Great Songs for a Worthy Cause.

Euan who writes The Steinberg Principle and who is also lead singer of The Kays Lavelle has been arranging a great wee project in aide of Depression Alliance UK. Basically he is getting artists to cover songs by Elliot Smith, Sparklehorse and Vic Chesnutt. All of whom committed suicide. Suicide is 50% higher in Scotland than in the rest of the U.K. I have had first hand experience of this terrible experience both professionally and personally. So it really is worth your time and money. Not only for the cause but because the songs are brilliant.

Contributing artists include There Will Be Fireworks, Rob St John, Burnt Island, Small Town Boredom, Sleepingdog and Keiran Naughton

Get the songs here

Massive props to Euan for putting together such a wonderful project.


  1. This is a wonderful way to contribute to the community. I will find the album. Great songs and great charity.

  2. I am glad to hear about it. Contributing with the artists is an appropriate way to the community in fund raising. By the way, I like the music on your site.
