This new EP features one brand new song and six older tracks recorded live "in the studio" with Emmit Dobbyn and Jim Myers (their first appearance on an official Marc With a C release). Also, these were recorded live to a cassette four-track, just like the old days, the first time one has been used on one of my releases since roughly 2008. Those of you that pine for the "old Marc sound"? You're in for a treat! But... why? Well...
I have a fan named Aubree. She's a very nice lady, and she's become quite good friends with Emmit. As of this writing, she's 20 years old... and she has roughly 20% pulmonary functionality. Aubree has cystic fibrosis. which is a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs but also her pancreas, liver, kidneys, and intestine. Many hours a day are spent doing breathing treatments and CPT to clear the lungs of thick mucus. Aubree is hospitalized every 3 months for at least 2 weeks to receive intravenous antibiotics for infections. There is no cure for cystic fibrosis.
As you can imagine, insurance only covers a small percentage of her needs. And while I can't solve her health issues, today I'm releasing this digital EP, and all proceeds raised will go directly to her care. We're asking a minimum of a four-dollar donation to download it, though you can pay as much as you'd like to give to help a young lady and her family in their time of need.
Alternately, if you'd like to help, but do not wish to download the EP? You can donate directly to her GoFundMe page, which will also tell you more about her battles: www.gofundme.com/3mnc7f5t
But really? PLEASE help me spread the word about this. Every little bit helps Aubree hang on and fight this awful and incurable illness.
