Bandcamp is waiving revenue shares today, and you should support POC artists.
Today is another Bandcamp Friday, meaning until midnight tonight, the platform will be waiving revenue shares and letting artists take 100 percent of profits.
Now more than ever, as Black Lives Matter protests occur around the world, it's extremely important to lift marginalized voices. The music industry has repeatedly erased Black voices throughout history, despite the fact that most mainstream genres were invented by Black people.
Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
The platform continues to host #BandcampFridays, where they waive revenue shares to further help artists.
It's no secret that it's tough out there for musicians right now.
Many have used their spare time as an opportunity to post covers, but the truth is that without a chance to tour, a lot of smaller musicians are facing a major setback. Bandcamp, whose artist-friendly platform has already paid musicians significantly more than sites like Spotify and Apple Music, has been going the extra mile.
