The 50K MUSIC MAG #150K MUSIC - 100% home-made!

Where does 50K MUSIC come from? Originally I started 50K MUSIC as a "printed" mag. Once there was the "SellaBand Tribune" featuring artists on SellaBand. Sometime in 2008 SellaBand did no longer publish the Tribune. So I started writing the 50K MUSIC MAG.

But the MAG was never intended to be a substitute for the Tribune. The basic intention and idea of the MAG was to support SellaBand artists in promoting their music. Due to all the changes on SellaBand I decided to widen the focus to (fan-funded) independent music in general. So I support every independent artist who tries to fan-fund music. Please contact me if you want the support of 50K MUSIC. I'm open minded for ideas and suggestions. But please have a little patience with me if I do not reply immediately to your requests. I do 50K MUSIC as a hobby - so mostly my time for the website and the mag is very limited. I only ask you to be not so fussy when not everything looks perfect here. If you should find anything half-baked, offensive or unlawful here don't hesitate to drop me a line (mario-at-50kmusic.com) and I'll try to fix it asap.

I decided, for transparency reasons, to state the following:

  1. I do not earn money for writing or publishing anything - the amounts you eventually donate go to the other authors and contributors, not in my pocket,
  2. I have invested a few Dollars, Euros or Pounds in several artists I write about here, but I guess I won't earn money enough to make a living out of it,
  3. I try to "avoid" signed artists, but hey, if I love the music I'll write about it,
  4. 50K MUSIC is a non-commercial service and will definitely stay ad-free.
