Nearly six weeks after Sandy ravaged the New York and New Jersey shore, Communities continue to rebuild. Despite the enormous outpouring and attention from mass efforts, so much of the smaller grassroots communities are still in desperate need. Much of the need is not always apparent, and as many disasters before have proven, paperwork and red tape keep much of the aid at bay from those who immediately need it. To help fill this gap we are working with on the ground, not-for-profits such as Restore Red Hook, Occupy Sandy and Green Ground Zero to help communities rebuild.
The response from musicians has been heartfelt, immediate and tremendous. Volume 2 continues where Volume 1 left off, with a wonderful mix of some popular emerging bands, straight out of Brooklyn alongside some legendary legacy artists; from Indies to Beatles, the collection of Songs After Sandy continues to grow as efforts to rebuild do the same.
