Lets face it, most of us probably know of ways to obtain your favorite songs for free. But for bands and artists to survive they not only need your fan support, they also have to have some sort of financial support as well to be able release music to their fans. Without this financial support, the music goes silent and some great bands and artists stop making music. So the question for me is, what is the best way to support your favorite bands? Well one great option I have discovered is Pledge Music.
So what is Pledge Music? Well I will let the creators describe it with the excerpt below taken from their site:
"Pledge Music offers you the opportunity to fund your favourite band or solo artist’s new album. In effect, you as the fan become the record label the band or solo artist is recording for. You help fund their record and if they don’t reach their pledge target you won’t get charged a cent."
