Artist Brandon Ahnert Joins the First Annual Meeting of Optimists

It was a nice, cold/rainy November morning hanging out with artist Brandon Ahnert to work on “Ok, Alright,” inching us forward with our First Annual Meeting of Optimists Project. 

First Annual Meeting of Optimists is a multimedia art and music project featuring 13 new June IND tracks accompanied by song-inspired visuals from area artists.

As we did with artist Stacy Bogan, we reached out to Brandon by asking, “Can you paint the face of the person that this song is about.”

From there, we gave him a track, lyric sheet and a canvas, met up with him at his home studio, and hit record.

Connect with Brandon Ahnert on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

“Ok, Alright” is a tribute to Main Street, mom & pop, shopping small, buying local, and everyone busting their ass to make a living.

You’ll be able to hear “Ok, Alright” & more First Annual Meeting of Optimists tunes LIVE on December 21, 9 p.m. at the Knickerbocker Saloon for People’s Live presents: YEARS / JUNE IND / What About Jim.
