from The Voice Project
I am uploading some recordings I have done of my friends’ songs to my SoundCloud page. The project is called “you are my friend because I love you and not the other way around”- I know, a very Patchenesque title… Anyway, more to follow. For now enjoy these numbers originally performed by Lee Robert Watson, Noah Nelson, John Murry, and Sonny Smith. Lots Of Jackpot connections here… –James Finch Jr. (Jackpot, Two Sheds)

‘On a Good Day’ (from “Have One On Me“)
This one’s kind of a great story; the ladies in Uganda had covered Joe Purdy‘s “Suitcase,” then Joe covered REM, and then Mike Mills did Billy’s “Sing Their Souls Back Home.” Shortly afterwards Mike saw Billy at SXSW, told him he had covered his song and gave him the whole story …… The Voice Project

ABOUT THE VOICE PROJECT:
A movement begun in a small, forgotten corner of the globe and an effort to see how far a voice can carry. Women, widows and rape survivors, who banded together into groups to care for each other and orphans are using songs passed by word of mouth to tell former child soldiers and abductees forced to fight that they are forgiven and should come home. They are trying to end the two decade long war that has ravaged Northern Uganda, Southern Sudan and Eastern Congo.
‘Meet Me Here At Dawn’

Cass McCombs‘ album
