According to IsItBandcampFriday.com, it is indeed Bandcamp Friday. If you’re a regular reader, you know that means we’re going to make some selections from the Bandcamp Discovery Zone for anything tagged with #Nashville and share it here. If you’re not a regular reader, well, that’s the deal. You can follow along over on Twitter for a bit more detail on each of these.
If you’re unfamiliar with Bandcamp Friday, it’s a day when the service Bandcamp waives their revenue share fees for artists. This means that the maximum amount of your dollars are going to the artists you want to support. Purchasing music seems passe these days but if you pay even the slightest bit of attention, you’ll know that streaming services do not support artists. Yes, they maximize convenience but they don’t actually help your favorite artists continue being your favorite artist. Not ideal!
But this isn’t a post about the evils of streaming services, this is a celebration of releases and artists to support. So, by all means, reference our list of releases, find your own and start giving some support!
