Band Together for Peace is a compilation of eighteen Peace songs by seventeen different artists from LA and around the country. The songs represent a diverse range of sounds, including rock, pop, techno, country, reggae, folk-rock and a children's song ("We Believe").
Executive producer Barry Gruber came up with the concept for this CD as a response to his feeling that the airwaves were filled with too much negativity and hatred. He wanted to put peace into our hearts instead.
The artists come from the USA, Canada, South Africa and Ireland. The CD includes Krazy Lyin', Scott Bennett, Deborah Bishop, Patience Worth, Louise Lambert, Songs of Solomon, Fractious and others.
The CD was released on April 27, 2004 at a party in honor of the Month of the Young Child at the LA City Hall. Mr. Gruber was honored at the ceremony, and the Love Tour Resource Guide was also unveiled.
The Band Together for Peace CD has been receiving airplay on several radio stations, including being "hot" added to WPKN, one of CMJ's biggest northeast radio stations.
Let's all Band Together for Peace !
