33.3 VINYL COMPILATION – BRITISH COLUMBIA

With music festivals cancelled, studios, live venues, and record stores closed, COVID-19 has been devastating for musicians and the teams around them.

In an effort to support musicians, 33.3 is a triple-vinyl deluxe compilation featuring BC artists. 33.3 will pay each of the selected artists $999 for a one-time, non-exclusive license of their song to use in the compilation. Net proceeds from sales of the album will flow back to the music industry through SoundOn.

Spanning all genres, the songs on “33.3” will be curated by a diverse selection of writers, journalists, poets, artists, and many more. Curators will also contribute to the liner notes and jacket art. Every piece of the chain will be 100% Canadian made.
