Devastating as they are, the Australian bushfires have brought out the best in people around the nation. Many Australians are doing everything in their power to help out and members of our creative community are no exception. In fact, some of the most successful fundraising for bushfire relief has come from the arts sector. Some artists are dropping new releases with all proceeds going to relief organisations. We thought we would share a few of these new releases with you. Please consider supporting these artists and organisations and enjoy the great tunes while you’re at it!
