SM2 band featuring Michael Stewart, Steve Brady, Michael Quinn and James Morrison have written and produced Lower East Side to remember the victims of the infamous attacks and help New Yorkers and other people impacted heal.

Mr Stuart said 20 years on, the attack was still raw for himself and others.

"As a collective, SM2 pays homage to all the brave first responders, many of whom lost their lives that day," he said.

"Even as residents of Brisbane, many thousands of miles away, each one of its members can recall exactly where they were during 9/11."

"As I woke like everyone that morning, I was shocked by the horrific images before New Yorkers and the world.

"I went off to work at Customs thinking of those who were lost but, of course I knew like many what it would mean for a world now traumatised by the loss of so many."

The song has been played on BayFM alongside some of the bands other songs like 'Everyone's a Hero', written during the coronavirus pandemic to encourage people to stay at home.

Mr Stewart said he hoped Lower East Side would be played at the September 11 20th anniversary memorial event in New York this year and had approached the organising committee.

Mr Stewart and Mr Quinn have known each other for 40 years and in the last year, their band have featured on Bay FM 100.3 and Gold Coast FM 94.1.
