Here’s something interesting that came through my mailbox today that I thought many of you might be interested in. It comes from Jake E Wheat at StreetBlast Radio. He is spearheading a compilation CD of independent bands to raise funds for cancer research/care. I am guessing that this would not be a paying project. Nevertheless you might get to be part of supporting ongoing cancer care and research, not to mention you may raise your profile and reach new potential listeners along the way.
For more information on what Jake E Wheat is doing, please check out www.stompoutcancer.com. If you are interested in submitting a track for consideration to be on the next compilation from stompoutcancer.com, then check out the Stomp Out Cancer Opportunity on Sonic Bids. The deadline for submission is September 1, 2008. The CD itself will be released October 28, 2008 in a limited first run of 500 copies (I assume additional pressings will be based on sales). This is Volume II in the Stomp Out Cancer series. Volume I sold out last year.
One other note – I realize StreetBlast is a hardcore internet radio station, but this project is open to all genres. The song just needs to be related to the enjoyment of life, your or someone’s experience with cancer, overcoming obstacles, or a tribute to someone who has/had cancer.
This is a great opportunity to do something good for the world and get yourself heard in the process. There is a cost to submit through SonicBids, but I do not have the details.
Oh, and if anyone learns about it from here and gets accepted, please let me know. We’ll be happy to profile your involvement and maybe even get an interview up here to help promote it.
Have a great day, and be well.
