Mose Allison’s singular style – a unique blend of jazz and blues, his incisive humor, and knack for distilling deep themes into simple potent lyrics made him a major influence on a generation of musicians. It didn’t take much convincing for the producers to bring a host of top artists onboard, including Elvis Costello, Iggy Pop, Fiona Apple, Tah Mahal, Ben Harper, Frank Black, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browneand more. Each artist chose a favorite Mose Allison song to interpret.

The lead track to the announce of “If You’re Going To The City: A Sweet Relief Tribute to Mose Allison” – All Mose Allison covers, featuring Fiona Apple, Jackson Browne, Iggy Pop, Elvis Costello, Chrissie Hynde, Ben Harper, Frank Black, Bonnie Raitt and more. – Missing Piece PR is hired for press, targeting National radio, newspaper, print, magazines, online and television.

Proceeds of this release go to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, a nonprofit charity that maintains a financial fund from which professional musicians can draw when in need of medical care or financial needs. Initially intended as a one-time CD launch benefit for (then wife of The Jayhawks founder Mark Olson) Victoria Williams, Sweet Relief has evolved into a charity organization that relies on donations from artists and the public as a general fund to all professional musicians in need. The fund provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians who are struggling with their finances while facing illness, disability, or age-related problems.
