Friends of Deep Elm Records: |
Below is an explanation of our Name Your Price download offering for personal audio enjoyment. It applies to every single release in our catalog. That's over 220 albums...over 2,000 songs!
Because Deep Elm Records firmly believes in the power of music to inspire, engage, comfort and console, we decided to adopt a Name Your Price (aka "Pay What You Can") model, to ensure our music can be heard by anyone around the globe for all the right reasons. We are the very first record label to offer its entire catalog in this format. It's a bold and unprecedented move towards getting our music into the hands and ears of as many people as possible. Our music is made available to you after months of expense, time, energy, sacrifice and dedication. And behind the music, the artwork, the lyrics, the spirit of it all...are people just like you. So we leave it up to you to decide its value, not its price.
If you have means...
If you sincerely have no means...
Your support of our artists is a key element in the creation of their music. Our little indie label is about bands and fans coming together, creating something that stirs the senses and sharing those times that we remember forever. We have faith that people, like you, will find it in their head and their hearts to Name Your Price. How long this lasts is not up to us...it's up to you.
We're not just making music together, we're making history...
Love and Aloha,
The Bands and Staff of Deep Elm Records
