In solidarity with the Moral Monday peaceful protest movement, a new alliance,
The North Carolina Music Love Army, has emerged. Comprised of many notable North Carolina-based musicians, the NCMLA was founded in late June of 2013 by artists Caitlin Cary (of Raleigh) and Jon Lindsay (of Charlotte). The two have assembled an all-star roster to create a recording compilation of original protest songs contributed by its members, with a forthcoming large-scale concert announcement to follow. The organization describes themselves as a united force composed of musicians set to battle against the regressive legislation of the current administration. All proceeds from NCMLA activity will go to the NAACP, Progress NC, and Planned Parenthood.
The following notable artists already have committed to the project: Stu Mclamb/The Love Language, Django Haskins/The Old Ceremony, Eddie Walker, BJ Barham/American Aquarium, Birds and Arrows, and many more.
