Songwriter Dave Tamkin Donates 100% of Online Sales from New Single
to Charity Love Hope Strength
(Boulder, CO) - On June 15th veteran singer songwriter Dave Tamkin releases his third single in three months Love Hope Strength. This song was written to honor all the dedicated and selfless people who have given up a little piece of themselves to support the leading rock and roll cancer foundation http://www.lovehopestrength.org You can pre-order the song today on iTunes and Bandcamp.
To help bring awareness to the Love Hope Strength Foundation, all online sales of Love Hope Strength will be donated to the organization. Dave wrote this song two years ago while losing someone very close to him to cancer. He partnered with singer songwriter Kevin Mileski of Chicago to finish the song as he had recently lost a loved one to cancer as well. Kevin’s vocals can also be found on the track along with Gina Gonzalez who toured internationally with Gary Sinise and The Lt. Dan Band.
This collaboration of the song started over a year ago with award winning, recording engineer and producer Elliot Hunt in Boulder, Colorado. Elliot enlisted the help of lifelong friend Kip Kuepper of Coupe Studios in Boulder to play bass along with world renowned drummer Shawn Pelton. Pelton plays drums in the Saturday Night Live band and has played on several Grammy winning albums. Dave Tamkin also worked on Love Hope Strength with Tim King at Crown Studios in Cedar Rapids, IA, who brought his unique style and instrumentation to the project. Artwork was contributed by Denver’s own magical Matt Dougherty
Love Hope Strength (LHS) is now firmly established as the world’s leading rock and roll cancer foundation. The organization, co-founded by Mike Peters and James Chippendale, was created in 2007 and registered as a charity in 2008. Mike is a 3-time cancer survivor and an internationally acclaimed singer for the Welsh rock band The Alarm. James, a fellow cancer survivor, is a respected insurance executive specializing in the music industry. Together they had the vision that LHS could literally, “Save lives, one concert at a time!”
