June Proceeds For Giants
In recognition of Juneteenth, Breonna Taylor's birthday, George Floyd, the protests against police brutality, and...Jesus, I could go on and on and on...all June proceeds from Methodist Hospital's album Giants will be split between the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Color of Change. I've already set this up in DistroKid, and they're also doing the same with their usual percentage. So the revenue from any purchase/stream on Spotify, Apple Music, TIDAL, or any other platform will go completely to the aforementioned two places.
As for Bandcamp, I'll send anyone who downloads the album a receipt for a donation in their name for whatever amount they paid. I should note that you can pay whatever you want for the album on Bandcamp—$1, $100, 50 cents, it doesn't matter.
In addition to June revenue, I've spoken to my good friend and musical partner Maxwell J Shults, and we're sorting through our finances to donate anything we have leftover from previous months to organizations fighting for police reform and Black freedom and justice. I believe Max is doing the same for their own music.
I hope everyone's staying safe. I hope my white friends and family are educating themselves and not being afraid to make mistakes in the process. I hope I learn from my own mistakes.
