The Group's Purpose

Our province of BC is currently under a state of emergency due to over 140 wildfires burning.

With over 40,000 people now directly affected, it's our responsibility as a province to step up and help our neighbours in their time of need.

As a touring band, we have spent time in many of the communities impacted. They are the places we have performed at, spots of refuge and rest, and the homes of our friends.

We have chosen to support the Canadian Red Cross, who are providing immediate financial aid to those displaced by the wildfires.

About the Organizers

We're joining dozens of other western Canadian musicians in making a real impact in our local and global communities through Instruments For Change.

The Western Canadian Music Alliance (WCMA) is an organization made of the Music Industry Associations (MIAs) of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Northwest Territories and the Yukon Territory – to promote and celebrate western Canadian music.

Instruments For Change is the charitable initiative of the WCMA, encouraging and acting as a catalyst for western Canadian artists and industry to use their talents for good.

Artists who join IFC are challenged to write and film themselves performing a song, using the video as a vehicle to advocate for a cause and charity they have personal connections to.

Instruments For Change is powered by Yamaha and supported by private funders.

All artist campaign funds go directly to their chosen charity.
