CheddaREvolution Press Release

February 14, 2018
On the seventh anniversary of the Wisconsin Uprising, here’s a valentine for soon-to-be former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker: Another compilation of protest songs! CheddaREvolution: Songs of Resurgence, will feature new and original protest songs of all styles and genres.
This album is a sequel to the award-winning Cheddar Revolution: Songs of Uprising, a collection of original protest songs inspired by the Wisconsin Uprising that features a wide array of styles by artists primarily from around the state, but also from coast to coast, including Wayne Kramer of The MC5 and Jon Langford of The Mekons and Waco Brothers.
The deadline for submissions is May Day (May 1, 2018). The tentative release date is Labor Day (September 3, 2018). CheddaREvolution: Songs of Resurgence will exist strictly as a mastered, digital download album, with bonus tracks also available for download. All downloads are free!
This is a herald call to Wisconsin musicians to find their collective muse and create new work as the people of Wisconsin rise up to take back our state from Walker’s billionaire puppet masters.
Like Cheddar Revolution: Songs of Uprising, this project is a labor of love by co-producers Sybil Augustine and Fred Schepartz. Augustine is Music Director at WORT Community Radio, Madison, Wisconsin. Schepartz is a fiction writer and Executive Editor of Mobius: The Journal of Social Change.
