Support us

Welcome to the "Help Me Help Independent Music" section – where I don't play sad violins but rather joyful guitars. At Indie Music Center, I've been on a quest to celebrate music that doesn't make the Billboard charts but definitely hits all the right notes. Now, why should you support me on this journey? Well, allow me to serenade you with a few compelling reasons:

Now fully independent: Starting from February 2024, IMC is not chained to submission platforms anymore, platforms that think a few cents are an acceptable form of payment for a full-time job. Also, artists are already struggling a lot financially and I didn't want to take money out of their pocket anymore. The only support comes from my wonderful readers/fans. Their incredible support helps me keep my integrity intact. I'm like the Robin Hoods of indie music, supporting artists without compromising my values. This is why I no longer accept submissions. I only write about what I genuinely love and because I want to, not because I've been asked to.

Promoting independent artists: I'm the indie artists' fan club president, and your support is like the encore they deserve. You help me put the spotlight on these hidden gems and shout, "Hey world, listen to this!"

Quality content: I'm all about those well-crafted reviews and features, like a fine aged cheese or a well-mixed track. Your contribution ensures I keep serving you content that's as top-notch as a Michelin-starred meal.

Growing the music community: Your support allows us to organize events, collaborations, and initiatives that unite music enthusiasts like a giant, global dance party. And who doesn't want that?
