LIVE FROM NOWHERE NEAR YOU, VOL. 2/A Benefit Concept CD: Available July 19th, 2011!

This collaborative effort between street and professional musicians with all the profits going to homeless and street youth programs of charity Outside In.

Kevin Moyer went into his attic studio alone with an idea and emerged with an emotionally vibrant compilation full of life and found sounds. By collaborating street musicians with friends and music professionals, he tells a story of life on the streets and the roads leading to and from there. With thick layers of raw and polished instrumentation, the music hits like waves of emotion eddying between the warmth of a large wool blanket and the cold of a concrete pillow. As the sounds of turntable beats wind through crowded streets and dark alleys, inspired guitars and haunting vocals dig into your chest and squeeze your heart.
