Five Years of Gravy: Celebrating 5 years of Fluff and Gravy Records
It’s hard to believe, but Portland-based Indie label, Fluff and Gravy Records, is turning 5 years old. What started as a one off vehicle to release a record for a friend has come of age, with 36 releases under its belt and an international roster that includes 20 artists.
Tomorrow (11/18), we celebrate with the release of Five Years of Gravy (cd/download). The collection of songs is not just a retrospective, but a compilation of new/unreleased tracks from 17 of our artists over the course of the label’s history that offers a glimpse of where we have been and where we are going. Featuring standout tracks include "No Regrets" from Fernando Viciconte, "Run" by Nick Jaina (featuring Henry Ratcliff), "All Along" by Anna Tivel, "Shattering Sun" from Mike Coykendall, and the sure to go viral "It Ain't Gay (to love Jesus)" by The Git Rights Gospel Revue. Five Years of Gravy is a sepia tone family snapshot, documenting a moment in time to preserve for the next generation.
Despite the wide ranging musical genre's that the above tracks and artists represent, there is an underlying commonality among this community of artists. There’s an honesty, a sincerity, to each of them that defines their art. And at a time when music is more plentiful and accessible than ever, that sincerity is what separates them from their peers. The manner in which this collection of songs seamlessly flows from one genre to the next serves as “proof of concept”.
Proceeds from this cd directly benefit The Jeremy Wilson Foundation, a musicians’ nonprofit health and services organization supported by friends, family and fans. Making it easy to directly assist individual musicians and their families during medical emergencies.
All tracks are approved for sharing on social media.
The album can be purchased on our Bandcamp page, as well as the usual (iTunes, Spotify, etc)
Thanks for listening!!
