Direct-To-Vinyl Shut-In Session Preorder: Jolly Shore Leave

$ 25.00
This project is a response to the devastating effect Covid-19 has had on the sustainability of independent artists worldwide.  Please consider supporting this wonderful artist!
We were thrilled to partner with Jolly Shore Leave of Cape May, NJ for our latest initiative, Shut-In Sessions, a very new and relevant project developed on the heels of the Covid-19 Pandemic.  With live shows and touring revenue streams absolutely dried up, now more than ever, artists need sustainable ways to connect with their audience and create art.  Shut-In Sessions create an exceedingly unique product for their fans while adding a revenue stream artists can safely execute from their homes.  We hope you'll consider supporting this artist.  They need you now more than ever. 
This Shut-In Session was available exclusively via preorder, which has now closed. Here's how it works:

1. PICK YOUR SONG!  You choose a song from the options above that you'd like the artist to record for you.

2. ARTIST RECORDS!  Artist will record an individual performance of your song in their home, complete with a personal message to you right in the recording!

3. WE CUT YOUR RECORD! After the preorder closes, we'll cut a 7" lathe cut vinyl record of your performance specifically for you.  No two records will be the same and only one copy of each will be made.  Your record will include your one-of-a-kind performance from Jolly Shore Leave, cut specifically for you.

Quantities and time are limited, so don't sleep on this one.

Preorder Close Date: 2/8/21

The song Footprints in the Snow was inspired by an interview given by Prof. Bruce Forbes of Arctic Centre University of Lapland about his latest project CHARTER and how events in his childhood inspired his love of the Arctic, where he’s conducted fieldwork annually for over 35 years. 
Proceeds from sales of this record will go to Polar Bears International. The Arctic has captured the imaginations of scientists, explorers and indigenous residents, artists, and dreamers who came before us. We believe in preserving these environments so that they may continue to inspire future generations of residents, visitors, and ”armchair” explorers.  
CHARTER is an ambitious effort to advance the adaptive capacity of Arctic communities to climatic and biodiversity changes. The overall objective is an improved understanding of Arctic change and how ecosystems and communities will navigate this transformation with implications for e.g. decision-makers, national and international climate/biodiversity policies, and reindeer governance.  
“The very idea of this project is for science and indigenous and local communities to meet and interact. It’s not about how many species of plants you have per square kilometer of tundra… [It’s about] society and ancient cultures [coexisting] with the modern things… everybody’s got a right to be here.” -Prof. Bruce Forbes
