 On the one year anniversary of Chris Cornell's passing, a tribute album made up of fan covers has been released through Bandcamp, and everyone who buys the album will be paying it forward.

All proceeds from Thank You: A Tribute to Chris Cornell will go to the Chris Cornell Music Therapy Program at Childhaven in Seattle. This amazing program was established in his memory to create a safe and nurturing environment where children who have experienced trauma, abuse or neglect can find appropriate ways to express themselves, learn skills for coping with emotions resulting from adverse experiences, and benefit from the overall power of music. 

 

This ten-track project began through the Soundgarden Reddit community, with solo artists, bands and fans collectively paying tribute to the life and legacy of Chris Cornell through the music of Audioslave, Soundgarden and Cornell's solo work. Hesher Cats from Seattle and The Couldn't Care Less from the United Kingdom are two of the contributing artists, and we appreciate everyone's work in bringing this tribute album to life. The collective efforts are moving and deeply respected on so many levels. 

 

Thank you for supporting these creative efforts, Rockaholics. A truly beautiful way to honor and remember Chris Cornell.
