Eric Knight featured on the new "Give To The Gulf" Benefit CD. Raising money for the Gulf families

Eric Knight featured on the new 'Give to the Gulf, Vol. 2' CD. Music on iTunes Raises Money for Families of Gulf Coast Oil Spill Disaster.

Give To The Gulf™ grassroots effort continues to raise money one song at a time with release of 'Give To The Gulf, Vol. 2,' a collection of 14 original songs now available on iTunes.

 

Musicians and entrepreneurs have come together for the second time in just two months to help the victims of the Gulf Coast oil spill. Give To The Gulf™ continues its effort to raise money one song at a time through 'Give To The Gulf, Vol. 2,' a collection of 14 original songs now available on iTunes.

'Give To The Gulf, Vol. 2' includes songs from artists from all over America, and spans a wide range of music styles and genres ranging from Cajun blues to acoustic folk to rock to alternative.

“Give To The Gulf is an incredible opportunity for artists to gain worldwide exposure while helping to make a difference in the lives and communities of the Gulf Coast region,” said Eric Knight, one of the originators of this fund-raising initiative. “This project represents a new model in charitable giving where making a financial contribution is as easy as sharing music and downloading a song.”

Give To The Gulf is a grassroots effort conceived by Knight, a musician, inventor, entrepreneur, and founder of Remarkable Technologies, Inc. Working together with musicians Paul Lombardo and Tom Russo of L&R Productions Inc., and audio engineer Mike Sokol of JMS Productions Inc., the team developed the online model for the Give To The Gulf Web portal, collaborated with musicians from around the country, and established relationships with corporate partners including Apple iTunes, TuneCore.com, and the United Way.

When visitors download Give To The Gulf music through iTunes, 100 percent of the monies that musicians would normally receive go directly to the United Way Gulf Recovery Fund. This fund provides emergency assistance, such as help with food, rent, and utilities, and supports long-term recovery efforts to rebuild lives through educational, financial, and health-related programs.

Musicians submit their music through the GiveToTheGulf.org Web portal. While they do not receive any proceeds from the sale of their music, they gain free broad exposure while retaining all ownership and copyrights to their music -- as well as the opportunity to directly help families and communities of the Gulf Coast.

“We are hitting our stride in building Give To The Gulf. Volume 1 got us off to a terrific start. Volume 2 continues the momentum, and we’re already working on Volume 3,” says Mike Sokol, the lead sound engineer behind Give To The Gulf. “The songs in this collection are infectious. I’m amazed at the depth and breadth of musical talent that have offered up their music for this fine cause. We can’t wait to start the next Volume.”

As mentioned by Sokol, 'Give to the Gulf, Vol. 3' is already in the works. The team is currently looking for additional artists to contribute original songs to help support the project. Artists interested in submitting work for consideration should visit GiveToTheGulf.org.

Give To The Gulf is an all-volunteer effort. Partners who have donated their time and talents to launch and support this campaign include: Remarkable Technologies, L&R Productions, JMS Productions, TuneCore, Parkinson Design, Video2People, and MAD Communications.

Eric Knight returns to perform in Anaheim for the 2011 NAMM Show

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Anaheim, CA) January 10, 2011 - Eric Knight is gearing up set to return and perform at the National Association of Music Merchants yearly NAMM show in Anaheim. Music merchants from around the US as well as musicians alike will be gathering for the annual juggernaut which begins this week.

Eric kicks off the event with a performance on opening day this upcoming Thursday January 13, 2011 at 4pm. Eric which represents MXL microphones (a division of the Marshall amplifier company) as an endorsee will be performing hosting a booth performance at the convention. This marks the third year in which Eric will be performing at the NAMM show.

Eric will be performing some of his songs from his first two albums as well as new songs from his upcoming third album entitled ‘Delusions Of Grandeur’, which he says “will be my most important album ever.” Eric Knight has always been devoted to making great music and giving his fans a great show and he will do just that this coming week at the Anaheim Convention Center in California when he performs. “I’m really excited to be a part of performing at NAMM again. Every time I come here its just a great energy and a chance to connect with so many great musicians as well as incredible music companies. MXL is one of those companies and I’m proud and honored to be a part of their showcase as well as use their products.”

NAMM has hosted a conference gathering musical artists, and merchants, to share their years worth of developments in an open forum exhibition. The NAMM convention hosts representatives from every walk of the music merchant industry.

 


ABOUT ERIC KNIGHT
Eric Knight has taken the contemporarily appropriate "do-it-yourself" attitude to a whole new level. Opening for acts including KISS, Dave Matthews Band, Aerosmith and Kid Rock, Knight has worked tirelessly to introduce his original music to the masses. In December 2008, he walked away with Outstanding Male Solo Artist bragging rights at the Rockies Awards in Hollywood. Dressed to kill in a sharp suit and tie, he offers a decidedly unbridled take on rock that remains tastefully aware of rock and roll's pioneers but determined to redefine it even as he picks up the torch. Knight is currently working on his third album, Delusions of Grandeur, slated for release later this year.
