NOW PLAYING RECORDS:
A TRIBUTE TO The Cranberries
THE cranberries TRIBUTE Compilation
The Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan died suddenly at the age of 46 on January 15th, and I was devastated to hear the news. I know she struggled a lot but found a lot of solace and catharsis through her incredible music. I used to put together tributes and compilations over at CLLCT before it became defunct. I've released tribute records for The Magnetic Fields, Jonathan Richman and Michael Jackson in the past. Now is the time to celebrate the work from another remarkable singer with a little help from my friends. The number of downloads were plentiful back in the days of CLLCT and it didn't cost a penny, but now, we can help those in need while paying tribute to Dolores. All proceeds from this tribute record will go to a good cause, and that's what I care about the most. Obviously, this is a tribute to a legendary musician from a truly original band, The Cranberries. Dolores O'Riordan's voice was unforgettable and I am choosing to honor her talent with a variety of great musicians covering any song of their choice.
I am putting together this collection of Cranberries covers from participating songwriters that will do everything in their power to promote the release when it comes out on February 14th. And any purchase of the compilation will go to help those in need and there will be documentation of every donation linked here. It will be available at the Now Playing Records headquarters (Bandcamp) and cost around $10. The number of songs depends on the number of musicians that contribute. Could be ten songs or fifty! The more the merrier. All that is asked of any contributing musician is that they promote the release via social media. You get lots of great music and help those in need who truly need all of the money and support in the world right now. Currently, I am looking into donating to an organization that services mental health needs for those who struggle with BiPolar Disorder, much like Dolores did. Yes you could donate directly to them which would be great, but then you wouldn't get a bunch of exclusive songs from a group of talented musicians, kind enough to contribute their talent to a good cause! All songs must be received by February 13th and the compilation will be available the next day.
