Concerned with the lack of political courage and radical vision in today’s music, I turned to songwriting as a form of activism.
I do not have a great voice. I was not blessed with a gift for musical instruments. I am taking what I have and trying to make the best of it and contribute to a culture for our movement.
Check out the songs. If you dig ‘em, if you dig what they’re saying, share ‘em with your friends and encourage them to do the same. If the lyrics touch your heart, get involved and contribute your gifts to the movement.
Free to the public, this work is intended not only as a vehicle for protest, but also as an organizing tool.
So what’s the catch? Well, there ain’t much of a catch.
Would I like to get paid for doing this? Of course.
But it’s more important that these words and ideas get out to as many people as possible. Your participation is worth more to me than trying to hustle a dollar out of your pocket.
The only real catch is that, without some kind of dough, I don’t know how long I’ll be able to keep on doing this. Obviously, giving music away for free doesn’t leave much room for making a living.
So, yeah, I’m asking for support. If you think I’m on the right track and want to help me continue on with this, then consider giving a few bucks.
If you think what I’m doing is important, then I’m asking you to pledge five bucks a year. That’s it. Just five bucks a year. Think of it like buying a friend a drink on their birthday.
I don’t feel like that’s too much to ask.
Now if you want to give more, you’re welcome to give whatever you want whenever you want. But my plan is to get enough people chipping in five bucks a year that I can make a decent living and continue offering our courageous activist community little bits of organizing candy.
So let’s do it. Let’s try something different. Let’s get these songs out to the people and offer an alternative to the traditional music industry model in the process.
Become a mini-factor or sugar-fan or whatever you want to call it. Share these songs and help spread the word. But most importantly, get involved and do your part toward getting us to a better world.
