Eric Knight is featured on the New 'Give to the Gulf, Vol. 2' Collection available on iTunes. Raises Money for Families of Gulf Coast Oil Spill Disaster

Give To The Gulf™ grassroots effort continues to raise money one song at a time with release of 'Give To The Gulf, Vol. 2,' a collection of 14 original songs now available on iTunes. Additionally, Give To The Gulf is now actively seeking new artists for 'Give To The Gulf, Vol. 3.


Musicians and entrepreneurs have come together for the second time in just two months to help the victims of the Gulf Coast oil spill. Give To The Gulf™ continues its effort to raise money one song at a time through 'Give To The Gulf, Vol. 2,' a collection of 14 original songs now available on iTunes.

'Give To The Gulf, Vol. 2' includes songs from artists from all over America, and spans a wide range of music styles and genres ranging from Cajun blues to acoustic folk to rock to alternative.

“Give To The Gulf is an incredible opportunity for artists to gain worldwide exposure while helping to make a difference in the lives and communities of the Gulf Coast region,” said Eric Knight, one of the originators of this fund-raising initiative. “This project represents a new model in charitable giving where making a financial contribution is as easy as sharing music and downloading a song.”

Give To The Gulf is a grassroots effort conceived by Knight, a musician, inventor, entrepreneur, and founder of Remarkable Technologies, Inc. Working together with musicians Paul Lombardo and Tom Russo of L&R Productions Inc., and audio engineer Mike Sokol of JMS Productions Inc., the team developed the online model for the Give To The Gulf Web portal, collaborated with musicians from around the country, and established relationships with corporate partners including Apple iTunes,, and the United Way.

When visitors download Give To The Gulf music through iTunes, 100 percent of the monies that musicians would normally receive go directly to the United Way Gulf Recovery Fund. This fund provides emergency assistance, such as help with food, rent, and utilities, and supports long-term recovery efforts to rebuild lives through educational, financial, and health-related programs.
Musicians submit their music through the Web portal. While they do not receive any proceeds from the sale of their music, they gain free broad exposure while retaining all ownership and copyrights to their music -- as well as the opportunity to directly help families and communities of the Gulf Coast.

“We are hitting our stride in building Give To The Gulf. Volume 1 got us off to a terrific start. Volume 2 continues the momentum, and we’re already working on Volume 3,” says Mike Sokol, the lead sound engineer behind Give To The Gulf. “The songs in this collection are infectious. I’m amazed at the depth and breadth of musical talent that have offered up their music for this fine cause. We can’t wait to start the next Volume.”

As mentioned by Sokol, 'Give to the Gulf, Vol. 3' is already in the works. The team is currently looking for additional artists to contribute original songs to help support the project. Artists interested in submitting work for consideration should visit

Give To The Gulf is an all-volunteer effort. Partners who have donated their time and talents to launch and support this campaign include: Remarkable Technologies, L&R Productions, JMS Productions, TuneCore, Parkinson Design, Video2People, and MAD Communications.

Entertainment entities Oz City and Symbiotic Nation unite to present Eric Knight, Hopkinson, Ignacio Val and Steve Cooke at City Of Nations

Entertainment entities Oz City and Symbiotic Nation unite to present Eric Knight, Hopkinson, Ignacio Val and Steve Cooke at the Viper Room in West Hollywood September 8 for international event City Of Nations.


Los Angeles, August 23, 2010 – Entertainment organizations Oz City and Symbiotic Nation have joined forces to present the international event City Of Nations featuring four artists whose musical styles embody what’s current in the world of modern music: Eric Knight (USA), Hopkinson (Australia), Ignacio Val (Bolivia) and Steve Cooke (United Kingdom) will perform live on Wednesday September 8 at the world famous Viper Room (8852 W. Sunset Blvd. West Hollywood, CA 90069) in West Hollywood. The show is $7, and members of the public 21 years and older are encouraged to attend.

City Of Nations’ showcases the best international and emerging artists in Los Angeles and brings the global entertainment industry together under one roof. Global partners CrowdWorkz & Persistent Management are proud supporters of this event, as well as the world famous Viper Room.

Eric Knight has taken the contemporary appropriate “do-it-yourself” attitude to a whole new level. Opening for acts including KISS, Dave Matthews Band, Aerosmith and Kid Rock, Knight has worked tirelessly to introduce his original music to the masses. In December 2008, he walked away with Outstanding Male Solo Artist bragging rights at the Rockies Awards in Hollywood. Dressed to kill in a sharp suit and tie, he offers a decidedly unbridled take on rock that remains tastefully aware of rock and roll’s pioneers but determined to redefine it even as he picks up the torch. Knight is currently working on his third album, Delusions of Grandeur, slated for release later this year.

Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Hopkinson spent many years crossing the Pacific Ocean between Australia and America, suitcase in hand, writing and performing his music, before eventually relocating to Los Angeles in 2006. "I came to America not really knowing who I was, but in time I began to find all the missing pieces, says Hopkinson. “Strangers To Ourselves is a story of self discovery that hopefully many people will relate to." Hopkinson's influences are worlds apart. Classically trained from the age of nine, he started a grunge/rock band in high school, eventually finding his voice in the modern pop and rock sound, with much loved bands like U2, Pearl Jam, Live, Travis, Cold Play, Portishead, Train, and Crowded House. His album, Strangers To Ourselves, was co-written and produced with George Merrill, best known for writing Whitney Houston’s hit songs I Wanna Dance With Somebody and How Will I know.

Bolivian export Ignacio Val made his initial mark upon the public’s consciousness when he joined legendary Franco De Vita on tour throughout South America to duet on one of Franco's greatest hits, “Si La Ves.” Since then, Val has played throughout Southern California in key venues including The Whisky a Go Go, The Temple Bar, The Gig, The Rumba Room, B.B King’s, The Joint and The Good Hurt, among others. 2010 has already been an incredible year for the rising star, who has made multiple TV appearances on Univision’s Primera Edicion and Tu Estilo. Performing also with international superstars such as David Bisbal and Alejandra Guzman. Ignacio’s supercharged shows, songs and charisma combine to cultivate a Latin superstar-in-the-making.

Hollywood Music and Media award winner Steve Cooke is currently running the Hollywood circuit, bringing down the house at legendary venues. At the beginning of his career Steve moved to London where he formed the band Endever, supported by an all-star band “The Dolphins,” which included members of Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Brand X and later guitar legend Alvin Lee of Ten Years After. He’s also played principle characters in UK hit musicals such as Broadway’s, Hair, Godspell, Jesus Christ Superstar and The Who’s Tommy. Over the last few years Steve has focused on his own music and songwriting. In 08 Steve rocked Carlos Santana’s after-party in Germany!


City Of Nations is an international organization who’s mission is to feature and unite emerging artists from various nations in order to create a global awareness of talent from around the world.
