Produced by Gigi Love and Vast Horizons Music, Inc. Listen to the Red Rock is a beautiful compilation of songs inspired by the wild and expansive landscape of Utah’s Red Rock wilderness region.
The collection brings together a variety of award-winning folk, folk-rock, and bluegrass artists who are in passionate support of the passage of America's Red Rock Wilderness Act (ARRWA). This Act, now in Congress, would set aside 8 million plus acres, thus protecting and keeping a viable corridor open to biodiversity and species connectivity, as well as prohibiting mining, drilling, and development.
Listen to the Red Rock has a wonderful line-up of musicians who are contributing their talents to this cause, including Anke Summerhill, Cosy Sheridan, Gigi Love, Kate MacLeod, Leraine Horstmanshoff, Marv Hamilton, Meander Cat, Pixie and The Partygrass Boys, Tyler Grant, and Walkin' Jim Stoltz. Topics range from songs that exalt the beauty and majesty of these lands to poignant, heartfelt reminders of how cheaply we give away our greatest treasure, and songs about the fight to preserve them amidst great pressures. The Lead-off track "Dancing with the Beauty" by Gigi Love, which emphasizes the importance of action to preserve these lands, was well received as an advanced single and reached #13 on the Folk Alliance International chart for May of 2022.
Love and the participating artists aim to bring awareness to the decades-long campaign to protect this incomparable land by giving it a wilderness designation. In a first-of-its-kind act, the Navajo Nation has endorsed this congressional bill. Love's goal is to alert listeners to the importance of protecting these lands and to motivate them to reach out to their senators and representatives in support of this important legislation.
The “Call to Action” is a motivating point of this album, Love asks listeners and fans to please reach out to Congress via her website homepage at www.gigilove.com and text or email from the link provided. America’s Red Rock Wilderness Act is currently in Congress and is gaining momentum. By sharing this compilation of songs donated from artists embracing this cause, our vision is that listeners will feel inspired by our message and will petition their senators and representatives nationwide to support this bill. Preserving this land and more, for the future generations, will help to mitigate climate change and is of utmost importance to the vibrancy, diversity and beauty of our global existence.
