I can't quite remember when or how I came up with the idea of making a folk punk compilation. But once I had the idea in my mind, I knew I wanted to do it. And I knew I wanted it to be awesome. And I'm not disappointed in the least with this group of songs. There's a lot of great songwriting on display, and I hope that you'll find at least one or two new favorite artists. I highly recommend everyone featured here.
Outside of just having lots of quality tunes, I also wanted to make it as easy as possible to find info on the artists if you like what you hear. So if you want to know more, you can either click "Info" next to any track on this page, read the included PDF liner notes, or visit folk-o-rama.tumblr.com/artists
. In all of these places you will find links to where you can get more of their music or follow them online to find out about shows and other cool things.
And remember, if you like what you hear, support the artist! Buy their music, catch a show, order a t-shirt, tattoo their lyrics on your body. Whatever.
