The new album was recorded at The Melody Maker Studios which form part of The Heroes Project in Manchester. It represents more than just a collection of songs but a true product of Autism having been performed, recorded, mixed and produced by talented people who are equally positive role models for the autistic community.
Heroes Project Founder & Principal Terry Snowden MBE said “Our Autistic Superstars initiative was established with the intention of developing artists and exploring opportunities for autistic talents to work together. Both Scott and A.J. are extremely gifted guys and it has been a pleasure to watch this collection of songs take shape. I am delighted with the finished result and can’t wait for people to hear the tracks for themselves.”
“People with autism think differently and have special interests and different understandings, some people will see this album as simply plugging Autism into Autism, but it’s equally about the promotion of recognition and understanding to help nurture an acceptance those who are often misunderstood for thinking outside the box.”
“ If these songs and the way they were made can help ‘neurotypical’ people to broaden their understanding of autism in a simple and entertaining way, then this collection works on many levels.”
Scott said “It’s been a pleasure to work with A.J and The Heroes Project to create something that has the potential to benefit so many. I hope you enjoy our work”
A.J. Valliant said “It was a pleasure to work with Scott on the production of these songs, I hope people enjoy them.”
Both Scott & A.J will be performing alongside other ‘Autistic Superstars’ when the Autism Show visits event city in Manchester on Saturday 27th June.
