NOW PLAYING RECORDS:
A TRIBUTE TO TOM PETTY
THE TOM PETTY TRIBUTE COLLECTION
So 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 rock and roll legend 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, survivors of a number of tragedies need our help. 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 that my dad introduced me to, so I have a soft spot for the majority of his discography. Any and all musicians will contribute a track of their choice to the compilation. It doesn't have to be exclusive to the collection, simply submit a cover of a Tom Petty track and it goes on! Duplicates welcome but feel free to ask what's been taken. Let's pay tribute and help those in need in time for the holidays. You have close to a month and a half to start recording!
I am putting together this collection of songs from participating songwriters that will do everything in their power to promote the release when it comes out on December 21st. 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 the organization linked below. 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 will be received by the end of November and the compilation will be available the next day.
