Support Local this Christmas and Give the Gift of Music!
I hope everyone is doing okay, as we are headed into round five of this long bout with COVID. Today is the first day of a long winter ahead.
Musicians have barely had a chance to recover, and now it looks like we will be facing more restrictions that will prevent us from doing our jobs( restrictions are in place in Kingston, already, and in the province of Quebec).
I encourage music fans to think local this Christmas season, and purchase music or merchandise from artists working (or not able to work)and living in your community.
Bandcamp is a wonderful tool for this, as you are able to send music as a gift. Consider sending digital albums this year instead of Christmas cards!
Seeing as I live in Kingston, here are some artists from my community that you should check out:
…and that’s just the tip of the iceberg in this town!
Thanks to My Supporters!
I’ve been very fortunate over the course of this pandemic to have the support of many fans, who have either subscribed to my Bandcamp, or purchased merchandise, to help keep me going. Truly thankful for this! 😌🙏
For my Bandcamp subscribers ( Savage Song Supporters) I’ve done my best to provide interesting and entertaining content in 2021, and now there are currently 19 titles available to subscribers on the site!
For $5/ month you can stream/download these albums and receive any new albums I post in the future…and there will be more, trust me. 😄
