Every aspect of this project has been donated to the cause and is attributed to Dr. Matt. This includes the musician’s time, studio space and recording (Mark Addison of The Aerie Studio), album mastering and production (Mark Hallman of The Congress House Studio), food/drink during the recording session (Uncle Billy’s), album distribution (Waterloo Records), photography/graphic design (Sanne de Mûelenaere), marketing/PR (MMS::Maven Marketing Solutions), and the venue for the CD release party (Antones). “I’m fortunate to have good hearted, like-minded people in my life who believe supporting Austin musicians is essential,“ he says. “Our community thrives on their creativity and has established Austin as one of the 10 best places to live in the United States,“ he continues. “Without them, Austin would be a very different place, and we think this CD is a great way to share the amazing talent Austin has with the world. We look forward to the community’s support and establishing this project as an annual celebration and fundraiser.“
