Record Store Day and Marshall team up to Support Todd Rundgren’s Spirit of Harmony Foundation

Record Store Day has worked hard over its 16 year tenure to support some of the most impactful charities and social initiatives on radar. Marshall Headphones & Speakers, Record Store Day announce a donation to Todd Rundgren’s Spirit of Harmony Foundation, a nonprofit whose mission is to emphasize the moral imperative of music education. 

Rundgren’s classic album A Wizard, A True Star sees a special 50th Anniversary release on April 22 as part of Record Store Day, the celebration of independent record stores. US organizers have pledged to donate $1 per copy sold of the stunningly beautiful reissue at US record stores that weekend to the Spirit of Harmony Foundation, combined with a generous donation from Marshall Headphones & Speakers.  

The donation will be presented to Rundgren later this summer by Record Store Day co-founder, Michael Kurtz. Kurtz says “I grew up with Todd’s music, and more importantly, the message found in much of his music. It’s a real honor to be able to lend support to his efforts to provide financial support for music education and appreciation in the classrooms through the Spirit of Harmony Foundation. To me, it’s just one victory, but an important one.” 

Todd Rundgren adds “I can’t over-emphasize the importance of the brand association with Marshall. Modern music would have evolved in a different direction were it not for the ‘sound’ that every aspiring guitarist wanted- and it was stackable! To have them on our side brings the legacy of thousands of performances behind us and we are truly grateful.”
