SO, YOU WANT TO BE A STANDING ‘O’ ARTIST MEMBER…
Glad to hear it. Artists like you provide the foundation and reap the benefits of the project.
First of all, it’s FREE. Becoming an ARTIST MEMBER requires zero financial investment. You do, however, invest in the project by contributing music, videos, photos, etc., and by inviting friends, fans, and fellow artists into the community. You earn 50% of the monthly membership revenue your fans generate.
In a time when streaming services pay artists a micro-fraction of a penny per play, STANDING ‘O’ is a much needed new business model. You’re paid for building the COMMUNITY, not for how many streams your songs get. Bringing in just one fan pays you more that several thousand plays on a popular streaming service, and you get paid every month.
The fans you invite pay a modest monthly fee to join. Again, you receive 50% of the revenue they generate. That means you can earn anywhere from a few bucks a month to several hundred. The potential is limitless. The effort you put in pays you back.
The other 50% goes to running this site, building the community, and keeping our listener-supported radio program Art of the Song on the air.
The only requirements are these:
- you must be a working musician;
- you must be willing to share your music and other content;
- you must be willing to invite your fans to join.
(It’s not like we have a squad enforcing some fan invitation quota. But if you don’t invite them, you won’t get much benefit. Fortunately, the vast amount of content your fans can access for a mere 5 bucks a month is an incredible value. Unlike with other artist-philanthropy sites, fans get access to not just your content, but EVERYTHING on the site, including the Art of the Song archive of amazing interviews. This is a true COMMUNITY where everyone benefits as we grow!)
Complete the form below. (It’s FREE.) Then, you’ll be taken to a page where you can begin uploading to your Featured Artist content.
You will also receive a series of emails explaining step-by-step how to get the most out of your STANDING ‘O’ membership. Be sure to whitelist firstname.lastname@example.org so you’ll receive all our communication.
