{The Cake Sale}


Here's an album that's been on my regular rotation lately...

The Cake Sale are a band featuring a loose and expansive collective of musicians and writers who have combined to create a nine-song CD (of the same name) for Oxfam Records featuring some of todays greatest vocalists. All profits go to support Oxfam Ireland's Make Trade Fair campaign.

Lead vocalists for the project include: Lisa Hannigan (whom you may recognize from Damien Rice's albums), Nina Persson (of The Cardigans), Gary Lightbody (of Snow Patrol), Gemma Hayes, Glen Hansard, Josh Ritter, Conor Deasy (of The Thrills) and Neil Hannon (aka The Divine Comedy).

Here's a freebie...
