2018.03.29: AFTER THE FIRES, VOL 1 - Mickelson and North Bay Artists Record and Produce Fire Relief Album
“AFTER THE FIRE: VOL. 1”
After the devastating fires in Northern California Bay Area artist/producer Scott Mickelson decided to do more than play a benefit show. He wanted to create something that would bring continued revenue for those affected. So Mickelson invited fifteen of the top Bay Area artists to record one track each at his North Bay studio. The only conditions were that the song had to be original and each artist had just one day to record. The results beautifully capture the spirit and artistry of the Bay Area music scene. It’s called “After The Fire Vol. 1”. All proceeds from this record and the two record release shows are donated to creativesonoma.org and undocufund.org. So far the record and shows have raised over $5,000.
Artists on this record include: David Luning, M. Lockwood Porter, Mickelson, Kelly McFarling, Sam Chase, Jeremy Lyon, Travis Hayes, Avi Vinocur (of Goodnight, Texas), The Family Crest, Bobby Jo Valentine, T Sisters, Lauren O’Connell, Felsen, John Elliott and The Crux.
Mickelson volunteered hundreds of production and engineering hours to this project. In addition, Jonathan Kirchner donated his mastering skills and artist Joshua Coffy donated the artwork. It is truly a Bay Area artists effort!
The press was also supportive: The Press Democrat, Pacific Sun, The Bay Bridged, SF Weekly and Riff Magazine.
