Hailing from Philadelphia and based in Brooklyn, Dot Cromwell is an artist with a talent for pulling beautiful songs from challenging places. “God Bless” is an optimistic anthem that couldn’t have come at a better time. Over trap drums and gospel organs, Dot paints a picture of a brighter tomorrow.
“Additionally & specifically for people of color, we’re seeing a shift in our neighborhoods from continued mass incarcerations to food desserts to deliberate gentrification. I want people to walk away from this knowing that we’ve faced hard times before & we will again” says Cromwell.
The compilation project is a result of SoundCloud’s partnership with Pharrell WIlliams & I am OTHER where they asked the global SoundCloud community to share original tracks inspired by the moment, using the hashtag #SCxiamOTHER. After receiving over 25,000 submissions Dot Cromwell is one of twelve that truly impressed Pharrell. All net proceeds received by SoundCloud from “SoundCloud Presents: i am OTHER, Volume 1” will go to Sweet Relief and Help Musicians UK, two charities working on the frontlines of providing direct relief to the artist community.
Though the coronavirus has hit the music industry hard, it has created an outpouring of creativity and incredible music. In April we announced our partnership with Pharrell Williams and i amOTHER and asked the global SoundCloud community to share original tracks inspired by the moment, using the hashtag #SCxiamOTHER. After receiving over 25,000 submissions, your creativity has inspired us. -Soundcloud
