Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 19, 2006 -–
Give mom the full spa treatment this Mother’s Day by downloading free songs from Katherine Schell, a rising artist widely played in spas and clubs nationwide. Through Mother’s Day (May 14), Katherine Schell is offering free MP3 downloads of three songs – Rest Assured, Emptier Streets and Come To Me – available at http://www.walkersands.com/mothersday. These songs are featured on her recently launched debut CD “Emptier Streets.”
"I have a great relationship with my mom, and I thought this would be the perfect way to do something thoughtful for mothers everywhere,” said Schell, who’s also a student at Loyola University majoring in music and philosophy. “I wrote these songs while I was growing up, and they hold a special place in my heart. I don’t know how I would have gotten through some tough times without my mom – she’s my everything.”
Schell, 21, a piano student since kindergarten, turned to writing and performing songs while in high school to help cope with the news that her younger brother was diagnosed with leukemia. Her song writing resulted in “Emptier Streets,” an eclectic blend of indie pop and chamber rock. The songs are inspirational, straight-from-the-heart and full of meaning. Her music is currently featured at more than 500 salons and spas across the country.
Schell’s generous Mother’s Day gift idea is characteristic of her giving way. Since her family’s brush with a serious illness, Schell has dedicated herself to supporting various charities through ticket proceeds and benefit concerts. Later this month, she’ll be helping to raise money, awareness and hair-clippings for Locks of Love, a nonprofit organization that provides hairpieces to children suffering from long-term medical hair loss.
“Emptier Streets,” was released in March 2006 and is available for purchase at select Tower Records and Best Buy stores nationwide. The full-length album is also available on iTunes. For more information on Katherine Schell, visit her website at http://www.katherineschell.com.
