Seattle, WA - Children’s Music Fund, Inc. a 501 (c) (3) not for profit corporation, today announced that the entire library of songs from the “Christmas in the Northwest” CD series is now available in Apple’s iTunes Store.
The Christmas in the Northwest CDs, which first hit music stores in 1985, feature singers and songwriters from the Pacific Northwest performing contemporary Christmas songs. The artists donate the use of their recordings and in most cases their publishing royalties, to help raise money and awareness for the uncompensated care fund at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
Today, there are 11 Christmas in the Northwest CDs to choose from. A full listing of the CDs and participating artists can be found at www.christmasinthenorthwest.com/listen-and-buy/
Physical CDs, full CD downloads and individual song downloads are also available via the Christmas in the Northwest website, and on the Christmas in the Northwest Facebook page. Those Christmas in the Northwest music stores are powered by Portland, Oregon based CD Baby.
The concept for the Christmas in the Northwest CD series came to be after Alex Lawson (daughter of Steve and Debbie Lawson) was admitted to Children’s Hospital at the age of 2, suffering from E. coli. The Lawsons were so impressed with the treatment their daughter received, along with the care they received during their family crisis that they wanted to do something in return for the hospital.
The Lawsons then owned Lawson Productions; a Seattle based recording company which later became Bad Animals/Seattle. They enlisted help from an “A” list of the Seattle music world to provide contemporary Christmas music for the first and subsequent CDs.
Artists have included Dave Matthews, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, Kenny G, Steve Miller, David Lanz & Paul Speer, Stacie Orrico, Tickle Tune Typhoon, Tim Noah, and Walt Wagner. The first album launched the hit song “Christmas in the Northwest”, written and sung by Brenda Kutz. That song has become a Northwest classic.
