It’s been weeks since Hurricane Sandy hit New York and New Jersey communities continue the long road towards recovery. The devastating impact continues to ripple through communities, and while the outward and physical signs have largely been repaired, the hidden economic impact continues to grow as small businesses, schools and individual households struggle to overcome the financial and emotional hit. “Songs After Sandy Vol 1-3″ the charity compilation on PledgeMusic aims to sustain awareness and raise funds for community based on the ground charities including Restore Red Hook, Occupy Sandy (the “Wedding Registry”) and Green Ground Zero.
The three volume charity compilation features artists from sea to shining sea, the latest including music from Texas’ own Ray Wylie Hubbard and The Cush, the Maine based Indie Folk duo Arborea, Red Hook Brooklyn’s City Billies, Gangstagrass and Tone Johanasen (of Sunnys Bar), Australia’s Luluc, Minneapolis’ Romantica to Los Angeles’ Tom Freund. Amy Speace, Ben Arthur, Davy Knowles and Antje Duvelot also appear. This volume completes the compilation, and some very special guests will be added to this in the coming weeks.
