March 7, 2002 Songs Inspired by Literature
is a new CD from the SIBL Project
, a non-profit that promotes and supports adult literacy programs.
The CD features tracks by sixteen artists, known and unknown -- including Bruce Springsteen, Aimee Mann, Suzanne Vega, Grace Slick and Ray Manzarek. Each of the songs was inspired by a book, poem or play.
I provided the vocal percussion for "7th Step," the contribution from SIBL founder Deborah Pardes, who was inspired by Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes.
Take a listen:
Here's how you can support the SIBL Project:
Over 44 million American adults can't read above the 5th grade level -- they can't read to their children, fill out a job application, or pass a written driverís test.
All proceeds from the CD benefit adult literacy programs.
So what are you waiting for?
