Jimmy James of The True Loves

Today, June 5, Bandcamp is waiving their revenue share in order to help artists and labels impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This means that every purchase you make on the site today goes 100% towards the musicians and labels selling their wares. It’s a tremendous opportunity to support a creative community struggling with the financial devastation wrought by the pandemic.

The resulting global outcry for an end to the systemic racism that has claimed George Floyd, and so many other black and African American lives, has also underscored the necessity for all of us to do all we can to stamp out a moral epidemic that’s as pervasive and damaging as any viral outbreak.

Artist Home wholeheartedly believes Black Lives Matter. And with that truism in mind, we thought it’d be a perfect time to gather a list of some of the Pacific Northwest’s great black musicians and bands, currently offering their wares on Bandcamp.

The below list is not definitive by any measure, so please feel free to throw suggestions our way via the comments or our socials, so that we can get the word out for any artists we’ve missed.

The 100% artist-revenue sale continues until midnight PST tonight. Take care, stay safe, and give this constellation of amazing creatives your financial support if you can.
