The collective of nationally emerging artists and “ambassadors of Nashville indie-pop” (Nashville Scene), Ten out of Tenn, come together for a benefit compilation to support the efforts to rebuild their hometown with We Are All In This Together, available now. All proceeds to benefit The Community Foundation of Middle Tenneessee.
The disc features exclusives tracks by Ten Out Of Tenn artists including: Katie Herzig, Matthew Perryman Jones, Trent Dabbs, Joy Williams, Andrew Belle, Madi Diaz, Griffin House, Jeremy Lister, Tyler James and Butterfly Boucher.
“The goal in creating Ten Out Of Tenn was to represent the diversity of musicians coming out of Nashville’s vibrant music scene,” explains Ten Out Of Tenn co-founder Kristen Dabbs. “Although many of the artists arrive from all over the World, we all feel a love and connection to this city that has influences and shaped our paths and careers. Nashville is home.”
Dabbs continues, “Torrential downpours flooded our beloved city only a few weeks ago, lifting the Cumberland River that runs through downtown 13 feet above flood stage, causing over $1.5 billion in damage, killing 30 people and leaving hundreds without a place to stay. Everyone in Nashville has been affected directly or indirectly. Aside from our individual efforts to assist family, friends, and neighbors, we felt that this was a way to contribute as a group to the rebuilding of the city.”
We Are All In This Together was released on Tuesday, May 25 and quickly reached #71 on the iTunes pop charts.To conserve monies so that more may benefit Nashville Flood Victims, the album is available as a digital promo only at the following link: http://snipr.com/wuj2k-um2
