When I heard that SteveSongs was releasing a free holiday single called "Our World," I immediately thought (and hoped) that it would be a cover of the song from EMMET OTTER'S JUGBAND CHRISTMAS. It is not... but it's still worth getting! SteveSongs' "Our World" is available as a Free Download now through December 31 via this link.
To celebrate the holiday season, ALEX & THE KALEIDOSCOPE BAND are offering up a FREE DOWNLOAD of their song "Snow Day." Taken from their 2006 album, KALEIDOSCOPE SONGS: TWO (available on iTunes), "Snow Day" can be streamed or downloaded through the Soundcloud widget below through December 31, 2012.
In the spirit of giving for the holiday season, BARI KORAL is giving listeners a Free Download of her seasonal song, "Gingerbread Man" now through December 31. The track comes from the award-winning album, ANNA AND THE CUPCAKES, that was released by the Bari Koral Family Band earlier this year. Grab the download via the Soundcloud player below...
DIRGE WITHIN have had an interesting, yet tumultuous year. Following a lineup shift early-on that found them recording their new album, THERE WILL BE BLOOD with a new guitarist (Chuck Wepfer) and fill-in bassist (Jeff Paulick of LAZARUS A.D.), the album saw release on Rocket Science Ventures (get it on iTunes) accompanied by a lyric video for the track "For My Enemies." That lyric video was cut by yours truly, right here at Rock Father HQ in-between trips to the park and parent-tot playtime.
I always hear a lot of people griping about Kickstarter projects that never come to fruition, so it's always cool to see the final result of a project done good.

Successfully funded via Kickstarter this past June, MAKE A DISCOVERY exceeded it's $3,000 goal, and has now been released as a 100% Free Download for all to enjoy.
