We’re “Proud” to Help

June 9th, 2014

Uncle Leon and the Alibis Contribute to LGBTQ Benefit Compilation

Our friends at alt-country blog Adobe & Teardrops have teamed up with West Virginia-based Russian Winter Records to release Proud, a compilation CD to benefit LGBTQ youth organization FIERCE.

The album is slated to be released on June 28th, 2014, to coincide with the New York City Heritage of Pride March.

Lending their talents to this album are ten alt-country artists spanning the gender and sexuality spectrum. They are united by their dedication to honest music and unique worldviews: the very definition of pride.

Proud will include the song “Don’t Blame This Guitar” by Uncle Leon and the Alibis, as well as tracks from Brooklyn-based queer country band Karen and the Sorrows, Atlanta rocker Sonia Tetlow, and recent Uncle Leon co-headliners (and fellow Couch by Couchwest alumni) Miss Shevaugnh and Yuma Wray.

The ten-track album will be sold for $10 digitally via Russian Winter Records‘ Bandcamp page and on 500 limited-edition CDs. 25% of the proceeds will be donated to FIERCE. If the minimum of 500 CDs are sold, FIERCE will be able to hire an additional two interns for the next fiscal year.
