Join Treehouse Sound In Supporting Keep A Breast

Treehouse Sound, located in Jersey City, New Jersey, is proud to announce, in conjunction with Keep A Breast, a brand new local band compilation. Not only will the release seek to increase awareness of breast cancer, all proceeds will go to Keep A Breast Foundation.
Says Treehouse studio owner Wes Kleinknecht, "Like most studios, we have days in between sessions where nothing is booked. We figured instead of wasting that time, we would be proactive. We invited some of our favorite bands to come over and help us out with a great cause. Each band was given one day to record one song for the Keep A Breast charity. Some form of cancer has directly affected every single band on this compilation."
Treehouse made use of its aforementioned downtime to bring in artists and friends from local bands in order to give back to the community by recording and releasing a 13-track compilation album that highlights some of the newest and most promising New Jersey talent, in addition to a few more well-known names.
The comp features artists such as: Jody Porter (Fountains of Wayne), The Scandals, Gazelle (Zeena Koda), Hell and The High Waters (Ghost Thrower, Therefore I Am) and Something About Death or Dying (The Gaslight Anthem). The compilation kicks off with a song by the Treehouse Sound, which features at least one member of every band.
The compilation is available now on iTunes and the studio has launched a Kickstarter with hopes of raising enough money to press the record to vinyl. All proceeds will go to Keep A Breast.
You can purchase the comp over at iTunes.
You can also donate to the Kickstarter campaign.
Initially conceived as a way to raise money for awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness month, the compilation became a very personal mission for those involved.
