The Headwaters Project seeks to protect the Northern California Redwood Forests by documenting the most important resource found in the magnificent old groves: inspiration. Matt Eakle, the producer of this album, hiked deep within the Headwaters Forest with a tape recorder, instruments in hand, and musicians in tow. He wanted the world to know that ancient trees are not just lumber and patio decks. By sharing this sonic monument inspired by the wilderness, the musicians on this CD hope to benefit the organizations fighting tremendous odds to save this treasure for future generations. And they hope to inspire you to get involved.
100% of the royalties from this CD are being donated to organizations fighting to preserve the Headwaters Forest.
