The digital compilation is available at http://utechfamilybenefit.bandcamp.com

Kim Utech lost her battle against breast cancer on July 1, 2015. She leaves behind her husband Keith and their two children, 12-year-old son Jackson, and 9-year-old daughter, Piper. Keith’s sister-in-law, Michelle Kubler Utech, created a GoFundMe page to raise funds to assist Keith with living expenses while he takes time off to be with their children and to help with the expenses incurred while Kim was receiving treatment.

This compilation, assembled by friends and supporters of Utech Records, contains forty-one tracks worth of exclusive material?some previously unreleased, some recorded live, some created specifically for this release?with a runtime of nearly 4 ? hours.

100% of the proceeds (after Bandcamp and PayPal take their cuts) will be donated to the Utech Family Fund.
