"Volume 8"

Volume 8 (opens in BandCamp)

This collection is the eighth in a series of collections celebrating the wonderful & diverse talent of Coventry & Warwickshire musicians of yesterday, today & tomorrow.

'Hot Music Live Volume Eight' is dedicated both to the people of Ukraine and to Gemma Leahy Waddell (31st May 1979 to 7th April 2022), such a huge supporter of & contributor to this project and mentor to so many young musicians in Coventry & Warwickshire, helping & encouraging them to find their own true voices and steering them through the often dangerous waters of the music business.

ALTHOUGH AS EVER, ALL THESE SONGS ARE AVAILABLE ON A "PAY WHAT YOU WANT BASIS", WE WOULD ASK FOR VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS THIS TIME, ALL OF WHICH WILL GO TO UKRAINIAN RELIEF CHARITIES.
