If you live in the USA, you will know that as a result of the economic squeeze, there’s a cut in free music programs in schools. VH1 Save The Music is seeking to reverse that trend by donating 100% of an album to the charity. The Album is available for free, or as much as you’d like to donate.
I found out about this program after watching this video from Key Of Awesome (who have disabled embedding, so on some browsers/platforms, you may have to click the link):
The song was sent to me as a parody behind the idea of this blog, but at the end of is a plug for Shuffle.
I’ve checked out the site, and at the time of writing, you can still get ahold of the album, either for free, or as much as you can spare (they suggest around $10)
This Album is made by new and up-and coming artists. Here’s the video explenation.
It is programs like this that enable more music, done by more up artists.
If you can support them, please do.
