- Ben, Marcus, Ted & Winston What We Do
“We want people to feel loved rather than used at our shows. For people to feel included as participants rather than just invited as passengers. So GOTR, having started from the four of us and our manager putting a name to what we thought we were trying to do, has now grown into something much larger. It’s a vehicle through which we get to do things the way we want to. With promoting shows, with charitable impact, with our own record label, our own merchandise. It’s the good ship GOTR in which we sail, most places we go, and we’re excited about where she takes us next.”
We have known Billy Reid for over 13 years now, and have shared respect and admiration for each other’s artistry, as well as our commitment to celebrating and lifting up the communities we are connected with.
Our friendship led us to a meeting in 2019 on the Delta tour where we talked about collaborating on a project that would be in the spirit of Gentlemen of the Road, and have a positive impact on the people we touch.
And so was born this collaboration – one that celebrates our friendship, our commitment to music & the arts, our memories of the Delta Tour, and most importantly – one that will raise awareness and funds to support the impactful work of the Equal Justice Initiative – an organisation committed to ending mass incarceration in the United States, challenging racial and economic injustice, and protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people.
We are proud of this collaboration and are excited to be finally sharing this unique and beautiful collection of pieces that Billy designed with us.
We have committed 100% of our profits as a band from the sale of these special items to EJI, and will be specifically targeted to the legal defence of clients they represent.
