Edinburgh musicians come together to create a compilation album to benefit The Sick Kids Friends Foundation No Colour Too Strong to Paint features twenty-one of the capital’s bands

Leith based Youngteam Records today announced  the forthcoming release of a compilation album containing twenty-one tracks from Edinburgh based bands. All profits from the sale of the album, entitled ‘No Colour Too Strong to Paint’ will be donated to The Sick Kids Friends Foundation, a registered Scottish Charity. The album will be available to download from 7th May. A gig to coincide with the launch is also planned for the 7th of May and will feature live performances from eight of the bands appearing on the album.

The album was compiled by Col Mcgregor, drummer with Frantic Chant, who used his knowledge and contacts within the Edinburgh music scene to create an album of outstanding quality and diversity.

“The generosity of everyone involved has been overwhelming; from bands donating songs, to the engineer, John Durnan, who mastered it, and the promoter for organising the launch. Everyone’s donated their time and effort for free. The response has been incredible.” explains Col. “Its a great document of what’s going on in Edinburgh right now and it’s for a fantastic cause. My hope is we can raise some cash for the hospital at the same time as increasing awareness of the local music scene. If you like a band on the album, go and see them play, they want your support too. ”

The album will be available to download from all the major online retailers for £6, A limited number of CDs will be available to buy at the launch.

The launch party will be held at Maggie’s Chamber, located above The Three Sisters, 139 Cowgate, Edinburgh. The gig is organised by Ginger Music Promotions.
