So I’m pretty much sorted now with contributions for the tribute. Loads of acts who wanted to be part of the project had to pull out for various reasons, which is a real shame as the line up was looking amazing! So I don’t have as many contributions as I would have liked but what I do have is still a cracking line up of musicians who have submitted some excellent versions of tunes by Elliott Smith, Vic Chesnutt and Mark Linkous.
Linkous tunes are to the fore to be honest, but there are a couple of Smith tunes and 2 different versions of the same Vic Chesnutt tune – both equally brilliant. I am very excited about this project and hopeful that people will take the opportunity to download the tunes when they are available and support Depression Alliance UK.
So, in no particular order, the artists who have contributed or are contributing a tune are (not telling you what they’ve done as yet); Rob St John; Pink Pills; Lotte Kestner; Sleepingdog; Glissando; Kieran Naughton (Deserter’s Deserve Death); Luke Joyce (The Gothenburg Address) ; Rodge Glass (Burnt Island); There Will Be Fireworks; Small Town Boredom; Rivulets and we may also receive a couple more before the posts go up. So there should be plenty to keep everyone interested I hope. Downloads will cost £1 per track and all the money will go to Depression Alliance UK. Download them all or just pick and choose. Either way your contribution is important.
More news soon.
