Backers of “Ride the Wave”, Volume Two — the double-CD featuring 37 tracks of Bermuda music –are confident the charity project made a huge splash when it went on sale at Harbour Nights yesterday evening [May 18].
“Ride The Wave”, Volume Two — featuring original material by established artists like Troy Anthony as well as newcomers including Francesca Dill — was available outside the Freisenbruch Meyer Building at 75 Front Street.
“Last year we released ‘Ride the Wave’, Volume One for $20 and raised $40,000 for The Coalition for the Protection of Children,” said producer Tony Brannon, the veteran Bermudian entertainer and tourism activist who spearheaded the project along with insurance executive Michael Freisenbruch. “We would like to thank all Bermudians and visitors alike for their support and look forward to surpassing last year’s sales with our second release.”
The new “Ride The Wave” release features musical styles ranging from reggae and hip hop to folk and alternative. Part proceeds will benefit the Coalition for the Protection of Children.
