We need your support
As a nonprofit we need your help to ensure this work continues. By joining the CASH Music Family you become a vital part of a future that puts musicians & art first. If we all stand together we can build a healthy way forward.
Our suggested amount is at least $9/month but we understand everyone’s situation is different. For as little as $5/month you’ll get full access to all CASH Music family benefits as soon as they’re announced.
What you get
- A voice in our direction. At least once a quarter we’ll hold a member vote on what features should be built next, who should be nominated for or receive support from The Revolving Fund, and what we need to cover on Watt.
- A feed of music, recommendations, and downloads curated by artists like Neko Case, Thurston Moore, The Haxan Cloak, JD Samson, and more. (See all curators).
- Access to a special Family-only store with one-of-a-kind items like test pressings, autographed records or merch, & exclusive merch from artists & labels we love.

Where does your money go?
CASH Music web tools give musicians no-commission stores, email for download widgets, better tour listings, and more — all free, open, and customizable. Sell on your own site without giving anyone a cut. Build an audience for yourself, not another startup. They’re trusted by bands like Bikini Kill and Run The Jewels — give our tools a try.
Watt explores the economic, technological, cultural and health issues facing musicians to help us learn from each other. Watt features experiences from musicians and industry professionals; research from writers and academics; and editorial writing. Technology and tools are only as valuable as the knowledge driving them.
The CASH Music Revolving Fund is a work in progress exploring a new kind of arts funding. Sometimes all an artist needs to unlock earnings from their work is some up-front money to pay for merch, production, etc. The Revolving Fund is a pay-it-forward no-interest lending program designed to to help artists as entrepreneurs.
