Songs For the South, Hurricane Katrina Benefit CD, Mische Eddins & other artists

Katrina Benefit CD: A little-known and well hidden fact is that Mische has a day job working for a small, quaint little organization called Microsoft. When Hurricane Katrina devastated those Southern communities, a group of MS Employees launched a project to create a CD to sell within Microsoft to raise money for the relief effort. That disc, called ‘Songs for the South’ is now available to the general public. Mische donated a song to the disc. 100% of the proceeds go to the Katrina relief effort, and to further assist, Microsoft matches the dollar amount. Please consider purchasing one of these discs.

Here’s the official write up:

“This album has been made possible by the generous donation of music from 16 artists. These 16 artists (or contributing artists) are employees of Microsoft, and will receive no compensation from the sale of this album.

In soliciting content for this compilation, there were submitted many times the number of tracks than could fit on the CD. While the artists and tracks below represent the public face of this generosity, the willingness of the music community at Microsoft to contribute was immediate and significant. Thanks go to all who submitted tracks – both those on this album, and those not.”
