John Vanderslice contributes song to Luz de Vida: A Compilation to Benefit the Victims of the Tucson Tragedy

Luz de Vida is a compilation album of music from artists both in Tucson and affiliated with Tucson. All proceeds from the sale of Luz de Vida will go to the Tucson Together Fund, the only officially sanctioned fund established to assist victims, families, and witnesses of the January 8th tragedy.

Luz de Vida – Spanish for Light of Life – is an expression of community, love, healing, grace and hope, a positive response from Tucson musicians and national artists who have a special bond with Tucson. Luz de Vida will be available in two formats: as a 37-track digital album and a special limited-edition 12-song vinyl release, with exclusively Tucson bands.

Our own John Vanderslice contributes a song to the compilation, joining an all-star ensemble that includes Spoon, Giant Sand, Calexico, Neko Case, Meat Puppets, Ozomatli, Robyn Hitchcock, and Chuck Prophet to name just a few.

Luz de Vida is compiled by Music Against Violence, a coalition of Tucson writers, recording engineers, and venue operators. This compilation will be available Oct. 18. You can find more info HERE.
