Kevin Coval, Jamila Woods and Tasha Announce Split 7" via Vinyl For A Cause

"Frequent collaborators Kevin Coval, Tasha and Jamila Woods have come together for a special limited edition 7" Vinyl Release in partnership with Vinyl For A Cause. 80% of all proceeds of 1,000 records will be donated to Young Chicago Author's operating budget. As a shout out to Chicago, the vinyl will be pressed in a red and blue splatter. Each copy of the record will be hand signed and numbered. The release artwork was designed by Chicago artist Paul Branton and will be included as a postcard signed by Woods and Coval. The record itself features 3-pieces; Coval and Tasha on Side A performing "Snow Day" - a take on Jamila Wood's original track "LSD." Side B is Jamila Woods turn, with her own rendition of Coval's poem "Muddy Waters Goes Electric." 

Vinyl For A Cause was founded by Charlie Greengoss and Adam Victorn. The two started the company as a way to bring together music fans, community leaders and artists for a "meaningful conversation." The duo have been driven the past two years by the idea that music can be a driver for charitable good. Coval is the artistic director for Young Chicago Authors and founder of Louder Than A Bomb: The Chicago Youth Poetry Festival. Tasha is a rising Chicago artist and YCA album since she was 15-years old. Jamila Wood is a critiically acclaimed singer, songwriter and poet. Woods is a YCA mentor and alum.

"VFAC Release 004" is currently available for pre-order for $20.00 at VinylForACause.com."
