Music is inspired and used for an infinite amount of things. When music is the main component in a good cause there becomes an aura around it that makes it more important. Musicians are a very charitable group so it is no surprise to find artists helping out a cause that they feel strong about. Our friends Collaborateurs have gotten together to release a record to help out the Gathering Of the Mountain Eagles.
The group of talented musicians have each brought their heart and soul to the new album Put It On The Sleigh. The 14 track record is a Christmas album of sorts with new originals and some covers. The album’s content may have some tongue in cheek humor but the cause is serious to the Collaborateurs. They are using it as a fund raising project for a charity called Gathering of the Mountain Eagles, a group that organizes special events and trips for wounded veterans and their families. A GoFundMe campaign has been set up at: http://www.gofundme.com/collaborateurs . Watch the video here:
The music on the album is both fun and with a real message to it. The opener “Overboard” is a fun jab at the craziness of the Christmas shopping season and the money we spend on it. The season is everywhere as explained in “Florida Christmas”. The song is sunny beach music with a head swaying melody that immediately puts you in a good mood. The group shows off their instrumental skills for the beautiful piece entitled “What Child Is This”. The horns and piano bring a relaxing peace to the season. The album closes strong with “Radiate” bringing all the fun and funk together for an epic piece of songwriting. The emotion in the vocals will draw the listener in and leave you wanting more.
