tunes for change 22.06.11
tunes for change is an australian not for profit organisation which combines passion for art, music and our australian music scene with unbelievable passion and enthusiasm for humanity, peace and those in need.
tunes released their very first album in march 2011. it features sixteen tracks by sixteen generous artists, all donated to the organisation for a three month lease, while the album is available. and one hundred percent of profits made go to the red cross victorian flood relief appeal and the queensland premier’s disaster relief fund.
an amazing album, including the likes of gotye, john butler trio, missy higgins and passenger…but you best hurry to help as it’s only available until the 28th of this month!
and make sure you keep your eyes peeled and ears ready for album number two in the coming months. the chosen charity for these donations will this time be the the seed fund - a sydney based organisation founded in 2005 by john butler and danielle caruana. the not for profit provides grants and advise to australian musicians and bands, artists and managers.
what amazing foundations to support.

The Cat Empire's December Sale has been extended to January 6th (so it's not just a December sale no more), also Tunes For Change is available up UNTIL the 10th. Also, you should all join the Cat Empire's mailing list, so I don't have to post this. Haha.

The Seed Album/Various
Sarah Blasko - I Never Knew
Features songs donated by various artistes in support for an arts grant fund.
Angus Stone, Nick Cave, Sarah Blasko, The Waifs and more! Others that I’ve never heard before but so glad that I’ve discovered them through this album. Old Man River, Pete Murray, Little Birdy are just delightful to listen to. I can gush on forever but just go check it out.
Just $5 and a nicely curated album is yours for download. (My gosh, all my marketing spew is starting to come out) But still, just have a listen and support. <3 Or support it another time.
