Stinson will donate a portion of the net proceeds from the sale of the album to the Timkatec Schools in Haiti. Last summer, Stinson held an on-line auction and raised over $40,000 for the schools, which have housed and provided skilled trade education for abandoned and orphaned youths in the Pétionville district of Port-au-Prince for over ten years. The schools’ fund-raising needs have drastically increased in the wake of the 2010 earthquake, and as a result Stinson remains committed to his on-going effort to raise funds for them.
Stinson, whose career began at the tender age of 13, has spent his entire life thus far making music and touring incessantly, leaving an indelible mark in the world of music and pop culture. After the Replacements stopped playing in 1991, Stinson went on to form his Faces-flavored group Bash & Pop and the more straightforward Perfect. His first solo release, Village Gorilla Head, was released in 2004 receiving praise from the critics and the fans. In 2005, Stinson also scored his first movie (“Catch and Release” with Jennifer Garner) with BT. Stinson is currently helping Soul Asylum put the finishing touches on their upcoming release and continues to tour with the group, as well as with Guns n’ Roses.
