Local Art Wanted

To all Asheville artists:

For our current CD project Lay Your Burden Down, we’re looking for a hi-res image of your art: photography, sculpture, painting, drawing – whatever!
We’re The Wilhelm Brothers, an Asheville-based band that plays Indie Folk Rock which is infectious and insightful. You may have seen us out busking at Pack Square or playing in front of Carmel’s. Or at one of our shows at Anam Cara, the LAB, Havana’s, Root Bar #1 or the Westville Pub.You’re invited to submit a hi-res image of your artwork that fits the storyline or inspiration of the title song “Lay Your Burden Down” of our album. Here’s a live recording of it on youtube:

Everything else about the CD you’ll find out.

Any of your ideas are welcome to be submitted until March 9th, 2013, please send it/them to thewilhelmbrothers.com@outlook.com. We’ll select and let you know by March 13th.

While there will be no monetary compensation at this time, here’s how we think you’ll benefit from it:

  • Expose your name and art on 1,000 CD’s, or more when sales demand it
  • Physical as well as digital distribution, where your name and webpresence will be seen
  • Regional, national and worldwide visibility
  • You can exhibit at our CD-release party on May 3rd, 2013
  • We’ll play music at an Open-Studio-event of yours
  • Local Art helps Local Music, and vice versa
