Originally started as a fundraiser to help pay for Dave Lamb's medical care before he passed away from leukemia in 2014, this two disc album is now a tribute to Lamb and his band Brown Bird. It will now be used to raise funds for Sweet Relief which offers financial assistance to career musicians facing illness, disability, or age related problems.
One truly unique aspect of this tribute album is that it features Lamb's friends, fans, and collaborators. That might take some of the bigger names out of the mix, but you get interpretations of his songs by people who truly care about the man and the music. Of course, Brown Bird's influence was pretty far reaching, so we still get versions of songs by names such as The Devil Makes Three and Joe Fletcher. The first track we can hear is "My Mind is An Altar" by South China, which is made up of former Brown Bird members Jeremy and Jerusha Robinson. You can hear that song below.
To pre-order your copy of the two disc A Light I Can Feel: A Tribute to Brown Bird, head over to Burst and Bloom Records. It should be released on March 24. As always, for everything Brown Bird related check out their website.
