The concept of the Rock Back compilation series was born in 2011 when disaster hit Japan and Tom Lugo, owner of Patetico Recordings, acted on his empathy for charitable causes and non-profit organizations by reaching out to the community of artists in his network. They collectively put together a compilation and the profits were donated to relief efforts. The response was overwhelming, with over 100 artists from across the globe joining in the efforts.
What was to be a single CD compilation grew into the 8-disc compilation Rock Back for Japan. The compilation series hit the top 10 Indie Rock releases on Amazon.com’s chart for several weeks, with certain volumes holding the number 1 spot.
Rock Back For Nepal is a three volume compilation, was released by U.S. indie record label Patetico Recordings in 2015, featuring 60 indie artists from around the world that came together to contribute their music in an effort to raise funds for victims of the earthquake disaster in Nepal.
