Sons After Sandy logo

Billy has offered up one of his most-recent compositions, “Somebody Loves You,” for inclusion on “Songs After Sandy,” a charity music compilation to support grassroots community-based relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. This track, which has previously only appeared on our site, will be added to Volume 2, which currently includes exclusive tracks from Dave Stewart and a bonus track from Paul McCartney, among others. The compilation will be released January 17. For the time being, the song will not be available through the site so the charity will get the full benefit from its inclusion.

From the organization press release:

Nearly 10 weeks after Sandy ravaged the New York and New Jersey shore, communities continue to rebuild. Despite the enormous outpouring and attention from mass efforts, many of the smaller grassroots communities are still in desperate need. Much of the need is not always apparent, and as many disasters before have proven, paperwork and red tape keep much of the aid at bay from those who immediately need it. To help fill this gap we are working with on the ground, not-for-profits such as Restore Red Hook, Occupy Sandy and Green Ground Zero to help communities rebuild.

The response from musicians has been heartfelt, immediate and tremendous. Volume 2 continues where Volume 1 left off, with a wonderful mix of some popular emerging bands, straight out of Brooklyn alongside some legendary legacy artists; from Indies to Beatles, the collection of Songs After Sandy continues to grow as efforts to rebuild do the same.
