New Arrivals, Vol. 2
MPress Records presents the second in its series of annual rising artist compilations with New Arrivals: Volume Two (NAV2). Like its predecessor, 100% of the proceeds from sales of NAV2 will benefit another worthy organization, World Hunger Year. Sales from New Arrivals: Volume One (NAV1) continue to benefit Gulf Coast Hurricane Relief, following the devastation of the region by Hurricane Katrina in September 2005. Notable indie pioneers Melissa Ferrick, Anne Heaton and Rachael Sage add to the diverse and talented roster from across the country including: Spin Doctors front-man and native New Yorker Chris Barron; Texas-based Americana vocalist and 2006 Independent Music Award Winner Kristy Krüger; Vermont-based singer/songwriter Gregory Douglass; Chicago rock / soul artist Todd Carey; and Boston Music Award Nominee Mieka Pauley. In addition, hitmaker Jeff Cohen (who has penned songs for such artists as Macy Gray, Sugarland and Tietur), appears with his NYC roots-rock outfit Pancho's Lament.
