You may remember a while back MPress Records released a compilation of songs by developing artists called New Arrivals: Vol. One. The disc was (and still is) a charitable effort that funnels its profits to Gulf Coast Hurricane Relief.

Well, one good turn deserves another, and now artist and MPress owner Rachel Sage has announced the release of a second charitable effort, you guessed it, New Arrivals: Vol. Two. The 18-cut set is a winner for everybody as the profits on this one go to the World Hunger Year organization while the CD purchaser gets turned on to lots of good new music.

Representing the L.A.-area on the collection are Rebekah Jordan with “Lovely Life” and Kristy Kruger with “Dark Stranger.” To promote the release, Jordan and Kruger will join Sage, Rob Giles, Rich Price and Todd Carey for a live show at the Hard Rock Café on May 21.

There’s also a food drive organized around the show, so if you go, take a couple cans of food to donate. For a complete list of the New Arrivals talent, go to, and to find out more about the work being done by the World Hunger Year organization, visit
