Paying it Forward

Send it Everywhere.

For the past few years, Jane Siberry, whom I've written about here and here, has made her music available on a "pay-what-you-want" basis on her website.

This week, she announced she's discontinuing that practice because of frustrations with PayPal.

"My music is now free," she announced. "Please download with great enthusiasm. Take good care of the music. Fill your ipods. Send it everywhere."

(If you're not sure where to start, I'd recommend Jane Siberry for stark folk with huge vocals, No Borders Here for great songwriting and tentative electronica, The Speckless Sky for gorgeous synth-based pop songs, The Walking for haunting melodies and longer cinematic songs, Bound by the Beauty for the pure exuberance of not-quite-folk/not-quite-country, and everything for great songwriting and amazing harmonies.)

Go here to get the music. And don't forget to pay it forward.
