Cover Me is creating the best cover songs blog on the web

patrons

Since 2007, the Cover Me blog has been the internet's definitive destination for all things cover songs. In the past decade-plus, we've published thousands of news posts and features, breaking down the latest and greatest cover songs and diving deep into artists' discographies. Want to hear the best Fleetwood Mac covers ever? Find a cover of every song off the White Album? Or just hear the best new covers out right now? Cover Me is the place.

In our second decade, Cover Me is more popular than its ever been. We've got a monthly segment on SiriusXM, have been shouted out everywhere from The New Yorker to Rolling Stone, and even became a book. But as ad revenues dry up for publishers everywhere, we're turning to you, our readers, to keep us going.

Cover Me has always been, and will continue to be, free for everyone. But by supporting us with a small monthly donation (if you're Jeff Bezos, please know we will accept extremely large donations as well), you will both keep the site going AND get a bunch of cool patron-exclusive extras - newsletters, playlists, downloads, Facebook groups and more. Everything in that list will only be available for our patrons here. The new revenues will help us pay our server bills - literally keeping the site online - pay our writers, fund a frankly long-overdue website redesign, and continue expanding with new features and more of everything you already love.

Thank you for supporting Cover Me with your eyeballs and eardrums for all these years. We hope you'll consider adding your purses and wallets to that list. It's the next phase of Cover Me, and we hope you'll join us.

Commission Cover Me (One-Time Pledge)
$100 or more per month

Pick a song or album for us to cover! Want a post with covers of every song off a certain album ("Full Albums")? Our favorite covers of your favorite song ("Five Good Covers")? A look at the covers career of a great band ("In the Spotlight")? Your wish is our command.

Disclaimer: If we determine your chosen topic is impossible - for instance, if there AREN'T five good covers of your favorite song - you can pick again. Also, this doesn't include the "Best Covers Ever" series (though we welcome suggestions).


Note: To select this one-time option, raise your monthly pledge to $100 - the charge should go through instantly. Then just lower it right back to whatever it was before.

Commission a Cover (One-Time Pledge)
$250 or more per month

Pick a song you want covered and we'll reach out to our roster of musician friends to get someone to cover it for you. If you like, maybe even add a genre you want it covered in. A cover of your favorite never-covered deep cut? A country cover of "Enter Sandman"?

Disclaimer: Artists will follow their creatives muses, so we obviously can't guarantee that every patron will love every cover that results. But the musicians we know are good, so…we think you will.
