Empower an Artist
1 Hour of Recording
PeaceTones assists artists in impoverished communities by helping them to record music and place this online for-sale. Profits go in part to fund a community goal and part to benefit the artists. Contracts for the revenues and the rights of the music need to be written and the artists need to be educated on their intellectual property rights. A pro-bono online network of lawyers called the Legal Empowerment Network has been set up to mediate these contracts.
Your gift will provide an hour of recording for one artist or group. After recording and mastering music contracts are put in place so the CD’s can be sold online. 90% of the profits go directly to the artists and a community goal they selected. In the past these have been building a school or community center or their own recording studio. By selling their recorded music online they can generate revenue to strengthen their communities.
