How to support creators during the pandemic, part two: Musicians
Featuring more examples from the Exvangelical podcast
Hi there. This is part two of a series about how to support creators affected by the pandemic. You can find the first one featuring authors here. Here’s what I’m up to with this series:
I’ve had several musicians, authors, podcasters, and other content creators on the show over the years. Many of them have had cancellations as we all move to shelter-in-place. Here are ways you can support the [creators] who have been on the show.
This edition is focused on musicians.
David Bazan is one of my favorite musicians. His work has meant more to me than I can say. Having him on the podcast (twice!) was incredible honor. In 2019 he began touring under the band name Pedro the Lion again and released the album Phoenix.
Derek Webb is an original member of Caedmon’s Call, and has been a solo artist for nearly 2 decades. He is also a co-founder of NoiseTrade. Since 2019, he has been creating content for Patreon, including an exclusive podcast. He’s also created content for musicians hoping to have online concerts in light of the pandemic. He’s made it available for free. Finally, he’s recently announced a new End of the World Online Tour, a series of online concerts beginning in April.
Trey Pearson was in the band Everyday Sunday. For the past several years, he has been creating solo work under his own name. You can support Trey directly on Patreon.
Jennifer Knapp is a musician and author. She is not currently on tour, but you find her albums on Spotify, from Lay It Down - the album that launched her career - to her latest, Loves Come Back Around.
These are all great musicians you can support right now. If you like this content, hit the ‘heart’ button and subscribe using the button below.
Be good to one another. Remember: We are distant, but we’re still connected; we’re solitary, but we’re not alone.
