Live From Nowhere Near You (Volume 2) is a charity concept CD with collaborations between street musicians and professionals. The album – three CDs, 210 minute long – tells stories of life on the streets and was made with no label support: most of it was recorded in Kevin Moyer’s actic, studio, basement, and in donates spaces, under bridges, on the road.
Collaborating with the street performers are musicians such as Pearl Jam, The Strokes, Bright Eyes, The Dandy Warhols, Pink Martini and many more. You can find the full list, as well as buy the CD, here. You can also buy volume 1 of the same project, which was released in 2003, here.
All the profits are going to homeless and street youth programs of the Pacific North West – this just in the remote case you needed an extra reason to click on the link and buy the CD right now.
