Dear friends,

I’m pleased to announce (this is what my friend the publicist is sending out today):

MY SONG IS MY WEAPON

 

A NEW CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED TODAY TO CREATE THE FIRST ONLINE PLATFORM FOR THE ART OF SOCIAL REVOLUTION.

MY SONG IS MY WEAPON WILL BE A COMMUNAL ONLINE SPACE FOR PROTEST MUSIC, ART, POETRY AND MORE.

CO-FOUNDED BY SINGER/SONGWRITER AND SOCIAL ACTIVIST JILL SOBULE.

***

I had this idea a few months ago of creating a platform/website where artists and musicians from all genres, walks of life and, yes, abilities could have a place to express their more political or social conscious side. I imagined a kind of virtual Washington Square Park (in the ‘60s) where you could collaborate and create songs, art or poems to highlight issues—whether local or global—that matter most to you.

Well, some folks thought this was potentially a swell idea, so they have encouraged and helped me to do this.

We are launching a Pledge Music Campaign this week to get the idea running. We are offering a bunch of “exclusive items” including an “exclusive” all-star record compilation called…

MONSTER PROTEST JAMZ, VOL. 1

monster

FEATURING SOBULE, AMANDA PALMER, TOM MORELLO, Richard Barone, Mike Viola/Dan Bern, WENDY & LISA,
TODD RUNDGREN, MARGARET CHO, WAYNE KRAMER, GARFUNKEL AND OATES, AND MORE COMING EVERYDAY!

INCLUDES NEW AND PREVIOUSLY UNAVAILABLE TRACKS

So far, it is mostly a variety of pals and acquaintances, but more are coming. And who doesn’t want to be on a record with such an incredible K-tel type cover.

And, check out the offerings, like the signed Wayne Kramer Bobble Head, signed Dan Bern poster, etc. and more are coming. I think City Winery will offer “my Song is My Weapon” wine !

Maybe “Maybe “MONSTER PROTEST JAMS VOLUME 3” will include a song or cover art of yours! Come on!!

Oh, here is the song that will be the first “hit single”. It is my new badass version of“America Back”. We are gonna do a video for it next week! With puppets!

As always, write me back with any suggestions, compliments or personal problems.

xo, jill
