Description

Nonprofit label Rock the Cause Records have been offering up their unconventional brand of charitable entertainment for almost a decade. Through their dedication and unwavering work, they have become internationally recognised as the pre-eminent non-profit organisation that combines advocacy and activism with music. With their upcoming release, 'Gazing with Tranquility: A Tribute to Donovan', a select group of the most incredible artists out there today and Rock the Cause have teamed up to re-contextualise Donovan's already timeless tracks into modern-day indie marvels. We couldn't be more excited to share this reverent tribute to Donovan, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer who brought us 'Colours', 'Catch the Wind' and 'Sunshine Superman', and collaborated with artists such as Joan Baez, Jimmy Page and George Harrison. An unexpected blend of classic and fresh, 'Gazing with Tranquility: A Tribute to Donovan' kicks off with Mixd Up Kidz's version of 'Atlantis', the first studio track from Chris Mars (former drummer of The Replacements). The album also boasts contributions from Sharon Van Etten, Lissie, Brett Dennan, The Flaming Lips and many more! Proceeds from the album will be donated to Huntington's Hope. As Huntington's disease is genetic, families often exhaust their financial resources on medical costs, leaving their children with little to no funds to pursue a secondary education. Huntington's Hope gives children of those with Huntington's disease financial support for their college years and hope for a brighter future. And with this many incredible artists coming together in support of the cause, we can't imagine a better way for Rock the Cause to bring hope, happiness... and music... to the masses.
