philosophy of music becoming more than just an end in and of itself. Offering uses their talent as a melodic vehicle to spur social action against the hunger and degradation of the human condition here at home in Richmond as well as abroad. You may recall that they’re the same band I accompanied to China for our work in the migrant communities there, for instance.

To express this idea, I had the thought of a record that had something more growing out of it.
