Helping the Swamp Music Players is more than just helping one band, we support and promote many artists both within our collective, local artists and artists internationally! We are an eco-system of social media sharing, collborative recordings and helping peers! You can help !
Please follow/subscribe on your preffered music streaming service. There are severals to choose from that feature us (Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, Napster, Tidal ect.). We focus mainly on Spotify and Deezer.
OK Level 1 fan/supporter takes the time to subscribe to our Youtube, a follow on a music streaming service like Spotify/Deezer and bothers to follow us on their favorite social media sites like Twitter ect.
Level 2 is more for the active indie music supporter. Less mainstream music sites or our video streaming is a great way to get to know us better. You may follow us on a playlist or keep closer tabs on us via video streaming off of Youtube or Periscope. You might checkout our blog more often.
It’s no joke! Having more social media followers helps us in our grant applications, it helps with gatekeepers and more follows and subs mean more follows and subs. Just like sharing and playlists really do help! It has so far and the more the better!
Free Section – Level 3
You follow the sites but Level 3 is taking more action. You choose to share our music, our youtube links or reccomend us to people that like our genre. You might add us to your Spotify or music streaming playlist. You might request us on your local college radio or if you know someone one in the biz you might reccomend us. You might be more active retweeting us, likeing videos or posts and generally being AWESOME. It is a BIG deal !
$$$ – Level 4
No doubt money helps, if you donate even $1 in the lifetime of your supporting Swamp Music Players it will generate more revenue than hundreds of random spins on a music streaming service! Your follows and subscriptions do help in other ways but $1 here and there has a big impact on revenue. You might even wish to buy an album (*gasp) and we have new merch on Redbubble that is pretty awesome (t-shirts, miniskirts, muscle shirts, wall art and more!). You can contact me to see if I have any physical copies for sale and so on.We are on tons of sites such as CDBaby, Amazon in several countries and more!
A purchase on Bandcamp is pretty cool, its a site we have become more active on and hope to start putting up original albums rather than just use it for singles. Its a nice site to send us a payment because we get it right away unlike some other sites that take months!
Merch on Redbubble how cool is that? Great looking T-shirts, Muscle shirts, Mini skirts and artwork! Get your Swamp Music Players merch !
In the future I will list more items in the blog or merch page like cassette tapes and one day we will offer special merch and vinyl!
Donations we now accept Bitcoin if that is your kinda thing!
This year (2018) Swamp Music Players appeared on the soundtrack of ‘HellCat’s Revenge’ a Len Kabasinski action film! You may remember Len from his fame and special appearances on ‘Red Letter Media’ but he has his own following in the Midwest as an auteur of DIY action films. It’s a really amazing oppurtunity for the Swamp Music Players to be part of the filmography of such a notable folk hero of B-movies. We are big fans of RedLetter media and retro style films so it is a huge honor for us. ‘HellCat’s Revenge’ was released via Cinedigm and distributed in Canada via Universal Home Entertainment!
This has inspired Swamp Music Players to become more involved in soundtrack projects as we already have a following in Hollywood.
Urban Crime by Swamp Music Players
Swamp Rock influences combine with 1980s style Americana and Alt Music to create a LoFi retro-futuristic anachronism.
Really happy about the release of our EP album ‘Urban Crime’ it made a couple chart positions in Canada and The Netherlands and it opened new doors for us with college and community radio stations that never played our music before giving us a first chance. A very fun album to make and we made some Youtube videos as well.
