The Wildfires Projekt has released their debut EP A Letter to Myself! Founded by indie artist Johnny Zirkel, this new music project is an experience focused on mental health awareness. Through a combination of music, outreach, charity work, donations, and a percentage of sales going to non-profit foundations, The Wildfires Projekt is here to help people in need and to be a voice for those struggling with mental illness. Featuring drums by Cruise Russo and production from Rob Freeman and Johnny Minardi, the new EP is currently being featured on the AltPress Discover Spotify Playlist. The new project has also received sponsorship support from MEE Audio and Chasing The Wind Apparel.
Before starting The Wildfires Projekt, Johnny co-founded the internationally recognized non-profit entity Reverse The Trend. Over the past four years, his band Reverse Order has helped bring anti-bullying and suicide prevention programs to over 400 schools nationwide. Johnny has toured the world with Reverse Order, as well as appearing on The VANS Warped Tour and other festivals. You can learn more about Reverse Order through our feature and you can check out their live performance on the WorldArts Stage. Offstage, Johnny is an L.A. based songwriter who has written with numerous producers and artists including Matt Squire and Dirty Heads.
