Soundwaves Art: Icons of Music 2016 Fundraiser - Artwork Signed by Over 20 Artists Including: Roger Waters, Kings of Leon, Queen, ABBA, Sam Smith, Duran Duran


Soundwaves Art: Icons of Music 2016 Fundraiser features limited edition artwork signed by over 20 artists including: Roger Waters, Kings of Leon, Queen, ABBA, Sam Smith, Duran Duran, and Bon Jovi. Proceeds of the art sale benefit MusicCorp, War Child, Hope & Homes for Children, and Music Rising.

Austin, TX, November 19, 2016 --(PR.com)-- Soundwaves Art Foundation announces the launch of the Icons of Music 2016 Fundraiser. The online event is the largest fundraiser to date presented by Soundwaves Art Foundation, with over 23 unique pieces of limited edition artwork autographed by some of music’s biggest acts, designed by renowned artist Tim Wakefield. The proceeds from the sale of the artwork will benefit charities selected by the collaborating music icons, including MusiCorps, War Child, Hope & Homes for Children, and Music Rising. Generosity.com, the non-profit sister to Indiegogo, hosts the campaign with a crowd-funding goal of $50,000.

Wakefield’s artwork has been described as a “truly unique visual expression of sound.” His creations begin by digitally manipulating, shaping, and coloring sound waves generated from a studio recording of a song. The result is a visually stunning representation of the audio, taking on an entirely new art form.

Participating artists include: Roger Waters, Mark Knopfler, Queen, ABBA, Sam Smith, Jason Isbell, Hunter Hayes, New Order, Elbow, Ellie Goulding, The Black Keys, The Killers, Alt-J, The Cure, Steve Winwood, Stereophonics, Bee Gees, Kings of Leon, Duran Duran, Bon Jovi, Brian Wilson, Joy Division, Bryan Ferry, Royal Blood, and Steve Winwood.

Founded by Tim Wakefield, Soundwaves Art Foundation has raised funds around the world for music-related charities. “I am so excited for this year’s fundraiser. The list of artists involved is spectacular, and I am so proud to have been able to work with them to create these unique pieces,” Wakefield states. “While the creative process is always special for me, what’s really near and dear to my heart is the philanthropic side of this. The proceeds from the sale of the artwork will benefit some great charities chosen by the collaborating icons and myself; it’s an honor to know that every piece purchased will go to a great cause.”

Music Rising, Hope & Homes for Children, War Child, and MusiCorps are the four charities currently benefiting from the fundraiser.

MusiCorps aims to help injured veterans in their recovery through the power of music.

War Child works to alleviate the suffering of innocent children affected by conflict around the world.

Hope & Homes for children aims to rehouse children in orphanages across the globe.
Music Rising provides replacement instruments to musicians and schools after natural disasters, most recently the Louisiana flooding.
