Rarely do I become this excited about a new set of tools for musician. Cash Music is a nonprofit Portland based organization that sounds very interesting. You see Cash Music is set to be a new competitor to services like TopSpin but the main difference is Cash Music is free…
“CASH Music builds open source digital tools for musicians and labels. Our mission is to help educate and empower artists and their fans to foster a more viable and sustainable future for music…..What WordPress did for bloggers, we’re doing for musicians. We’re building a free and open platform that’s available to all artists, designed in partnership with the artists and labels who are members of our organization.”
Say waaaaah? Those are some bold statements Son, but CASH Music isn’t just talking, they’re providing musicians with some slick looking, and slick acting applications. These applications integrate with Amazon, PayPal, Twitter, MailChimp and more. Also this is designed for musicians, so no programming needed (Yes!).
Plus CASH Music has been endorsed by a lot of awesome musicians. Just to name a few: Brendan Benson, Calexico, Jonathan Coulton, HEALTH, Iron & Wine, Ted Leo, Amanda Palmer, Xiu Xiu, Zola Jesus, Fat Cat Records, Kill Rock Stars.
