Album release benefits Tucson tragedy victims

Posted by Dan Marries - email

TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - In the wake of January's deadly shooting rampage, Tucsonans "came together" as a community to deal with the tragedy. Now a group of local musicians are coming together in song to benefit the families devastated by the January 8 shooting that left 6 people dead.

During National Crime Victims' Rights wee, 26 diverse musical groups representing more than 100 artists along with sound engineers and producers, who all donated their time and talents to put together a CD entitled, "Can We Get Together?"

All of the artists say they're honored to be a part of the album that benefits victims of the shooting, "we were so happy to be a part of it," says Jake Willis from the band Beyond the Firewall, "and there's really nothing you can do except send out your feelings, your thoughts, and prayers but when you physically get to do something to help that's the cherry on top!"

Kelly Pardi is the artist featured on the title track, "every person that listens to this is going to like at least one song because there is such a wide spectrum of styles and I think that's the beauty of it. It's going to speak to a lot of people."

Pardi goes on to say, "the diversity of the music on this album may surprise you. But what might be more surprising is when you consider every single one of these musicians, sound engineers, producers, and everyone else involved are southern Arizonans who donated their time and creativity for one single purpose."
