Caged Arts are a band made of members with varying disabilities and are the first group to be formed via TIME. Comprising different ages, abilities and backgrounds, these individuals have defied limitations and demonstrated overwhelming creative ability.
The group are regulars on the live circuit, playing numerous venues and festivals across the Essex area. This includes appearances on mainstream music nights, which further promotes inclusion and removes the tag of disability that is sometimes applied.
2017 will see Caged Arts venture into London and further afield, whilst preparing for the release of their debut single – ‘Screaming Roar Inside’.
The Papworth Band
Over the Summer of 2016 TIME assisted attendees of the Basildon Papworth Centre to compose their own songs. The organisation then kindly funded 2 hours in Harbour Music Studios, where the guys and girls were able to experience a full recording process. All music and lyrics are composed and performed by disabled musicians.
All money raised from sales is split between funding The Basildon Papworth Centre and contributing towards new instruments for TIME clients.
The track is available from iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all other mainstream digital outlets:
