Benevolent, Sustainable Music

We are pursuing a new age in the music industry. The 20 million who bought Britney's last record are not fans of music- they're fans of popular culture. We want to bring bands, soul, and social movements back into this industry by way of Benevolence.

CharitySound is for the artist or band without label represenation that has great music but isn't getting heard. We leverage cause marketing to start social music movements. To "Live with Heart".

Who's going to use CharitySound?

  • Bands
  • Artists
  • Consumers
  • Charities

Our model is based on one core feature: discounts for social sharing and subscription.

CharitySound partners with one charity a month. Consumers can purchase full albums for as low as $1 USD by the issuing of discounts for each Facebook like, Twitter/Google follow, Youtube/Instagram subscription, social share, and fan recruited for the artist. We then split the sales evenly three ways: charity, artist, and revenue.

Our UX or "User Experience" is purposfully structured and designed to produce a high viral coefficient.

I also love web/graphic design and cinematography.
I ♥ camera gear.

Our workspace

A tool to create content.

To me the idea of being able to create my own content is not only important, but necessary. Media compels the heart and body to motion.

Anything and everything you see branded and designed for CharitySound was created by, or was sifted through my hands. I have done sound, cinematic, and graphic design for various organizations including: Invisible Children, Gideon's International, Godwhy.com, Iris Global, Lifechurch.tv, Mercy29 (Now Iris Nashville), and Wonderlust Productions.
