The Story So Far
One in Seven is a charity musical project aimed at raising awareness and funds for prostate cancer charities. The project features an Aussie rock n roll supergroup formed from members of legendary and up-and-coming bands including Baby Animals, The Screaming Jets, Electric Mary, Massive, Dellacoma, Tequila Mockingbyrd and many more.
Prostate cancer affects one in seven Australian men during their lives. It is currently the second highest cause of male cancer death yet it is one of the most survivable cancers if detected early (92% chance of survival past 5 years). What most don’t know is that a simple blood test at age 50 (age 40 if family history) could show warning signs years before any symptoms develop.
ONE IN SEVEN have recorded a rocked up version of the Byrds classic “Turn! Turn! Turn!” at Lighthill studios with producer Ricki Rae (X-factor, Taxiride) at the helm to raise funds for and awareness of the cause.
It is an upbeat song for the times featuring over 20 vocalists, 6 drummers, 6 guitarists and 3 bassists. It is also the only known version of this song to feature a didgeridoo! The track is led by the dulcet tones of Rusty Brown (Electric Mary), backed up by an all-star cast.
Turn! Turn! Turn! just got turned upside down and inside out and brought into the 21st century with an almighty bang, and all for a great cause.
All funds raised will be split between The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, Prostate Cancer UK, the Movember Foundation and The Rennie Grove Nurses who provided information and support for Josie (project coordinator) and her family during her father’s recent battle with the disease.
