Who is a canary? Why call yourselves "The Canary Collective?" Read more here.
Above (from L to R): Jordan Lee of Mutual Benefit, Kaeley Pruitt-Hamm of KPH & The Canary Collective, and Sadiqua Iman at The Canary Collective album release show Feb 2020 in which they raised money for Earth Pearl Collective and Sunrise Movement and raised awareness through musical performance and story-telling about the importance of healing ecosystems in our bodies and on Earth.
In 2017, Kaeley helped dream up "BedFest" with healthcare advocacy organization MEAction. Hundreds of artists bedridden from illness whose treatment has not been adequately researched or covered by health insurance - including and especially those with chronic illness like Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) - connected in a virtual music and arts festival.
See the powerful gallery of stories from BedFest 2017 here and the music video featuring many of the bedridden canaries with ME sharing their cries for help in a collage set to Kaeley's song, "Believe Her," above.
