We’re happy to announce that we’ll be taking part in Songs for the Cure 2010.  Its a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society put together by fellow musician and composer Josh Whelchel. Its pretty simple.  Over thirty musicians from an eclectic mix of genres are writing/donating unreleased music for the project.  All the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.  We’ll be writing an original song for the project as well.  For further details on the project visit http://www.cancerdrive.org/

You can pre-order a digital copy for $10 and $25 will get you a hard copy.  Donate here.

I don’t know if there’s anyone out there that doesn’t personally know someone who’s been affected by cancer.  So pass on a couple trips to Starbucks and support a good cause… plus you get some cool tunes.
