What’s better than good music? Good music helping a good cause.
Brisbane instrumental band The Francis Wolves’ Pledge Music campaign for their debut single Valley Heat, will see the band donate 30 per cent of any funds raised in excess of their goal to Beyond Blue.
Beyond Blue is a nationwide initiative that raises awareness about depression and anxiety and provides resources for recovery and management. Bass player for The Francis Wolves Brian L’Huillier says the choice to donate to Beyond Blue was a great way to combine the band’s DIY approach to music with their soft spot for the organisation.
“In my experience depression and anxiety go hand in hand with creativity. I’ve met many musicians who battle with the black dog daily and this is just a little way of us as a band showing our solidarity and saying help and support is accessible,” he said.
With packages including signed copies of the Valley Heat record, phone calls and music lessons from the band, and a collaborative song-writing experience, the Valley Heat Pledge Music campaign has something for everyone. There’s even a private backyard concert on offer!
“Some of the coolest gigs we’ve ever played were house parties, so offering a backyard concert through Pledge Music was a no brainer.”
The Pledge Music campaign gives fans a chance to pre-order Valley Heat before the official single launch party at the Bearded Lady on 22 August.
“This will be the soul party of soul parties. Get a ticket and prepare to shake your ass. It will be sweaty, soulful and awesome.”
With nearly 90 per cent of their goal reached so far, now is the time to visit The Francis Wolves’ Pledge Music page and show your support for their music and the great cause it’s supporting.
