I’m totally up for this and happy to get involved. Perhaps as suggested something in the electronic/experimental/ambient arena is the way to go as a bunch of us already write music that falls loosely into those kind of categories.

As a start I’ve got a Distrokid account to get my stuff as Lowering onto Spotify/iTunes/Amazon etc., and I think I can ‘upgrade’ it pretty easily to a “label” which would enable us to include a bunch more artsists and call the “label” whatever we wanted. I think it would cost about £10/£15 a year depending on how many people wanted in on it.

You can also easily split and send royalties and stuff via Paypal. Obviously I haven’t even made enough money back from Spotify streams to cover the distrokid fees so far but :man_shrugging:

Oh yeah, I do this too. It’s a great deal. Absolutely craps all over the digital distro I was using previously.

That was the best! He has such a great relaxing radio voice too. Much love and respect for the time and effort he put into all of those

I think this is a great idea, but would have to be handled carefully for all the reasons mentioned above. I’m going to have a think about it : )

I also agree that an ambient/electro/lo-if/kick-ass-banjo digital label would be a good idea

If I was rich I would commission you to do this. Not that it helps

I’ve had two pints of Guinness and just realised I only have one life and there’s no reason I can’t use the 25-50 years I have left of it to start learning and become adequately good at playing the fiddle. How do I start tho?

Doing the Christmas song challenge was fun and a rewarding online community experience so I’m down to contribute in some way - art, synth bloops, a few quid, whatever’s needed

Tried to play my friends violin a few weeks back and it’s the hardest thing in the world. More chance of playing guitar with my feet
