Smith/Chesnutt/Linkous Update

So, the Smith, Chesnutt, Linkous charity project has been going on for a while now and has been doing ok, I guess.  So far I’ve raised about £70 for Depression Alliance UK.  Given that the tracks are only £1 to download, and given that paypal take a cut from each sale, regardless of where the money is going, it’s not a bad start I think.  However, I am keen to get it out there to more people and to raise as much money as possible for my chosen charity.  It is hard to get people to part with their pennies though, and also to make more people aware of the project.  The response of musicians has been really interesting.  I’ve had some amazing artists contribute to the project and since it started have had others approach me to ask if they can still submit music.  The answer to this is, of course, yes.  There was never any time limit placed on the submission of songs.  In addition, people waiting for all the songs to be bundled together before they buy should be aware that this might not even happen.  I’ve not decided what to do once all the submissions are up.  Hopefully I’ll get some more uploaded this weekend.  So please, at this time, if you want to support the project and buy a song – do it now!  It’s all for Depression Alliance UK and it’s all in remembrance of three wonderful artists who left our world all too prematurely.  You can download all the tunes so far here.  Please do!
