Random Acts of Kindness is a collection of musicians pulled together with the goal of having a positive impact on the world through music. Founder Ken Freirich chose the name for a number of reasons—not only does it embody his strong belief in making the world a better place, but he liked the word “random” since it describes his approach of pulling in a variety of different musicians to record each song. Unlike a traditional band, the group is made up of musicians—”random acts”—who collaborate on each special track.
