Presents: Allison Crowe Album Announcement & Cover Art!

I’m very excited to announce the upcoming release of Presents: Allison Crowe – a collection of Allison Crowe’s best songs curated by Muruch! The album also features cover art created by yours truly.

Canadian singer-songwriter Allison Crowe has long been Muruch’s musical mascot, so it seemed fitting to celebrate her music along with’s 15th anniversary.

Our for RAINN benefit album and fundraising project was born from plotting this collection with Allison Crowe’s incredibly encouraging “personable manager” Adrian. I hope the two Allison-centric releases are the first of many albums.

Following is Allison Crowe’s official press release for the upcoming Presents: Allison Crowe, set for tentative release at the end of the month….

The scene in which Ledwidge’s fellow Irish soldiers announce their names and hometowns gave me chills and haunts me weeks after listening. You can hear it at RTE and another of Ledwidge’s greatest works at Librivox.

Bell X1’s Paul Noonan: Hole in Her Heart

I’ve been enamoured with Bell X1’s Paul Noonan since his spectacular 2008 set at Mountain Stage and he seems determined to make me adore him even more with this new song. “Hole in Her Heart” was inspired by the literal hole in his baby daughter Aislinn’s newborn heart and the care she received during her stay at Crumlin Children’s Hospital in Dublin. If that doesn’t tug your own heartstrings enough, all of the song’s proceeds will be donated to the hospital. The song was recorded as a lovely duet with Aislinn’s mother, Amy, for Noonan’s side project, Printer Clips…
