Strand Of Oaks Shares New Album ‘Ambient For Change’
Strand of Oaks released a new album, Ambient For Change, with all proceeds benefiting the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. The five-song record is available exclusively via Bandcamp, which is waiving its fees today to support artists during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
The album is the first ambient release from Strand Of Oaks (Timothy Showalter). The release came with a note written by Showalter, it reads:
I wrote these five songs in the midst of heartbreak for the tragic events in our country. The one outlet that I have is music and the ability to create with the intention of helping. I improvised these songs to try and give language to the overwhelming emotion I was feeling and to try in a small way to lend my voice of support. I’ve spent a lot of my life talking and singing but there are no words on this record. Making these songs helped me be still and contemplate how I can be a better more loving person and stand against injustice and inequality. I hope that these songs bring peace but at the same time I hope that they can also provide a safe space for meditation and reflection on ways that we can all help be there for one another. All proceeds from this recording will be going to NAACP Legal Defense Fund. www.naacpldf.org
