project raised over $330,000 in the first two years, and has been an exciting success! This means that 33 communities now have access to clean water through the digging of deep borehole wells by Living Water International. These guys are the best, and are used by the One Campaign, UNICEF and tons of other groups. All the communities are in Southern Uganda, and we are setting the stage to do it again this year.
My task in this project is pretty cool, I get to put together the compilation and have been quietly plugging away at this for a few months, and it is going to be really good.
There was some unbelievably excellent music on the first compilation last year: Josh Ottum, Deccatree, Sleeping at Last, the Republic, PawnShop Kings, Raining and OK, Rosie Thomas, Ivan & Alyosha, Wonderful, Ryan J. Lane and Julie Jane) and you can still download the compilation here if you just enter your email. But shhhh...its sort of secret link.
In preparation for Spilling Hope Volume 2...I will be interviewing each artist that submits a song, so you can start to get acquainted with the musicians supporting Spilling Hope this year. Keep you eyes peeled!
