It’s the first Friday of the month and you know what that means; BandCamp Friday, my radio show Your Lunch Break, and the very happy marriage of those two events.
If you aren’t aware, BandCamp is a website that allows artists to sell their music and receive a very fair cut of the profits. One thing that makes BandCamp even more special is that the first Friday of every month they wave their 15% revenue share, giving all but the processing fee to the artist. Which is an incredible act of generosity, especially in an uphill industry for independent artists.
I encourage you to take a look around my BandCamp profile today. Perhaps there is an album or song you don’t own yet that you’ve been itching to obtain!? If you spend just one dollar you can rest well knowing that it is going directly to me!
Today’s episode of Your Lunch Break was special because I was able to give love to BandCamp AND to my friends who’ve got music on the site.
In a great effort to help artists and labels impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, BandCamp is waiving their revenue share today, May 1st, giving the artist 94% of all sales. This is such a generous move and truly makes BandCamp a platform that has the artist’s best interest at heart. I’ve been happy to have my music on their site for over 10 years; it has been a wonderful outlet for me.

I’ve got my entire discography up there and would be thrilled with any support that you’re able to give. Maybe you’re also looking to discover new music?
