Ep 8 - Song 6: "Higher Than Trees" by Neon Daisies

Neon Daisies were part of the Girls Rock! Iowa City 2014 summer camp.

"Girls Rock! Iowa City is a community organization dedicated to fostering girls’ creative expression, positive self-esteem, and community awareness through rock music. With music education programs for girls ages eight to sixteen, Girls Rock! is committed to educating girls about the musical, technical, and creative aspects involved in musicianship. Unlike boys, who have long dominated rock ’n’ roll, young girls are rarely encouraged to explore self-expressive creative outlets and are less likely to be given access to musical and technical instruction or equipment. Girls Rock! Iowa City wants to change that...

"Most of the Girls Rock! campers had never picked up a musical instrument, and within a week they formed five bands, wrote original songs, performed them live, and recorded studio versions of their tracks at the United Action for Youth facilities. That’s some week!"
