The Camp Fire, the worst fire in California’s history is presently taking place. As of this printing, even though the fire is contained, it has been reported that there have been 83 deaths, 699 missing, 15500 Structures Destroyed and thousands of animals have died. Sadly, those numbers will only increase.
Barbara Sobel the CEO of Sobel Promotions (www.sobelpromotions.com) who has been voted Dance Music Promoter Of The Year for two years, saw the devastation and new she could not sit by and do nothing. Thus, she did what she does best. She called her musician friends and those in her company asking for a non-released song for a compilation for a charity record in which 100% of the proceeds would go to the Humane Society Of Ventura County. This organization has been helping rescue and evacuate animals from the wildfire.
The support was absolutely amazing from an eclectic group of artists donating music from different genres such as Dance, Faith Music, Rock, and Reggae. Artists such as StoneBridge, Gaurangi ft. Boy George, Steve Etherington and John Richardson (from the Rubettes), Tight Fit, East 17, Nicki French, Soraya Vivian, Amber Dirks, and Prince’s former DJ Larry Peace handed in material plus numerous other Indie Artists all contributed to the project such as Faith Artist Sam Driz and with the youngest contributor being 13-year-old prodigy Phoebe Austin. There was so much interest in the project, that it was decided that there would be a 2 part set.
The 2 Part Charity Record “Tears Aren’t Enough” will be released to radio stations and DJ’s in early December and will be available shortly after on iTunes, Beatport, Spotify, and other download media.
