Listen + Share My Morning Jacket's Cover of "Farewell Transmission".

On March 16, 2013 Jason Molina passed away of natural causes after a longstanding battle with alcohol. Jason's death shook the world of many music-lovin' souls and the music world as a whole. At 39 years old, he left behind a remarkable song catalog and lasting impression on anyone who heard his music with Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co. Starting as a heavy metal bass player from Loraine, Ohio, he became one of the most influential and iconic singer-songwriters in indie music.

In essence, Jason was the "Pied Piper" for the outcasts, the lonely, the heartbroken, and the lost singing in some secret, abstract, yet universal language where everyone understands the deeper meaning of his imagery. Known for tapping into the heart of the working-man's blues, Jason's music is mythical, mystical, and brilliant creating a sound that is eerie and melancholic all the while remaining comfortable. So, it is with this album we would like to honor Jason's music, his memory, and his genius.

The idea for the album came from two music bloggers, April Wolfe of Common Folk Music and Chris Mateer of Uprooted Music Revue. April and Chris came together as a result of their mutual love and respect for Jason's music and united under the mission to heal and keep his memory alive. With substantial help from Rock the Cause, the two bloggers set forth to compile a stunning benefit album that pays tribute to Jason in a personal and cathartic way.

We have gathered a group of artists and musicians who are also Jason's friends, collaborators, band mates, and fans to celebrate his life through song, it seemed fitting to honor Jason's legacy by making this celebration a charitable one.

Rock the Cause Records, a music based nonprofit and record label, will donate a portion of the net proceeds from this album to MusiCares to help provide assistance to artists who are battling chemical dependency, depression, disability and other health related issues.

A portion of net proceeds will also be given to Jason's family to help provide for the loved ones he left behind. For more information on the charitable aspect of this recording, visit
