A project I've been involved with has come to fruition; Thirty One –
a compilation album featuring Elbow, Everything Everything, Delphic,
Murkage, Noel Gallagher, Jim Noir, Durutti Column and more.
To raise money for the charity CALM - which aims to provide support
for those suffering from mental illness or depression, with a focus
on reducing the high suicide rate amongst men.
There's a brilliant short video here; http://www.thirtyonesongs.com/
The tracks on the album have been sourced, chosen and compiled by me.
It’s got 31 tracks on it and has already been described as "the best
ever Manchester compilation"! And any reviewer said; "The mixture
and quality of every track on here is first-rate, put together with
the love; thirty one tracks of pure excellence."
It's all artists with a Manchester connection working now, no
nostalgia – familiar faces and upcoming talent combining.
Please have a look at the video!
And please cconsider buying an album; you can download it on the
website or buy it from the likes of HMV, Amazon, or Piccadilly
Records. At least £7 per album sold goes directly to CALM, but it's a
great collection of music in its own right.
It's been a great project to work on.
