I am very happy to announce volume 1 in a series of 5 song "mixtapes" from GM4A. The series is called Hey! Listen! and asks you to do just that! The goal of these mixtapes is to introduce you to bands, musicians, and artists who you may have never discovered otherwise. These are amazing folks who deserve recognition and I hope to help them out with that the best I can from this humble corner of the internet. Each volume will include five bands as well as an up and coming artist providing the cover art. Our first collection includes songs from seal of quality, Chiptots, Lumine Hall, Alex Atchley, and Tanuki Suit Riot, and the amazing cover is brought to us by Sasha Palacio.

About the artwork:
The woman on the cover is named Haiku, Sasha gives this story about her
"Haiku's Story: Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, Haiku is a High School senior, gamer, anime fan, and artist. Her Father is a wealthy art collector and once famous Artist himself before his stroke. Her Mother is a beautiful Poet and had named Haiku after the beautiful Japanese form of poetry. Haiku's name held beauty, strength, and deep meaning. Haiku does have a deeper meaning, little does she know, she's the reincarnation of the famous High Priestess that guards the gates to Heaven."
