Diamond in the rough
Milwaukee-based The Figureheads are doing something nobody else is doing: linking education with the rhythms of next-gen-friendly music.

Milwaukee-based THE FIGUREHEADS are doing something nobody else is doing: linking education with the rhythms of next-gen-friendly music.
Having been born out of their one-on-one mentoring for kids with autism, Asperger's and development disabilities, THE FIGUREHEADS have performed for half a million kids in their four-year career. With songs like "I Am Loved" and "Born for a Reason," they are spreading messages of encouragement and hope to school-age kids everywhere.
Comment met THE FIGUREHEADS late last year, and we're proud to present an exclusive special on this needle-in-a-haystack act.
