Hockley Hustle Have Released An Album Full of Notts' Collaborations to Raise Money for Emmanuel House

12 April 21 words: LeftLion

The album includes contributions from not only musicians, but local poets and artists too...

Hockley Hustle has announced an album of collaborations featuring the cream of Notts’ music talent and emerging artists, the proceeds of which will go to homeless support charity Emmanuel House. The result of a successful Arts Council funding bid, each of the ten tracks on the album will be available to purchase exclusively from Bandcamp with an option to make additional donations to Emmanuel House, with the full digital album being available later in the year. 

Denis Tully, CEO at Emmanuel House, said: “We are thrilled to be involved in such an exciting project and would like to thank Hockley Hustle for choosing Emmanuel House again. We are so lucky to be connected with Nottingham’s creative community.”

The first track sees rapper and poet Ty Healy team up with soul songstress Harleighblu, beginning a strong line-up of musical talent that also includes Do Nothing, Megatrain, Rob Green, Natalie Duncan, Bru-C, Jah Digga and spoken word poet Bridie Squires. 

Tommy Farmyard, festival director, added: “Not only will this Album of Collaborations help a charity that works tirelessly across the city to support the homeless community, it also funnels money to artists right now and gives them an opportunity to connect and work together. We’re excited to see what they create!”

Four local artists  – Honey Williams, Emily Catherine, Soz Mate and Jasmin Issaka – have also collaborated to design the different elements of the cover art, each creating a different quarter of a map of Nottinghamshire.

Hockley Hustle has also announced that the festival will be back this year on Sunday 24 October. Announcements are coming soon on the line-up as well as a number of other live events throughout the year to look out for.
