The Song Project

The Song Project

Jazz trumpeter Mark Rapp and guitarist/vocalist Derek Lee Bronston, known as The Song Project, released their debut CD as a complete album experience in the form of an iPhone/iPad App called an Applum via Apple’s App Store. These two musicians have defined their careers by innovating on their instruments, in composing and as players. It’s no surprise then, that they would choose uncharted territory to release their debut recording.

Advancing the way you experience music

Art of the Song ApplumDownload the FREE ApplumImagine the music that changed your life. Was it Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue” or Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon”? Remember the feeling you had when you heard the music, held the album cover and read the liner notes? The Applum (AP), is a digital album that harkens back to the vinyl era but with all the accolades and elegance of the digital age. Feel the elegance of the iPad, see stunning images, explore the artists’ notes, take in the music and loose yourself in sights, sounds and feelings. This is a complete presentation – a work of art.
