You may or may not have seen my post this morning about Bandcamp over at stevelawson.net.
Since posting it, I’ve had lots of tweets from friends whose music is on it, so let’s start a directory of entries – post a link to your bandcamp page in the comments, with a little bit of info about you and your connection to me (just so it doesn’t become a music-spam-fest – there’s no special criteria for being included, other than some kind of link – twitter-friends, gig buddies, blog readers etc… all are fine 🙂 ) and I’ll grab the embed code from your site and add it here, creating a little online shop 🙂
here are my 3 bandcamp albums so far:
and here are the first of the embeds from the comments:
(while all this has been going on, I’ve uploaded my first album to bandcamp as well: )
Well, this is a great idea. Thanks for setting it up.
I am not particularly connected to you other than being a blog reader and twitter follower. But by jove, I do read the heck out of that blog, I do 🙂
My band’s EP and very new album is available at http://riverblind.bandcamp.com
Pay what you want and share as much as you like 🙂
Hey there. Been a Steve listener since the Johnny Markin days, and long time Tweets and blogs reader.
My stuff is on Bandcamp as http://paulbellmusic.bandcamp.com. Enjoy!
I’m here: http://timeveleigh.bandcamp.com. Only three songs so shouldn’t waste anybody’s time for too long.
I love Bandcamp. I like the interface, the simplicity and the ease of how I can integrate it into my site.
Love your idea of a directory, very inspiring and generous of you. You can find my music at:
I’ve not visited your blog for a while, but this is a great reminder of why I should visit more often.
Thanks very much.
Rob – Boy at Heart
Am enjoying following your tweets/posts – I hope to get round to some bass lessons very soon. In the meantime here is the bandcamp profile I setup for my band – Remixing – EQing and some Re-Recording needed. Its the cleanest interface so far – and hopefully will be useful in getting gigs.
Hey Steve…great Idea. Fellow solo bassist looper type from Toledo,Ohio. We hosted a house concert for you and Lobelia and I follow both on the twitter. I like bandcamp very much. It’s simple clean and very effective. My bandcamp page is http://www.stevengbass.bandcamp.com
Hi, I follow your blog and have seen you talk at social media events like mobile monday. I came across this via Steven Guerrero’s tweet. My instrumental music is at http://mulberryharbour.bandcamp.com
I lurve Bandcamp, and I’m a huge fan of this blog post / impromptu directory / splendidness idea. Brilliant.
Can I be in it now? 😉 http://music.ihatemornings.com
Hi Steve!! Thanks for all the plugs! My bandcamp site is: http://music.botched.com
Great idea, Steve! I’ve had my albums on Bandcamp for a while now and absolutely LOVE the service. Ethan is a great guy and super responsive to suggestions about the site.
The URL for my main band, The Jason Parker Quartet, is http://jasonparkerquartet.bandcamp.com. We have three albums up, including our brand new one, “No More, No Less”.
I also have a page for my funk band Water Babies at http://waterbabies.bandcamp.com.
Glad I “met” you through Twitter, and I love the blog. Keep it up!
Steve, you are lovely AND fluffy. Thanks for all your tweetage on behalf of the musically thriving and striving.
Blog reader and twitter follower here. Thanks for putting such a page together!
My solo stuff is at http://howlinhobbit.bandcamp.com and my band’s stuff is at http://snakesuspenderz.bandcamp.com.
I’m a Twitter-follower of yours via @dubber – H&K are mutual friends from New Zealand, and I *manage* their online/digital presence.
thanks Owen, I really like the H&K album – you posting on their behalf doesn’t really meet the criteria, but I’ll make an exception cos it’s awesome 😉 ha!
you just have to love bandcamp, don’t you? and they’re so entertaining too – not unlike your twitter feed at times!
see kirsty mcgee’s hobopop catalogue at – http://kirstymcgee.bandcamp.com
and mat martin’s experimental compositions at – http://matmartin.bandcamp.com
I think we’re connected @ last.fm, twitter, facebook, …. just to name a few! 🙂
Imagine if Bandcamp would add social network functions … 😉
http://mennarsins.bandcamp.com/ ( I play bass with these fine lads!)
I don’t know whether you follow me 😉 but I follow you on Twitter (@DaedalusT). I have an album of improvised music/noise at http://asymptotictaste.bandcamp.com/ .
Awesome! I am following you on twitter and I read your blog sometimes. I am @SunnaGunnlaugs and would love to be included in this. I am a jazz pianist from Iceland. http://sunnagunnlaugs.bandcamp.com but this might be a better page to link to http://sunnagunnlaugs.bandcamp.com/album/songs-from-iceland
Excellent idea: setting-up his directory Steve. I opened an account w/ Bandcamp some tim e back, but you’ve nudged me just enough to activate it today. Thanks!
Should have our first 2 albums up within the next couple of days.
Cheers Steve 🙂 Your tweets regularly inform and amuse and you’ve been a great inspiration to me in my new solo bass live-looping endeavours. My bandcamp page is http://russbass.bandcamp.com Thanks again!
Hey, Steve – I guess we’ve been email/MySpace/Twittering at each other off-and-on since ARF? came out, right? I’ve got all my solo stuff (including this year’s ongoing 5240 project) up at http://shawnfarley.bandcamp.com, and then the releases I’ve done with my band Half Zaftig can be found at http://halfzaftig.bandcamp.com. Cheers!
I embedded ARF in the thread, cos I love it, but I’m really looking forward to checking out the rest of your music on there Shawn! 🙂
Steve – Been following your Tweets and Blog since I boarded this bus in August. This is a great community idea! http://www.darrylgregory.bandcamp.com
this is such a great list thanks so much for contributing to it, y’all. Now we need to pimp it:
It’s been really fun to curate the list (and I’m sure it’ll keep growing) – I’ll be back here listening for quite a while before I get through all of them 🙂
Our Bandcamp stuff (though this far it only features tracks commissioned by the theatre company “Imitating the Dog” fr the Greek/UK collaboration “Tales from the Bar of Lost Souls”… making the music. “Music from Tales From The Bar Of Lost Souls”. Catchy name.
I know you through twitter and through here, and Unconvention and the James talk in Leeds.
Hope you, Lobelia and bump are all well.
Hi Steve, been posting a few replies to your blog and tweeting with you now and then about all sorts of (music) stuff. I enjoy your writing immensely, it’s very thought-provoking.
Our band Caipirinha is at http://caipirinha.bandcamp.com/ , funk meets brazil sort of vibe.
Hey Steve, great work getting this together. We’re big mates with Christian Payne who speaks very highly of you, which is why we now find ourselves contributing/pimping ourselves to your site. Keep up the good work and all the very best to you…
Thanks Steve! Much appreciated… and a great idea to have people’s stuff on your site. Is the idea “Open Source”? [wink]
but of course – nick it, run with it, curate bits of this list for your own site. Spread the love 🙂
I’ve discovered (like I discovered it.. yeah, right!) that Posterous + Bandcamp makes for an AWESOME MP3 blog – head over to http://www.posterous.com to find out more, but it’s basically a blog you can update via email.
With bandcamp, you just copy the embed code for the album you want to post into an email, and write about it, and it goes live to your posterous account. Have a look at mine – http://solobasssteve.posterous.com/ – I’ve put a couple of bandcamp albums up there this way.
So, here’s your task – take the recordings above that you like the best and write about them, encourage your readers/fans/friends/family to listen, and to grab the downloads (and through in some shrapnel if that’s required) – simples!
Welcome to Bandcamp – it’s brilliant!! My home recorded EP went up on there in June, shortly after I was lucky enough to guest sing with Lobelia at The Apollo Project (my EP is dedicated to the project, you see), here it is: http://shemakeswar.bandcamp.com/
Dang! Forgot to come back and say, “Thanks!”
I’m pleased and honored to be a part of such a fine collection.
hey Steve, we’re unconvention buddies i guess. My band Escape Act has been using bandcamp to host the ‘release’ of our first album, which was released through MP3 blogs last year. It also hosts some remix stems. With new recordings nearly finished, we’ll be adding more music in the near future.
Hello Steve! Really cool list brewing over here! Thanks for compiling it! I’ve been pretty busy w/ Viola/life/music but always think about jamming the ‘Windham Hill Blues’ w/ you in January. That house concert still remains the high point of my year (and there’s been lots of good times vying for high point!) Anyhow, always dig everything you do-and got on Band Camp (& recommended it to others) by way of you-such a great site- “Symmetria” is there, and a new album (The Forest That Hears And The Field That Sees) about to go up soon too! here’s the link to my page:
-be well and best wishes from me and Kathy with the new arrival!!
Hey there Steve and everyone! We are in the “twitter friends” category. As for our relationship, I have enjoyed exchanging ideas on the evolution of the industry with you. I feel a bit late in joining the fun since it looks like most of you were participating last fall. I had fun poking around here then, but was busy getting things together for the release of my 2nd album and I didn’t have the bandcamp set up yet on my site. Now my bandcamp webstore has been up for a while and I’ve been loving it. I’ve been using the features in ways that have been suited to my needs and it just makes selling your music fun. Who woulda thunk? Phase I went well and now I’m in Phase II leading up to the release. I keep learning and growing. Here’s the link http://merchandise.manishamusic.com and if you feel like it, then you can grab the code (preferably linked to When Parallel Lines Meet, which is the new one coming out in April) and add it here. I will check out Posterous. Peace & thanks for the connectivity, Manisha
Hi Steve. I don’t know how you keep track of everything in your virtual world! Thanks for all the twittering info these past few months. Say hello to the rest of your lovely clan for me. 🙂
This is a new folk trio I’m helping out with my ‘label’ of sorts, that I’ve dubbed Rocking Chair Records I’ve just graduated from university, having been taught by your NMS colleague Andrew Dubber over the years.
Links aren’t live yet but in due corse http://www.threepairsofshoes.co.uk & http://www.rockingchair-records.com will be the links to check.
Great idea this directory, checking out the others stuff now 😀
I’m not sure how I managed to forget to post my link here http://mattstevens.bandcamp.com – me on BC. Speak soon man
