About this project

Hungry for Music

Hungry for Music is a non-profit organization that supports music education in United States  and abroad by providing quality musical instruments to underserved children with willing instructors and hunger to play.  Since 1994, we have donated over 5,000 musical instruments.  One source of our funding is a series of baseball song collections entitled, Diamond Cuts.  We are seeking funding for the 12th volume and a sampler of the previous eleven volumes.  The funds will help us replicate the CDs, set up an online store, distribute, and adequately promote the Diamond Cuts CDs and Hungry for Music's misson.  The proceeds will purchase instrument for our music instrument donation program.

The Diamond Cuts Collection

Since 1997, almost 300 baseball songs have been released on the Diamond Cuts series.  It has been featured in the New York Times, National Public Radio's Morning Edition, and Bob Edwards' XM Radio Show.  

Diamond Cuts, Volume 12:  It Ain't Over Til It's Over & Sampler

Please help us continue this great series that honors baseball's history in song and helps put instruments into the hands of kids who are hungry for music!  Diamond Cuts 12 will feature over 25 songs celebrating the national pastime.  The sampler will feature some of the highlights from the previous eleven collections and will be distributed to all major and minor league ball parks, as well as select college teams.

Stay Updated

Keep up-to-date on Hungry for Music and this project on Facebook.  The song lineup will be posted as songs become finalized.  The six downloads will obviously be in the starting lineup, plus approximately another 18 songs celebrating our national pastime.  You can also participate by voting on the final song selected (among three songs) for Diamond Cuts 12 starting lineup!
