Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia/Magnolia Electric Co.), my favorite songwriter in the world is having the hardest time of his life and needs your help. Secretly Canadian has posted this note on their website:
Many of you have inquired as to Jason’s whereabouts and well-being since he canceled his tours with Will Johnson in 2009. Over the last two years Jason has been in and out of rehab facilities and hospitals in England, Chicago, Indianapolis, and New Orleans. It has been a very trying time for Jason, his friends, and his family. Although no one can be sure what the future holds, we feel very encouraged by the recent steps Jason has taken on the road towards becoming healthy and productive once again. Unfortunately, because he has no medical insurance, he has accrued substantial medical bills. We are asking all friends of Jason’s music to come together with a showing of financial support for him.
Please consider a contribution to his medical fund (via Paypal). Feel free to forward this to any and all appropriate parties. We are hoping to raise whatever funds we possibly can for Jason. He is currently working on a farm in West Virginia raising goats and chickens for the next year or so, and is looking forward to making great music again. Please also show your support and well wishes by sending letters and postcards to:
P.O. Box 423
Beaver, WV 25813
If you do not wish to use Paypal, please make donations out to Ashley Lawson at the same address.
With our sincere thanks,
The Molina Family
It’s sad to see one of the best songwriters alive having to work on a farm in the middle of nowhere to (not) afford his medical bills… Please help Jason by clicking this link to donate him any amount of money you want. Buy a record of his that’s dear to you which you only own on “ilegally” downloaded mp3. Also, if you donate, you can get a previously unreleased bootleg of an amazing Magnolia Electric Co. 2007 show. See how can you get that by checking the Bandcamp page below – you can also stream the bootleg it if you’re curious about sound quality and stuff.
