Local boys Switchfoot took home a Grammy for Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album for "Hello Hurricane."
Patagonia, the apparel company known for its environmentally friendly ways, teamed up with top artists this week to form a music collective benefitting environmental organizations.
Among the big names participating are two bands with local ties: Switchfoot and Pearl Jam. It’s not a surprise Switchfoot is on board -- the recent Grammy winners have been involved in numerous humanitarian causes in San Diego, including establishing the Switchfoot Bro-Am Surf Contest, a benefit and concert that raises money for homeless kids in San Diego.
Exclusive tracks will be sold for $.99 each, with net proceeds going to environmental organizations of the musicians’ choice. The Patagonia Music Collective launched March 1. Check it out here.
