Visit the Second Story site at Mp3.com and raise money for the Save the Music Foundation! http://www.mp3.com/secondstory For Immediate Release: Philadelphia-based musical group Second Story is putting its money where its mouth is. Beginning in August, the all-original quintet is donating half of its Payback for Playback earnings from Mp3.com to VH-1's Save the Music Campaign. The members of the band cite the impact their past music educators have had on their development as the prime reason for the commitment. The teachers weve had over the years are among the biggest influences that inspired us to take up music, said Second Story bassist Mark Gollihur, whose own mother is a music teacher in a public high-school. We simply cant stand by and watch as some districts actually cut their music programs altogether. Not coincidentally, both Mark and keyboard player John Lewis are employees of GVOX, a music software company who recently unveiled the revolutionary NotationStation.net, a FREE web-enabled tool for music educators. (http://www.NotationStation.net) Through MP3.coms Payback for Playback promotion, bands earn money based upon the traffic to their hosted sites, total number of downloads, and other related factors. The amount of money Second Story stands to raise depends wholly on the traffic to their Mp3.com site. Unique downloads and plays are tallied daily and figure into their Payback total, which is prominently posted on the Mp3.com website. Each quarter, Mp3.com will cut the band a check for their total, at which point the band will donate half to the Save the Music Foundation. To help increase the Second Story donation, interested parties need only visit the bands site at Mp3.com and listen as many of the bands songs as they wish. There is no cost to the listener, and each daily unique listen adds to the donation.
