Not Safe To Drink: Music For Flint Water Crisis Relief is a compilation album featuring over 50 bands, including Craig Owens, Real Friends, We Came As Romans and more.
The album will be available for a $5 minimum donation that goes directly to www.flintkids.org to provide long-term relief to thousands of Flint children dealing with the effects of lead exposure.
“My friend James Shotwell and I joked around on Twitter about covering a song called 'Dirty Water' because to a lot of people in music, like my band The Swellers and Chiodos, were the only thing tied to the city of Flint, Michigan,” musician and AP contributor Jonathan Diener said. “It turned into the idea of creating a compilation with not only Flint area bands, but international touring artists as well.”

“My band got back together for one song, Tunde Olaniran, It Lies Within and Craig Owens of Chiodos are some of the names from our area to push this thing and make a difference. It's a diverse list of bands from everywhere not only raising awareness of our city, but also donations to do more than temporary relief with bottled water,” Diener says.
Over ten bands went into the studio with two weeks notice to record brand new songs and Craig Owens was one of the people who stepped up. Stream his original track “How It Feels To Be Defeated” below!
