Support journalism. Support the arts.
When you support A Humming Heart, you contribute towards building a musician's career. Good art thrives on patronage, and the artist is at the centre of our model. 25% of our revenue (from our patrons through contributions) goes towards our Artist Fund through which we give back to the Independent Music community. Apply for the fund here.
Through this fund, the selected artists will be able to
Pay for their music distribution
Partially cover their recording/studio expenses
Put together a tour to push their music
Build visuals and other marketing assets
We will consider India born and based artists (with an Indian bank account) who have at least one official release either up for streaming on music platforms or for sale in digital or physical format.
No boundaries, no biases
Language no bar
Genres no bar
Age no bar
Social media following no bar
To begin with, we are setting a cap of INR 5000 per artist. This means that in one month, we could help support multiple artists as well. This cap and value could be modified in the future as we grow and gain more patrons.
Here’s the best part! Each paisa going in and out of this fund will be accounted for and the balance sheet will be updated every quarter and shared with our patrons.
We hope that this will go a long way in furthering the Indian music industry and fill the potholes that are glaring at us, now more than ever.
