It is unbelievably sad that Jason Molina died on Saturday 16th March, 2013. Our thoughts and sympathy go out to his family, friends and fans. What an unbelievably significant loss to the world, and to music.
The benefit album is still available, with all the proceeds will go to the Molina family to carry on paying off Jason’s medical bills or, when unnecessary, as a memorial gift. Thank you for your support.
We have raised almost $900 for Jason’s medical fund! Thank you so much to everyone who helped and took part and bought the benefit record!
With the concert now over, and an initial $500 donated, we are still raising money for Jason’s medical fund with our album including the Molina songs the artists performed at the benefit gig, and some more wonderful tracks by some musicians who couldn’t play.
All profits will go to the Jason Molina Medical Fund

Due to illness, Jason has been unable to perform, write or record any music since 2009. His health issues also meant he accrued large medical bills which he and his family have struggled to pay. The proceeds of both the concert and the album are for Jason’s medical fund. It’s time to give something back to a wonderful musician who has given so much to his listeners. The main aim is, of course, to raise as much money for Jason’s medical fund as possible, but also to bring his need for help to as wider audience as possible and to re- introduce his music to his fans as well as new fans through the artists who are influenced by him and love his music.
Here is some more information on why his family have set up a fund for his medical bills.
You can donate directly as well. Details can be found in the link above.
I have received various stories from friends, associates, and fellow musicians regarding Jason’s health issues. A very touching account can be found here.
The concert and benefit will also touch on bringing issues surrounding alcohol and drug use – something which affects so many people in a detrimental way and something which needs proper understanding – to the fore.
Support music with music. Everyone involved, the musicians, the venue, the promoters, PR,and designers are all involved voluntarily and have their own connection to Jason either having worked with him, or being influenced, or simply appreciative of his music.
