Paula Nelson joins other Texas artists on this year’s Holiday HAMM Jam Vol. 2, the second year for a fundraising album, to benefit Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM) .
The Holiday HAAM Jam team is very excited to announce final selections for the 2012 Holiday HAAM Jam album. Response to the call for submissions was excellent, and the quality, talent and heart evident in the musicians’ submissions made narrowing the number of songs to one album quite challenging.
This year, intending to more than double the $10,000 raised through last year’s album sales, the HAAM team has chosen the strongest 18 tracks from the hundreds that were submitted, constituting a nice blend of standard favorites and new classics.
The artists are currently recording their tracks with producer Mark Addison at The Arie recording studio to have them ready in time for the Nov. 20 release date — just in time for holiday shopping for the hard-to-please Texas music lover. There will also be an album release party at Antone’s on Dec. 12, featuring live performances from many of the artists on the album.
