Central Coast musician Luke Bellows is sharing the spirit of Christmas this year with his new album “Sea & Son’s”, released later this month. With the profits from his album sales, Luke will provide musical instruments for children with autism.

“Learning to play music has given me a voice, it is the purest form of communication I know. I believe that through learning to play music, children with autism can have an opportunity to express their emotions more easily, and communicate without the barriers of language" Luke said.

"50% of all album sales from Sea & Son's are donated directly towards musical instruments for children with autism at the non-profit Aspect Hunter School in Newcastle. In collaboration with Muso's Corner Newcastle, I have setup an account on behalf of the school which they can use to buy musical instruments for their 100+ students, and the multiple satellite classes they run around the region.”

“We are so very grateful for Luke’s generosity and support for our students. We are looking forward to the many musical and sound exploration opportunities that this will provide.” said Heath Wild, a teacher from Aspect Hunter School.
