This project is 100% FOR CHARITY! And this page is here to promote, and help in the making of the album that is all about paying homage to one of the greatest musicians alive- Helios Creed! In honor of the several decades of amazing, and monumentally influential music he has given us, we are going to produce a full length (or, more likely, a double-length) "Helios Creed Tribute" album (actual title undetermined as yet). This release will include various artists' renditions of his songs, ultimately to be available for purchase (with ALL PROCEEDS GOING TO CHARITY). The release date is up in the air at this point in order that everyone who would like to participate will have ample time to do so (don't worry, we're aiming for the release ASAP, but rather than rush things, we want this to be THE best tribute album EVER! It IS Helios we're talking about here...). And just to let everyone know, the revered Steven Cerio will be donating his incredible talent towards the artwork/graphics of this release! As I said, we're gung-ho on making this one hell of an album! :-)
WE ARE STILL OPEN TO SUBMISSIONS!!! If you/your band likes Helios Creed and would like to cover one of his songs, we want to hear from you! Any genre is welcome, as we think diversity can only help make this project more interesting. Get creative! Just please be sure to keep in mind that this is a HELIOS tribute, NOT a Chrome tribute. There have already been several Chrome tribute albums released but, believe it or not, none that are solely inclusive of Helios' solo material so, please, keep it purely Helios! You'll certainly have a large enough library to choose from.
Of course we cannot 100% guarantee that every song submitted will be used in the final release, but we will definitely have EVERY song submitted available for digital download.. We are VERY grateful for EVERY submission! :-) When submitting your song, remember that production quality will likely be a key factor when it comes to who we choose to be on the DOUBLE vinyl release. We love the lo-fi sound and don't want to discourage anyone because good music is good music, regardless of the recording quality but, at the same time, we do want this to end up being a top-notch product... Because this page is here to make everyone aware of the tribute album as well as to give sneak previews of the wonderful songs that will likely make up the album, we won't be putting any of Helios Creed's songs on the music player, but please check out some of his original songs online on his several myspace pages, as well as sites like youtube, facebook, Reverbnation, etc.. We encourage anyone and everyone to be a part of this; if you like Helios Creed, then we want to meet you. And if you have never heard of Helios Creed before now, then we DEFINITELY want to meet you! Because Perhaps we can help introduce you to some of the finest, coolest (and otherwise indescribable) music on the planet, and possibly the universe. There is no one too famous, nobody too unknown, and certainly no one too "infamous" to participate here (All-Star-Supergroups welcome and encouraged!)...whether you are interested in contributing musically or simply by being a friend and supporting us, we want you to know in advance we appreciate it. Remember, this is for charity not for profit- we just want to have fun with this, and we want you to as well. For information regarding song submissions, please refer to our blog. Any additional questions- PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT HELIOS! He is a very busy person, and won't be able to help you with anything regarding the tribute- however, I can, and will be glad to. You can contact me anytime, right here, or to firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd prefer. :-) *IMPORTANT NOTE*: ..If you are considering submitting a song please, CONTACT US BEFORE DOING SO! Let us know what you have in mind. Although Helios has a seemingly infinite library of music, there are some favorites that lots of people want to cover, and though we'll likely make all submissions available for digital download, we are aiming for NO DUPLICATES on the official, final release of the album. We respect and admire all that it takes to get together and record music, and want to make sure your time and talent is spent wisely, and that your submission has the best chance possible to make it to the final release. to participate!). So that's the low down. We're really excited about this, and hope you are too. Thank you for your interest- and please, share this link with your music-loving friends! :-)
