          The Madison Made Music Project was a 2007 CD project released by Porchlight Inc. as a help for the Homeless in Madison, WI. As I understand it, the project failed in its purpose due to lack of sales. Porchlight has deleted all information about, and promotion for the CD from their Web site. However, as of 6-12-2009, they still had about 350 CD's left for sale. Contact Katherine Davey, Resource Development Director for prices and availability. The preceding link page shows her E-Mail address, and Porchlight's telephone number is at the bottom of that page.

          Because Porchlight deleted all their information, this page was created and will remain on-line as a permanent record of the CD and the Project.

          Liner Notes Page 6: To fight Homelessness and Poverty in Madison, Wisconsin, more than 150 musical artists submitted songs for a compilation CD. Fifteen artists were chosen for the first Madison Made Music Project. The songs here represent the diversity of Madison music, featuring Roots, Hip-Hop, Rock, Reggae, Jazz and Folk Music.
          [Webmaster's note: A complete list of all 150+ artists and all submitted song titles was never published anywhere, either in print or on-line. Because of this, the other 135+ musical artists who were not chosen for the CD, can never be publicly acknowledged and thanked for their participation in the project.]

          Liner Notes Page 2: With its relatively high salaries and low unemployment rate, most people think of Madison, Wisconsin as an unlikely place to find poverty and homelessness. However, the greater Madison area has experienced a growing disparity between wages and the cost of housing in recent years, resulting in significant economic stress on many households and creating substantial barriers to those who are homeless. Last year, more than 3,400 people in Madison experienced homelessness.
          Porchlight Inc. is a not-for-profit agency that addresses these growing needs by providing emergency shelter, food, employment services, and affordable transitional and permanent housing in the Madison area. Its primary mission is to meet the needs of homeless people through housing and services designed to foster the transition into permanent housing and employment. Porchlight is committed to ensuring that all residents of Madison have a place of shelter, freeing them from the fear and intimidation of life on the streets. Last year, Porchlight programs supported more than 14,000 individuals and families, and provided more than 144,000 nights of shelter. Your purchase of the CD helps to support the ongoing work of Porchlight.
