Some music/music related things I’ve been listening to lately.

I don’t know if you’re in the search for some new things to listen to, but in case you are, I figured I’d share 3 songs and a podcast that have been trending in my ear.

And this podcast, Broken Record, is hosted by Justin Richmond with interviews by the producer Rick Rubin, the writer Malcolm Gladwell, and the former New York Times editor Bruce Headlam. It is a must listen for any music lover seeking to dive deeper into the creative process of artists that they love and admire:

BandCamp

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.

If you’re looking for a way to help your indie artist, download some new (and old) music today! 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? Take some time today to browse around the site. Your next favorite band is just a click away!
