The beauty of music is that it can make people of all influences, walks of life and personal backgrounds come together to create something for an awesome cause. The 24 Hour Music Project is the epitome of that, spawned through the vision of Executive Music Supervisor, Producer and Co-Director of Artists & Repertoire Kim "Giggles" Madden that brought some of the best musicians, minds and individuals throughout the Providence music scene to collectively make an album to stomp out domestic violence. I don't know what's better, the magnificent tunes that encompass the record or knowing all the proceeds are going to support victims of a terrible thing that either you or someone you love has had to deal with sometime in their life. Either way, The 24 Hour Music Project is a true treasure that embodies the kindness that the human soul possesses.
Recorded at Castle Entertainment in Providence, this all-star effort is supported by the likes of 990WBOB's own Tim Davis who serves as the Senior Advisor and Senior Director of Promotions, Sully's Cafe's Daniel Sullivan as an Executive Producer, Director of Human Resources & Public Relations and Co-Director of Artists & Repertiore, The Spot's Artistic Director Josh Willis being involved with promotions as well as playing a track on the album and Ben Mesiti as another Executive Producer, Sound Engineer and Co-Director of Artists & Repertoire just to name a few people among the countless who are involved with this wonderful collaboration. The sound quality is really what blows me away, audio excellence at it's finest that will put you in a state of pure ecstasy. Speaking of the spectacular songs, let me tell you about the ones I love.

It's always an arduous task, it's never easy. Picking my favorite songs off of an Album of The Week is continuously a labor of love that is filled with difficult decisions. When it's a compilation where every track is just dynamic, where do I start and where do I finish? Well as I always say, here's goes something: "The Deep" by Able Thought featuring Madden on supporting vocals is straight up ingenious, Able's unique bluesy rhythms and soulful voice along with Madden's wailing, releasing articulation make the song the perfect one to start off the record. "Wishing Well" by Torn Shorts' Josh Grabert is a track that anyone who is suffering from heartbreak and the feeling of being without can relate to, groovy riffs from Grabert make the song standout. "No Tomorrow" by Josh Willis featuring Spogga Hash is the official anthem of The Spot along with just having a good time with a chill smoke and a frosty brew, Willis' splendid voice along with the funk that embodies the track makes you want to wave your hands in the air and just don't care. "Stick Fishin'" by Sgt. Baker & The Clones' Mike Baker is the last track on the album with some dirty blues that makes you want to sit back and relax. Don't just sit there and read this without doing something about it!!! Grab a copy of The 24 Hour Music Project and support a great cause.
The 24 Hour Music Project had their album release party at The Spot on 101 Richmond Street in Providence last week on October 16th and they'll be having a fashion show at Fete on 103 Dike Street in The Creative Capital on the 28th, something you better check out to support a good cause. With all the spine-tingling, jaw-dropping tunes all for a cause that is guaranteed to inspire you, there is no reason why you shouldn't pick up a copy of The 24 Hour Music Project. Get it, listen to it, like it and love it, with all the positive vibes it embodies and the perfection that it beholds how could you not? The 24 Hour Music Project will uplift your soul to new heights, I guarantee it.
