I’m super happy that Future of Music Coalition exists. They’re doing important work in DC with policy. Those are slower things to change but also very important. I’m excited that Bandcamp is hiring really great writers. I’m not certain bands should be using it as their entire store, but if it’s another digital outlet, I think that’s awesome, and one that does discovery, even better. There’s Distrokid, which is cool. You pay $20 a year and you can release as much as you want through their system to all of the digital outlets in the world, there’s no percentage taken.
No other group can say that. And we’re not done yet.
Future of Music Coalition and our artist allies understand that change is inevitable. The difference is that we want change to equal progress. And not just for a handful of giant corporations whose business interests aren’t always aligned with artists or fans.
We are in this together.
We fight for musicians. We stand with fans. We are the Future of Music.
You know we’re all about musicians. (And cute kittens, obvs.)
We at FMC are hopelessly devoted to helping musicians have a voice in the issues that affect them. For more than a decade, FMC has been there for all artists great and small (and possibly even fuzzy). It warms our hearts to know you’re there for us, too. <3
With a monthly recurring donation of any amount you can help us keep on doing right by musicians. ‘Cause that’s what caring is all about. And why not make the love last all year? Your ongoing commitment helps us keep the good stuff going on behalf of musicians and songwriters everywhere. read more
Ho-Ho-Holeee crap, it’s December already! To celebrate the season of giving, FMC is once again asking our friends, supporters, peers, associates, moms, dads, second cousins and any one else within earshot to contribute to our humble organization. We’re a loud bunch.
