Play It Back Songs Launch

The Play It Back Songs program immerses Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer patients and survivors in the world of modern-music creation. The participants create high-quality recordings of their own original songs using current songwriting methods with professional producers, writers, and world-renowned music creators.

Through the support of generous donors; the Wand Burns family and the Riley family, Teen Cancer America was able to create this unique program. Both families were inspired because of their talented young sons, who were both musicians, yet sadly lost their battles with cancer.

This exceptional music experience gives the opportunity for self-expression and communication in a way that other music programs can’t.

Some big industry names have already signed up to show their support and give something back to these AYAs. Musical artists such as: Benny Blanco, Portugal. The Man, Mike Posner, Billy Steinberg, and Nicky Blitz are just a few of the amazing talent that has come on board to assist with the program.

Under direction of the Play It Back Songs Program Manager, these professional musicians will work in tandem with patients and survivors to write and produce original music. The program is directed by musician and producer, Kenli Mattus.
