The Boston music scene is still coming to terms with the sudden passing of Tim Landers, the Massachusetts-based musician who died February 2 at the age of 28 after an extended battle with addiction and mental illness. Now, a GoFundMe has been set up to help pay for his services, with any excesses going to Dean’s House recovery center in Landers’ native Stoneham.

Created by Rise Records, Sequel, and Pure Noise, Landers’ GoFundMe has raised close to $15,000 since it was established last week. Additional funds are being raised through Landers’ music; he was a prolific singer, guitarist, and songwriter whose resume included bands and projects like Transit, Cold Collective, Misser, and Off & On.

“All Misser, Cold Collective, and Transit merch and music on the Rise webstore is 25% off, with 100% of the proceeds going Tim Landers’ family to help cover the expenses associated with his passing, states the GoFundMe. “Anything generated over the actual costs will be donated to Dean’s House in Stoneham, MA. Our friends at Pure Noise Records & Run For Cover Records will have some things running to help as well, so keep an eye on their pages. Many of you have asked if you could still contribute, as a lot of the merch and music items have sold out. We have created this to present the opportunity for everyone to make a contribution. The funds from the MerchNow Promo and forthcoming auction will all be deposited here.”
