Curators and their Launched Artists

LaunchLeft Podcast

LaunchLeft took the concept of artists helping artists to podcast format from 2017-2018. The 12 episode season hosted by Rain Phoenix and Moon Zappa, featured in depth interviews with well known curators tipping their hats to emerging bands. The ladies brought the podcast to live audiences at Largo for a short while with shows that included famous comedians and live musical performances by rock star curators and launched artists.


Founded in 2010, LaunchLeft evolved out of Gift Horse Project which brought together well-known and emerging artists in the service of charity. LaunchLeft takes this mission and ethos of social responsibility to the for-profit sector furthering our commitment to artists helping artists.

Aleka’s Attic


In the corner Dunce

Official video for ''In The Corner Dunce" written and recorded by River Phoenix when he was 18 years old. The footage is from the 1991 Aleka’s Attic tour, of which half the gigs were benefit concerts for causes he supported. LaunchLeft is inspired and informed by River’s left-of-center approach to music, art and activism.

“ I think that it’s very important to establish a space for those who are not accounted for... I’m speaking of people that don’t fit into a leaves out a lot of people in this world that aren’t the model, you know, in a fashion sense, citizen. I just, I protest that, and think it’s important to [make art] that stirs up that idea… that starts some sort of controversy. “ - River Phoenix
