‘It Ain’t Necessarily So’ A song by Katie Robinson aka Katie Kaboose

Katie volunteers with Joy Of Sound helping us produce community music with participants of all ages and abilities. Katie arrived at JOS in 2016 and we soon realised that she is a naturally gifted singer songwriter, so we asked if she would like to write a song about her experience, and to share how it feels to volunteer at JOS. Katie’s song ‘It Ain’t Necessarily So’ is the result. It emerged as a collaboration with JOS volunteers and participants at our Portobello Road workshops.

A video that documents the process working with filmmaker Julian Langham, sponsored by City Living Local Life RBKC was viewed by over 6000 people, and many suggested the song ought to be released as a single showcasing Katie’s brilliance as a performer songwriter and promoting JOS’s work.

So that’s what we’ve done.

Volunteers Week

The work that Joy of Sound does is only made possible by volunteers. Over JOS’s 17 years there have been many hundreds of people from all walks of life, from many different countries and backgrounds who have found value in giving their time, expertise and effort into helping JOS achieve success. One of our great strengths is the ongoing relationship we have with volunteers, especially those from abroad. Such links have enabled us to visit many countries running workshops and giving presentations on our approach. New volunteers of all abilities are always welcome.
