Songwriter and 826 Valencia Sunday tutor Devon Reed has married these two interests and released a compilation album of songs he’s written, performed by talented bands like Bowerbirds, Saturday Looks Good to Me, Fruit Bats and Maps & Atlases, to benefit 826 Valencia. The resulting album, You Be My Heart, is a tender tribute to Reed’s dedication to 826 Valencia.
You Be My Heart has received lots of press, most notably on Pitchfork.com.
The album is now available, just in time for your winter holidays, and benefits the writing and tutoring programs that 826 Valencia offers to San Francisco public school students.
Purchase the entire album or mp3s at youbemyheart.com.
