Rock Back For Ecuador:66 Independent Artists Come Together for a Cause.

If you are a listener hungry for new tunes then I think you better check this out. 66 independent artists recorded and contributed songs to help Ecuador after a catastrophic earthquake that took many victims.

Art is all about humanity. When I was in college we had a subject devoted to Humanities and it covered paintings, music and sculpture among many things. The subject taught me a lot about the beauty of the human soul and how artists in general are easy to react when catastrophe strikes. We are not invincible. You and I could be obliterated from this world when catastrophe strikes. That is why the musicians contributed their best works hoping you will buy the album to aid the victims of the catastrophe.

It took me days to absorb everything in the album because it has different genres and styles that will really appeal to many people. These songs are well-crafted and I think you will not regret getting the album ! Musical surprises await you.

Here’s the press release for the compilation:
