TEN LOS ANGELES AREA MUSICIANS DONATE ORIGINAL SONGS FOR NEW CD "WHERE THE VOICE GROWS" IN EFFORT TO RAISE FUNDS FOR CHARITY
Disc Available Now, Full Profits To Be Given To Medicine For Humanity And Annual Special Games.
A 10-song compilation CD of artists from the Los Angeles community entitled "Where The Voice Grows" was released in an effort to raise funds for the physically and mentally disabled and the fight against women''s cervical cancer.
Artists and songwriters each contributed one original song for inclusion on the disc. All profits will be used to benefit the women''s world heath organization Medicine for Humanity and Loyola Marymount University''s annual Special Games, which offers area adults and children with physical and mental disabilities the opportunity to participate in numerous sporting events in a fun, non-competitive environment.
Ten songs were chosen for the disc from hundreds of potential donations, including a song by Grammy award-winning songwriters Doug Cotler and Richard Gilbert, "Pray for Rain." Cotler and Gilbert earned a Grammy for their combined work on 1983''s Flashdance soundtrack. Other independent musicians working and performing in the Los Angeles community who donated tracks include Gretchen Harris winner of the 2002 Unity Award for Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year, indie rock group Cowspace, and indie label artist Nick Alt who also serves as Executive Producer for the project. Jazz saxophonist and Warner Bros. recording artist Kirk Whalum also makes an appearance on the disc.
Record Label Marymount Records, a new arm of The Marymount Institute at Loyola Marymount University, will release the disc as their first project.
"This disc is really an incredible first endeavor in the sense that so many talented artists donated their time, their labor and their very personal creations to help two very worthy charities," said Marymount Records Executive Producer Nick Alt.
Six of the final 10 tracks chosen for "Where The Voice Grows" were demos when submitted to Marymount Records. With donated production and studio time, those tracks were professionally re-recorded and produced by Alt at his Los Angeles-based recording studio.
