ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Well known photographer of musicians Releases of a CD Compilation of healing music created during her struggle with Breast Cancer.

This CD highlighting 23 of her client's most powerful and healing songs, raises money and awareness for the national organization, the Breast Cancer Fund.

The women musicians -- all influential in their own genres which range from rock to jazz to folk -- donated their royalties for this CD. They include: Suzanne Vega; Ireland's Monarch of Music Mary Black; Windham Hill jazz favorite, Barbara Higbie; singer/activist Holly Near; New York'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.

"When 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," said Young. "The 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."

$4 per CD sold is donated to the Breast Cancer Fund.

With the release of this benefit compilation, music photographer Irene Young brings breast cancer awareness to the music industry with the help of so many musicians she's photographed. Diagnosed with breast cancer herself, she pull together this CD of donated music in the hopes that it would help anyone facing hefty challenges, as well as raise some money for the Breast Cancer Fund. The songs are full of light and life, coming from industry professionals who not only pack a punch with their weighty names, but with their alternating styles of folk, rock, jazz, pop, and everything in between. With Irene and so many prominent female musicians finding themselves at the mercy of strenuous chemotherapy treatments, there's no avoiding the fact that this disease is very real, but the CD is designed to bring hope and comfort. For the month of December, the regular $2 donation per CD sold is doubling to $4. All the more reason to get the CD.

Great uplifting music by generous artists for a noble cause!
I saw a handful of the artists featured on this CD at a supporting benefit concert in Berkeley. I left the show feeling inspired & determined to do something in the fight against breast cancer. This is healing, empowering music with a message for ALL of us, not just those struggling with breast cancer. All musicians, songwriters, producers & record companies donated their royalties to the cause. The songs are incredible & well-performed by a diverse group of women musicians. This CD immediately went in my car & will no doubt stay there for some time.

Love it
I have enjoyed Irene's photo's for years on the albums of my favorite artists. It was a pleasure to give back with this purchase. How can you go wrong with the cast of "stars" on this CD
