Singer/songwriter Mike Killeen announced the release of his next album. Produced in Nashville at Cartoon Moon Recording Studio by Ken Coomer, the nine song collection is Killeen’s fifth studio album. Wilco and Uncle Tupelo fans may recognize Coomer as those groups’ bad ass drummer. Still wielding the sticks with a variety of touring artists, this three time Grammy-nominated producer has been working with the likes of Al Green and Stax’s great William Bell. Killeen is set to release his album on May 10, 2019 at the famed Eddie’s Attic venue in Decatur, Georgia.
Atlanta-based Americana folk artist, Mike Killeen’s title track Poverty is Real, is featured with those from Patti Smith and Ziggy Marley in this introspective and fascinating view of philanthropy in the United States. Director Salvatore Alaimo interviews citizens, volunteers, and non-profit leaders to uncover the lack of knowledge of what philanthropy is in our communities, and how anyone can be involved.
An introduction to the video can be seen on YouTube at “What is Philanthropy?” documentary trailer.
The film has been touring the United States, accompanied by the director. A free screening of the film is followed by a panel discussion, hosted by the United Way of Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia, November 3rd, 2015 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Loudermilk Center.
CDs of the album Poverty is Real are available at the Saturn 5 Store, Amazon.com with digital downloads at iTunes and streaming on Spotify.
