New Labels - Page 1

This page is for established artists you may already be familiar with who are just starting their own label or are on a fairly small independent label. Such being the case, their catalog is still small with maybe just a couple titles so far. So it's important to patronize these artists to assure their continued independent work.


Mark Craney & Friends

Mark Craney  

Drummer Mark Craney is the consumate musician who loves music in its varied forms.  He has performed Progressive music with Jethro Tull, Funk with Tower of Power, R'n'B with Eric Burdon, Jazz with Jean Luc Ponty, pop with Gino Vanelli, and much, much more!

Unfortunately, Mark is experiencing some serious medical problems and is presently on the transplant list at the UCLA Medical Center to await a double kidney and pancreas transplant!  It was the idea of Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull to put together this CD as a benefit towards Mark's considerable medical expenses.  Mark's good friends Doane Perry (Jethro Tull's drummer) and guitarist Bill Forth of Ten Seconds stepped forward to handle most of the coordination of this project.  And an incredible roster of friends came forth to participate in this event.

This is a completely unique CD which represents a range of artists that would normally not appear together under the same musical umbrella.  Mark is the musical and personal thread that weaves all of these musicians together.  There is a wide spectrum of performances, some featuring Mark while others are a tribute to him.  You'll find some unreleased live tracks here and some new studio tracks recorded specifically for this project.  All sales go directly to benefit Mark to help with his recovery.

* It is with sad regret that we must note the passing of Mark Craney in November of 2005.  He will be missed.
