A note about this project from Noëlle Hampton, André Moran and Gretchen Harries Graham:
Our dear friends, Mark, Kristen and Taylor Hallman suffered severe flooding in the recent crazy weather in Austin, TX. The cost of fixing up their home to make it livable again is a huge burden for them. They have to rip out almost everything and start over. They moved out temporarily and it will be a while before they can live there again.
For those of you who do not already know Mark Hallman personally - he is a renowned and loved producer/musician/mastering engineer/studio owner. We all know that times are difficult enough in the music business for all of us without something like this adding financial burden. The music community jumped at the chance to help out in any way we could.
We thought a fun way to help them out would be to create a giant "mixtape" of songs and raise money by having everyone pay what they want for it (starting donation $15). About 90% of these songs were produced, recorded, mixed and/or mastered by Mark Hallman and André Moran at Mark's Studio, The Congress House Studio. Each artist featured loaned us a song from their amazing records (some aren't even released yet, and one artist recorded a song just for this). It is one of the coolest mixtapes you will ever have in your collection. Donate what you can and receive your download of 36 fabulous songs, including artists such as Eliza Gilkyson, Jon Dee Graham, Betty Soo, Danny Schmidt, Charlie Faye, Randy Weeks, Sara Hickman, Will Sexton, The Belle Sounds and more!!!!
Please feel encouraged to donate above the minimum amount.
This is an opportunity to help one family in a meaningful way through music.
Thank you to all of the artists who lent us songs, and to all of you for helping to relieve a huge financial burden on this amazing family. It is easy for us to forget about the flooding when the sun comes out and the rivers begin to recede, but there are many families dealing with the destruction for some time to come. We can help this family.
