"James Price shares touching tribute"

The tragic accident in Stillwater darkened the bright orange campus last weekend.

It's hard enough to make sense of the heartbreaking reports, but Oklahoma State University graduate and musician James Price managed to capture a warm, fitting tribute for those affected by the homecoming parade crash.

Price, 29, released "There is a Light" on Wednesday in an effort to raise money for crash victims. He recorded the song at home, and quickly sent it to John Coggins at Soundwall Studios in Los Angeles, Calif for mixing and mastering. OSU alumnus Chris McLaughlin designed the album artwork.

“What happened this past Saturday not only affects the OSU family, but the entire state of Oklahoma and people around the world,” Price said. “It’s hard to know what to say or how to encourage others when tragedy comes, so I wanted to try to help in my own way.”

Price shared that he and his family were at the parade and standing only feet away from the crash site. They were not harmed in the incident.

The Oklahoma City-based musician had this to share about the track: " 'There is a Light,' was inspired by the feelings people are struggling with, questions they want answered, and most importantly, the hope seen in the strength of community and support across the country. In times like these, we mourn with those who mourn and are encouraged to see everyone’s response to the tragedy. I hope this simple song helps shine a little light in the darkness, comforts the families who lost loved ones, and gives hope to anyone who needs it and is willing to accept it. I, along with others across the country, continue to pray for the victims and families affected.”

The song will be available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and other platforms. Proceeds will go to help recovery efforts through the Stillwater Medical Center Foundation #StillwaterStrong Fund. - The Daily Oklahoman

"Concert raises money for Middle East peace"

The Third Place was filled with people and music Friday night for a benefit concert that OSU’s Amnesty International hosted.

“We raised money for a good cause, and the crowds responded really well to the musicians,” said Jillian Holzbauer, president of Amnesty International and one of the performers.

About 170 people attended the event and AI was able to raise more than $700, said Kate Rinehart, Amnesty International treasurer.

The money will aid Middle East Peace Partners, a group of Israeli and Palestinian peace and human rights organizations, Holzbauer said.

Amnesty International will continue helping others become aware of the 40-year-old conflict in the Middle East, she said.

Jillian Holzbauer, James Price Band, The Uglysuit and Mayola supplied the music throughout the night. OSU students, professors and Stillwater citizens paid $5 admission to listen to the concert.

Antonio Laster, bass player for Mayola, said he felt the night was successful because of the number of people who went to support both the local bands as well as Amnesty International.

“Even if you don’t understand the conflict, it’s still good to know you are helping out others in need,” he said.

James Firestone, a liberal studies junior, went to the event to see Jillian Holzbauer perform. He said he has recently been trying to learn more about the problems between the Israelis and Palestinians.

“I think since it’s been in the news a lot lately, more people are starting to learn about it,” he said. “Hopefully, more students will begin to take action.”

Although Jessica Reid, a hotel and restaurant administration senior, thought the band line-up was amazing, she was also excited to see people willing to donate to a good cause.

“I think there is always a peaceful way to resolve things, and I really think it’s great when students take an active interest in things outside of their little world,” Reid said.

The OSU chapter plans on hosting the Amnesty International state conference in February and the Invisible Children organization in the spring.

In the meantime, Holzbauer said Amnesty International will continue educating others about the ongoing turmoil in the Middle East.

“The point of raising awareness is to encourage and inspire people to work for a change,” she said.

"Benefit concert tonight for peace in the Middle East"

Oklahoma State University’s Amnesty International will hold a benefit concert at Third Place at 7 p.m. to raise aid money and to bring awareness of the Israeli and Palestinian conflict.

The forty-year-old Israeli and Palestinian conflict is an issue that is relevant today and deserves balanced attention, Jillian Holzbauer, AI president, said.

This year, the money made from the $5 admission will go toward helping the Middle East Peace Partners, a group of Israeli and Palestinian peace and human rights organizations, she said.

“We would like to surpass the $800 we made last year for the Save Darfur Coalition,” Holzbauer said.

The concert will end a week that has been filled with events observing International Human Rights Month.

Mayola, The Uglysuit, James Price Band as well as Jillian Holzbauer will perform.

James Price, a public relations senior, is excited that his band gets to be a part of the event. He said he has wanted to help AI for a while now.

“This is a time in our lives when we can make a change, make a difference and be a part of something larger than ourselves,” he said.

He is interested in the Israeli and Palestinian conflict and thinks it is important to raise awareness of the issue, Price said.

“As humans, we want peace and life for ourselves,” he said. “Why should that be different for anybody else?”

Jessica Herrington, a public relations junior, plans to attend the event. Other than the live music, Herrington believes people will go to the concert as a way to help those suffering in the Middle East, she said.

“It’s easy to be self-involved, but you can’t just ignore violent situations like this,” Herrington said.

Bio

Based in Los Angeles, James Price is a singer-songwriter bent on exploring his Texas roots, love of heartland folk rock, and knack for piano-driven pop.

Price's most recent release, "There Is a Light," was released at the end of 2015 as a single to help raise money for the Stillwater Medical Foundation.

In the fall of 2013, Price released his first full-length album, "The Traveler." "This record showcases how I've evolved as a songwriter," Price said. "From all-out, dynamic rock to intimate, vulnerable acoustic movements, ‘The Traveler’ takes the listener through my own journey."

In 2008, Price entered a local recording studio to capture his integrated sound in a six-song E.P., "Beacon." The record highlights the versatility in his style by including songs ranging from grooving pop rock to purely unadulterated ballads.

Both albums are available on multiple platforms, including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and Spotify.

James Price is currently working on his newest project, "The Changing Tide," which will be released Fall 2017.
