More importantly, however, the project is creating a sense of community among musicians and fans alike — one that stretches across oceans to fans as far away as Italy and the UK. "It's a way to ultimately feel engaged and still feel a sense of community in a time where you can't see people face-to-face," said Kerman. "I think music allows us a chance to … feel connected to other people," he said. "When you're hearing the stories that you hear through songs, and you're able to relate to them, those are the things that keep me going."The band is calling their new project Flatten The Curve Music Class, encouraging fans to practice social distancing while engaging with others virtually and learning something new in the process. "There are silver linings to be found throughout all of this, and I think every day I'm learning something new about myself and something new I can bring into the world," he said. So while Shakespeare may have written King Lear while he was quarantined with the plague, let it be said that while we were quarantined with COVID-19, we formed some seriously kick-ass virtual cover bands.
