This CD highlighting 23 of her clientâ€™s most powerful and healing songs, was created to raise money and awareness for the national Breast Cancer Fund, and SHARE, a NY state-wide organization helping women with breast or ovarian cancer.
The women musicians -- all influential in their own genres which range from rock to jazz to folk and even traditional Irish music -- donated their work for this CD. They include: Suzanne Vega; Irelandâ€™s Queen of Music Mary Black; Windham Hill jazz favorite, Barbara Higbie; singer/activist Holly Near; New Yorkâ€™s endearing Suzzy & Maggie Roche; the legendary Laura Nyro; Christine Lavin; Patti Larkin; Cris Williamson; grammy winners, Cathy Fink & Mary Marxer, west coast favorite, Jennifer Berezan; and many more.
â€œWhen I was diagnosed with breast cancer, many of the extraordinary artists and friends I had worked with over the years asked what they could do to help,â€ said Young. â€œThe power of their music provided consolation and support during the most challenging of days. I wanted to share that experience with other women for their own healing process, to promote breast cancer awareness, and to champion the cause of independent music.â€
$2 per CD sold is donated in equal parts to the Breast Cancer Fund and to SHARE Cancer Support.
