We support music
Support your favorite artists, directly and regularly • Access their music • Help them create new music • From just $1 a month
At MusoMind, we believe that in an age where musicians and bands are getting paid next to nothing for their music, they should be directly supported by their fans.
We as genuine music fans understand how important it is for artists to be able to make a living from their music. We support our favorite musicians regularly, for even $1 a month, to truly show our appreciation of their music and help them create more of it, Covid-19 or not!
Why should I support music?
Many reasons, among which:
- Music sales are largely gone.
- Streaming platforms pay artists next to nothing for their music.
- Covid-19 made live shows an unreliable income source for artists.
- The fans are all that the artists really got.
- You give back to your favorite artists for creating the music you love.
- You show your favorite artists your true appreciation of their music.
- You help them create new music.
- It's the right thing to do.
What do I get in exchange for my support?
At MusoMind we believe that the music is really all that we as fans need. Unlike the major streaming platforms, we offer a fair model in which you support the artist with very affordable amounts and in exchange access both their present and future releases.
We also encourage artists to stay in touch with their supporting fans and send them a personal Thank you message, to show their appreciation and gratitude for their support.
If I can get the music for free, why should I pay for it?
In MusoMind you're not paying for the music, you're supporting the artist who created it. Musicians and bands who dedicate their talent, passion and hard work to make you happy certainly deserve your support.
Isn't MusoMind really about charity?
We don't think of it that way. It would be charity if we as supporting fans didn't get anything in return, but we already did - we basically have access to all of the music that the artist ever created and will create, anytime, anywhere within the click of a button. In the free music era, supporting music is very different from making a donation.
Why monthly support?
Because the artists need to know that they have a steady fan community and need a sense of continuity in their careers. The more they have that, the more they can commit to making the best music they can.
The artists I like are established. Do they really need my support?
If they created a MusoMind profile, they do. Many bands and musicians nowadays are struggling financially. Even if they are famous, have a lot of followers on social media or used to make a good living out of their music, that doesn't always mean they are making a lot of money out of it anymore. Sad but true.
What do you do with the money?
We are splitting the payments so that the artist is getting the support amount you've set. The other part which is charged on top is made of our platform fee, taxes and transaction processing fee. There are no surprises and no hidden fees - all charges will be clearly presented to you before you confirm your support.
Can I stop or change a support I made?
Yes, you can always stop or change a support from your fan dashboard.
