Indie Folk Artist Releases Cancer Tribute

After working on his musical tribute for nearly two years, indie folk artist Robert Rossi has finally completed his much-anticipated album, Weathervane. The 13-song compilation will make its debut at the famed Rockwood Music Hall on Saturday, May 14, 2016.

The Weathervane CD is written largely from his mother’s perspective and is part of a larger cancer awareness project by the same name. The goal of the New York-based singer’s project is to commemorate his mother’s life after losing her battle to metastasized breast cancer all while raising global cancer awareness. The ultimate mission of the Weathervane project is to donate proceeds to organizations devoted to cancer research. Weathervane’s aims are significant as the Centers for Disease Control reports that 19.3 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed worldwide each year by 2025.

To hear live tracks from the Weathervane album with accompaniment by cellist Maureen Murray and drummer Rhakeim Williams plan to attend the CD release at:

Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 3
185 Orchard Street
New York, NY 10002
