Harmony Helps!

Krankies Coffee Presents
Winter 2010 Compilation

CD's are $10- Proceeds benefit Arts for Life,
a Brenner's Children's Hospital Charity

Although the compilation is winter themed, you won't find any cheesy Christmas songs on here. In fact, only two songs are distinctly about the Christmas, while the rest are great songs for any time of the year. I especially want to give a shout out to my friends of the post-punk band Jews & Catholics with their "Sharkitect"! And "Trapper Keeper" by Sugar High Gang brought back memories for me. Sadly, the Sugar High Gang is now defunct, however, my friend and lead singer Shanthony Exum, a.k.a "Miss Eaves", has just released her single "Pretty in Pink". AND my awesome friend & blogger bud, Becca sings backup on "Rosetta" with Austin Pfeiffer.

The Krankies Coffee Winter Compilation 2010 is "A testament to the wealth of true musical talent in this city of Winston-Salem, the compilation is a sampling of 18 different musical acts residing in and around the Twin City, coming in at a full hour of music. 

Half of all album sales will be donated to the Winston-Salem chapter of Arts For Life, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing music and art education to children with serious illnesses during their time at at Brenner Children’s Hospital.
