Coffee Shops Collaborate for a Special Benefit Release

Five Watt Coffee and Caydence Records & Coffee have joined forces to curate a special compilation of songs to help benefit our music community. This is a chance for any artist to be considered for the collaborate that will be released on CD and limited edition vinyl. All original music and any genre can submit their music online.

All proceeds from the release will donated to the Twin Cities Music Community Trust. The funds donated will directly impact someone who has lost a gig due to COVID-19 and its effect on the industry. This includes night staff, door staff, bartenders, security, stage crews, tour managers, merch sellers, photographers, local musicians, and more.

“The widespread cancellation of group events has a disproportionate impact on the music and event industry workforce and local musicians—individuals who rely on gigs to pay their bills.”

Submissions will be chosen not based on name, band, or experience in a blind panel. Here’s your chance to have your music pressed on vinyl. Submit your music before June 10th to be considered.

Special thanks to Copycats Hi-Fi Media and StudioArcade Mastering for their contributions.
