About Us

Kids of the Kingdom is a summer program for Chicago kids.

Founded in 1977 by Gladys Bennett, KOK provides an outlet for recreation and socialization for Chicago youth during the summer through interactive events, field-trips, and lesson plans.

SocialWorks and LANDR are partnering to provide students in Chicago the necessary tools to tell their stories to the world.

Together, we’ll shape the musicians of tomorrow, by supporting the kids today.

LANDR enables musicians to create and get heard.

Using big data and machine learning to instantly master audio files, LANDR gives music creators a custom, professional master for a fraction of the cost of traditional studios.

Sign up and master a track for free, and LANDR will donate $1 to the Summer Music Academy.

LANDR provides creators with organization and workflow tools built for musicians, making it an invaluable creation platform for artists before, and after, releasing music.
LANDR's global community includes major labels WMG and Atlantic Records as well as reknowned songwriters, and was recently used by guitar legend Adrian Belew in the making of Pixar’s Piper—The 2017 Oscar Winner for Best Short Film (Animated).
In the short time since launching, LANDR has garnered major awards like CNBC’s Upstart 25, CIX’s top 20, SXSW V2V, as well as press from Forbes, Fast Company, Vice and TechCrunch.

Partnerships include major music industry players like SoundCloud, TuneCore, Native Instruments, CD Baby, ASCAP and several other major PROs around the world.
