Since I mentioned the compilation on yesterday’s show, I thought I would post this here for those interested. Thanks to Ryan for contacting me about his initiative.
Spill: Songs For Oil Spill Relief is a free music compilation download in support of Oceana, the largest international organization focused solely on ocean conservation. Oceana is encouraging people to help end offshore drilling through donation support and by signing their petition. Offshore drilling is a cause that the musicians on the Canadian compilation see as a global issue.
Ryan McCambridge of the band Recovery Child organized the compilation, reaching out to other musicians in the Canadian music scene. When artists heard about the compilation, they were happy to be involved. In the end, thirteen artists contributed to the song collection:
Dragonette // Lindi Ortega // The Balconies // Spirits // Clothes Make The Man // Recovery Child // Michou // Sandman Viper Command // The Junction // Peter Katz // The Salingers // StereoGoesStellar // Dinosaur Bones
