Life Sounds Great

Songs from Music City, MD  facebook_32


Compilation albums are like speed dating. You spend a few minutes meeting a variety of artists over the course of an hour. Hopefully, you find someone you want to go out with again. For this project you don’t need to travel far. Catonsville is known as Music City, MD because dozens of musicians and music stores reside in town. Life Sounds Great Vol. 3 showcases our diverse and talented artists (so does  Vol. 1 and Vol. 2).

Volume 3 CoverBy purchasing a copy, you are supporting the Catonsville 4th of July parade and fireworks. All proceeds go directly to the Catonsville Celebrations Committee.  Walk over to Bill’s MusicOpie’s, or Pat’s Porch to pick up a copy. You can get digital downloads at CDBaby,  but buying a physical CD will make it easier to admire JJ Chrystal’s graphic design work.  Bill’s Music will ship for free if you are out of town: 410.747.1900.

If you meet someone you like, check out the bands’ contact information below. Most play around town (some around the nation), and all are available to play your next event.

Check out the Catonsville Times article for more details. See you @ Lurman  and Frederick Rd Fridays!
