We put a shoutout last week to bands and artists on social media, (and sent a few emails), outlining our intention - to compile an album by bands and artists who have played at Nivara Lounge, and sell it via bandcamp to raise funds to help Ivan and his staff through this period of zero income. We've seen enough live music venues come and go over the years, and we don't need another.
We were blown away by the response and can't believe how amazing this collection of songs sounds together. If you have any spare time (ha!) play it from start to finish. It's brilliant, even if we do say so ourselves.
A massive thanks to all the bands and artists who contributed their songs. If you like a particular song make sure to check out the 'info' section for that song and click through to the band's individual page to hear more of their music and support them. Huge thanks too to Scott Newth at BLKHUS Productions for mastering the album and Grant Stantiall for the use of his photograph.
We realise that these are difficult times for a lot of people financially, but thought setting a minimum price of $10 was fair for 23 songs. If you can afford to pay more please do so, I am sure it will be greatly appreciated by Ivan and his staff. All sales go directly to Ivan via Paypal.
Stay safe, enjoy the music, and see you down the Lounge at some point.
