Bad Year
"Here, Hold My Cake (Acoustic)"
SLN-FAV11 

"Here, Hold My Cake (Acoustic)" is Bad Year's first unplugged effort. It is a donation-based track supporting Project Worthmore (www.projectworthmore.org) & Elevating Connections (www.elevatingconnections.org).
 

Project Worthmore strives for a world in which all people are valued, included, and empowered. They provide programs that foster community, self-sufficiency and increase quality of life among Denver-area refugees. We here at Bad Year, Inc. love what Project Worthmore is doing and want to support it. Elevating Connections is a community resource that reunites siblings separated in foster care. The sibling relationship is the longest relationship in many lives. Elevating Connections creates opportunities that strengthen the connections between youth, families and their communities. They also help brothers and sisters regain a lost sense of permanency and connection by strengthening their sibling relationships through the Camp To Belong program.
 

Thanks for helping those in need. We're all better together!

Charlie Continental’s Community Tune Garden (Version 1.0)!




Charlie Continental thinks it’s project time friends!  At Rob Burleson’s suggestion, he has a little song sharing experiment type thing going on.  The idea is simple.  Charlie wrote a song and he's sharing it with anyone that wants to make their own version.  Although he has melodies, lyrics, arrangement etc for his own version, he's just providing participants with a lone electric guitar recording as a guide for complete creative freedom.  Do it solo, do it with a band, make it rock, make it dancey, change the key, add a part, make it loud, make it quiet… do what ya want!  This is open to all interested parties on planet earth!  Just email Charlie (yes, it's really Chuck Coffey of course) at snappylittlenumbers@gmail.com expressing your interest in Charlie Continental’s Community Tune Garden and he’ll send you more info plus what you need to get started... Thaaanks!
