We are thrilled that Sasha has chosen Waterkeeper as her partner in releasing this beautiful ballad, Atonement,” said Mary Beth Postman, Deputy Director of Waterkeeper.   “Music is such an ideal way to help us raise awareness of our mission and engage people with Waterkeepers around the world. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate Earth Day and engage our community in the ongoing movement to save our planet than through this wonderful song with a purpose, sung and co-written by such a truly talented musician and group of artists.”

Atonement is rooted in a creative collective formed in the beating heart of mountain music known as Appalachia, where the original melody was composed by Witold Wolny, of Big Stone Gap, Virginia, and first recorded there, at Maggard Studios. That arrangement was created and produced by Dave Eggar.  The lyrics were written by Robert Kaufelt,  Peter Godwin, and Sasha Lazard. The final version of the song was recorded in Brooklyn between Mission and Douglass studios, and produced by David TobocmanAtonement was made possible by executive producer Robert Kaufelt, as well as Henry Keuling-Stout, whose late wife Fran is the inspiration for this song.

“This collaboration happened spontaneously while on tour in Appalachia,” said Sasha Lazard. “We created this anthem with great affection for the region, one of the most beautiful places on earth. Protecting our planet is an issue I am dedicated to above any other. I’m happy to put this song out into the world with Waterkeeper, whose mission is so critical to the preservation of our planet.”

A video of Atonement is forthcoming with proceeds continuing to benefit Waterkeeper Alliance.
