PRLog - Oct. 22, 2012 - ATLANTA -- The holiday season just got a little brighter with the release of A Rock By The Sea Christmas, a charity CD series delivered in partnership with AirPlay Direct.
A Rock By The Sea Christmas Volume Three
This year’s release features a mix of Christmas classics and original tunes that are sure to become a part of your holiday playlist for years to come. The newest release, Volume Three, comes out on October 16, with all three compilations in the series available for download to radio globally through AirPlay Direct.
Rock By The Sea board member and CD producer, Tod Elmore, adds “We hope that radio will embrace these artists and this music with the excitement and passion that we do with our fundraising efforts. This is the ultimate win-win as airplay exposure not only provides fresh content for AirPlay Direct radio station members, but also raises awareness of our charity and many of these independent artists.”
The album features music for nearly every radio format, with artists donating songs including Will Turpin of the rock band Collective Soul, Dave Philp, originally from the pop/punk group The Automatics, singer/songwriters Matthew Mayfield, Ernie Halter, Todd Carey and Steve Everett, plus emerging artists Travis Denning and Saints Of Valory. Rounding out the disc are Martin Rivas, Michael Lyons of the rock/reggae band B-Liminal, Lauren St. Jane and the Dead Westerns, Mikey Wax and Mama Gypsy.
“This is a very cool holiday CD that is something ‘different and memorable’. I am confident that this CD will be played for years to come."
