Supporting Independent Musicians

If you love to see creative independent music and free creators from the constraints of following the dictates of a marketing department in order to be signed to a label in order to have food money for their careers, the very best way to support them is now to subscribe to become a patron on Patreon.

You can do that for as little as $1 a month and it means so much to the artists – it means the FREEDOM to follow their own heart when they create. It might mean they can buy that new piece of software or gear, or go into the studio and record. It might mean they can dedicate more of their time to their true career rather than try to have two different careers at once. You, supporting independent musicians, can make that happen, and you will also receive rewards for it, too!

We here at Paperbag Empress Records have made this list of independent creatives who deserve our Patreon support.
