Rock For Water is a fund-raiser that I (Jono Bacon
) am running to raise money for WaterAid
to help bring clean water to people in poorer parts of the world.The idea is simple
: I wrote and recorded 'Trilogy';
three acoustic rock songs I originally wrote for my wife when we first
got together just over five years ago, as well as a bonus fourth song. I am providing the songs here free to download and all I ask for is a donation to WaterAid
. I would like to raise $1000
if possible, but preferably more if possible!
The link to the songs is below, but I trust you nice people will donate if you like the music. :-)
ABOUT THE MUSIC
'Trilogy' is a collection of songs that I wrote, performed, and recorded in my studio.
originally recorded these songs for my wife five years ago while we
were dating. They chronologically tell the story from us meeting (Smile) to waiting to move to be together (Wait For Me), to the trip over to start our new life together (One More Day).
The original versions of these songs have only ever been heard by
Erica, but recently I completely re-recorded them, and it is these far
higher quality re-recorded versions I am providing here.
The songs included are: * Smile
(6.36) * Wait For Me
(5.21) * One More Day
(4.31) * Endless Days (Bonus)
The four songs weigh in at 20mins 24secs and are available in a package of 48k/160kbps including MP3, Ogg, and FLAC files.
