Saddle Creek recording artist Orenda Fink has made her debut album Invisible Ones available for download on her website now through the end of January in an effort to encourage relief effort donations for the current crisis in Haiti.
Here is a portion of the letter that Orenda has posted on her website:
"My buddy Jeff Tafolla, who works with Saddle Creek, called me today and asked me to share a few words about Haiti. He knows (as I know some of you do) of the close relationship I’ve had with Haiti for several years now. My first solo record “Invisible Ones” was directly influenced by time spent there…even the title is an homage to this place I’ve grown to love so much.Click over to Orenda's website to read more...
The last few days have been intense: alternating between despair over the tragedy, hope that my friends are okay, relief when the news comes of those that have survived, and grief over the ones who haven’t.
I’m still waiting to hear news of many friends in Port-au-Prince, and points beyond."
