Caring Is Cool CD Compilation!
I think I forgot to mention this awesome band with whom I’ve been lucky enough to perform for the past year. The name’s The Hidden Words, and it mainly focuses on setting the texts of the same-titled compilation of beautiful spiritual gold nuggets, “The Hidden Words“, by Bahá’u’lláh. Other texts sneak in here and there from the same Author, and also from the Báb.
Here’s a video for our upcoming CD launch in late October! (Details to come!)
And another fun live one!
Anyway, long story short, Alden Penner (singer/songwriter of Hidden Words) was asked to create a song for a benefit CD compilation where 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Relief International’s Recovery Effort in Japan. (Earthquake was in March but they still need help y’all!) The project is spearheaded by the lovely Charlyne Yi (Paper Heart, 2009).
Most of the band ended up pitching in for Alden’s tune and it turned out to be a fun bouncy song about … a snake. Anyway! The compilation is due to be launched on the 1st of October in L.A., and on the 8th of October on iTunes and CD Baby!
