Digital album released by Baton Rouge recording artists affected by Aug. flood

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Great Baton Rouge Flood of 2016 is a digital album, created by talented Baton Rouge artists who were directly and indirectly affected by the "storm with no name" in August.

Henry Turner Jr. with Hot City Digital Records is the executive producer of the album, which is available at all leading digital retailers, streaming services, and radio networks.

The album features a wide range of original music, including blues, rock, dance songs, love songs, R&B, soul, rockabilly, and rap. The artists are widely recognized as favorites of the Capital City.

 "The music scene in Baton Rouge is very alive and vibrant. Nothing can stop it or our impressive talent. It is unfortunate that it takes a catastrophe to introduce our talented performers into the global marketplace. Everyone was eager to participate and show the world that we still are all here, the show continues, and we are survivors, not victims," said Turner.

Artists featured on the album include:

  • Stepchild
  • April "Sexy Rod" Jackson
  • Billy Averett
  • Dusty Lightfoot Cashio
  • Anita Raze Averett
  • Nukie Miller
  • Ras Wayne Vicks
  • D-Whit
  • Lee Tyme
  • Champagne
  • Henry Turner Jr. & Flavor
