Stream the brand new compilation from Pittsburgh based record label Crafted Sounds. And something to warm your hearts... Big proceeds from this release will go to Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania, so get your wallets out you cheeky ones! Here's a quick-fire interview with the man behind it all
Hey Connor, tell us more about Pittsburgh and its music scene?
I can certainly tell you the DIY scene here is alive and well. It seems that Pittsburgh does not get as much press as other cities like Philly, DC, New York; so I wanted to highlight what is going on here, and contribute to a good cause while I am at it. Here is a cool video that highlights one of the heroes of Pittsburgh music scene, Jackson Boytim, so you can kinda get the gist.
Most benefits will also go to Planned Parenthood, right?
Planned Parenthood is about to lose all federal funding due to the Trump Presidency. It's frustrating to witness this because PP provides a tremendous amount of service to people that need it, and the fact that this going away due to Mr. Trump's pro-life views is simply outrageous. PP offers services and information to people beyond abortion, and it is upsetting to see that one political view can cut federal funding for such a great organisation in the United States.
If I can highlight PGH music and PP in one project I will do it, and that's what I intend to to with Have a nice day. All digital proceeds will go to PP of Western Pennsylvania and 50% of physical proceeds will be donated as well.
What triggered the Have A Nice Day compilation, then?
I am currently a student at the University of Pittsburgh, and it is very cool to see a good amount of past and present Pitt students on this compilation. I am really looking forward to the benefit shows I put together to follow the release as well. It should be a good time, and I hope to raise a good amount of money. The first benefit show will actually be kicking off Surf Bored's spring tour, so there's that too.
