As the majority of you know, here at Choose My Music Records we have donated all of our profits to Camden Calling since the release of The State Of Music Vol.1 on 30th Janury 2012. Camden Calling are a UK Community Group who work tirelessly to support homeless musicians, artists and creatives in London. They help to arrange practice rooms, studio time, song writing workshops, gigs, equipment and a whole host of support services for anyone living rough, in hostels or supportive accommodation who want to show off their creative side.
Choose My Music Records exists because of Camden Calling, and it is fair to say that Camden Calling still exist thanks to the love and support you have shown for The State Of Music project. It is no secret that this amazing organisation would have struggled to see out 2012 with the money donated to them through our label. Your money, which you have kindly given to us in exchange for musical goodness.
The State Of Music project is something we have been working on for over 12 months now, finding one unsigned or indie label band from all 50 States, interviewing each band and then releasing a series of compilation albums is clearly a lengthy process, but your support so far has been amazing.
When we set out on this journey, our aim was to raise £1000 for Camden Calling at the very end of the project. With just one album left to be released we are now just £158 short of our goal. I am quietly confident that we will get there once The State Of Music Vol.5 is released at the end of October.
We would like to thank everyone for their support, kindness and love of music which has enabled us to help such a deserving organisation.
