Olive Grove Records release what is the label’s first ever Christmas compilation, snappily entitled ‘From Olive Us To Olive You’.
Featuring an array of original songs from the Glasgow imprint’s roster, the festive charity album features 11 tunes from the likes of TeenCanteen / Ette’s Carla J. Easton, who joins up with former Vaseline Eugene Kelly, as well as the likes of Randolph’s Leap, Henry & Fleetwood (De Rosas’s Martin, and Gillian, respectively), and the State Broadcasters, plus new signings Pocket Knife, Jo Mango, The Son(s), Campfires In Winter, and Woodenbox.
All the profits from the release will be donated to CDH UK, a UK charity who support and advise families who are affected by Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) – a cause dear to the heart of label founder Lloyd Meredith, whose son Luke was born with CDH three years ago. Sadly babies who suffer from the condition are not always as lucky as Luke, so the charity is an important one.
