Songs For Standing Rock: Volume 2 available December 1
Standing Rock, ND - Artists, songwriters, and musicians are coming together worldwide to bring a united voice of awareness and support to the efforts protecting the Standing Rock Native American Reservation from the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). This creative initiative has a direct and focused goal - to erect permanent sustainable ECO DOMES, on the Standing Rock land.
Albums are available on a pay-what-you-want basis, with 100% of the sales (minus a 3% PayPal processing fee) going directly to the creation of permanent sustainable winterized geodesic domes, wood stoves and fire wood supplies at Standing Rock. These items will aide in helping to shelter the Water Protectors, as well as keep the domes warm once erected. Funds may also be allocated to The Standing Rock Medic Healer Council (www.medicHealercouncil.com) to aid Children and Village Elders in immediate danger. This fund will not pay Hospital Bills off-site, to keep efforts streamlined.
More than 70 diverse artists have donated songs to the project, in solidarity with this monumental conservation and humanitarian fight. Volume 2 of “Songs For Standing Rock” launches with "Hard Time,” a powerful and reverent song written by war veteran Sean Makra. Sean speaks to the current sociopolitical state of chaos and confusion, leading the town folks "praying for the rain.”
"We are working directly with Pacific Domes, Karl LaDue WoDakota Foundation, and the Medic Healer Council on site at Standing Rock to ensure that our efforts are streamlined with the current needs and vision of the elders of the tribes that have gathered on the land. It is their wish to put up structures that will benefit future generations beyond this current conflict," said Songs For Standing Rock project director Phoebe Hunt.
Albums are available for purchase at songsforstandingrock.com.
