Ripple Music CEO Todd Severin has stepped in to help Nebula bassist Tom Davies who has been diagnosed with Leukemia and is in need of support in his battle with cancer. Nebula Ripples is a compilation album just released, and all proceeds will be donated directly to Tom.
“Back in January, I ended up in the ER with kidney stones,” Tom said, “which was followed by viral pneumonia and Bell’s Palsy and eventually led to me being diagnosed with a rare form of high-risk Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
“As it’s a very complex form, I’ve had one round of intense chemotherapy so far and am facing many more treatments and hospital visits for the fight of my life. On a positive note, my spirit is strong and has been strengthened by the overwhelming and incredible outpouring of support from the community.”
Although Nebula had not previously recorded with Ripple Music, everyone in the stoner rock scene knows of their powerful music. When Todd heard of Tom’s fight ahead, he reached out, wanting to do anything Ripple could do to support him.
Todd asked Tom which Ripple bands he loved playing with, and his response formed the basis of this compilation. Tom has also contributed one of his own unreleased tracks to kick the compilation into gear, which features lead guitar work from Joe Hoare of Orange Goblin. Also included is a special sneak preview track from the upcoming album by Kind.
