The Indies is proud to present another installment of Playing For Change.
The message below is from our friends at Playing For Change in their own words:
Hello Everyone, we are proud to release the newest song around the world from our upcoming PFC 2 album CD/DVD release!! "Gimme Shelter" is a track we have wanted to record for years and we can finally share it with all of you. This song expresses the urgency we all face to unite together as a planet and offers us wisdom with the words, "War, children, it's just a shot away... Love, sister, it's just a kiss away". It really is that simple. We dedicate this song to all the lost, homeless and forgotten people in this world. It is in the shelter of each other that the people live.Playing For Change - Gimme Shelter

Came across this very soulful artist and songwriter who is part of a group known as Black Dub with the great guitarist/producer extraordinaire Daniel Lanois, drummer Brian Blade and bassist Daryl Johnson. Have heard all sorts of recordings of this song, solo and with a band, and love them all. On her own, Whitley has that "it" thing :) GC
