About Indie Folk Central

With your support

we can continue creating indie folk compilations

In April 2019 we were close to shutting down our YouTube channel because we weren´t able to continue financially. Our monthly costs were much higher than our income and we had a difficult decision to make. We launched this Patreon page to make it possible for IFC fans to support the work we´re doing. And luckily our supporters here on Patreon saved our channel!

By supporting us with a few dollars a month you´re making it possible for us to continue ith the work we're doing at Indie Folk Central. We set up a few tiers that you can choose from and you can саnсеl your рlеdgе оr сhаngе your рlеdgе аmоunt аt аnу timе.

Is Indie Folk Central worth $3 a month to you? 
And, you'll get free MP3 downloads on a monthly basis!
Pledge $3 and receive 3 - 10 music files a month
Pledge $5 and receive 8 - 16 music files a month
Pledge $10 and receive all the music files (20 to 40 files a month)

And multiple merchandise items are included in some of the tiers!

Who's behind Indie Folk Central? 
March 4, 2021

Hey everyone, I'm Rufus, 30 years old and I'm the owner of Indie Folk Central. I'm living in The Netherlands, together with my wife Anisa, and my two sons Elim (1,5 years old) and Reza (one week old!)

I've been working with indie folk artists since 2012 and I created Indie Folk Central (IFC) back in 2016. My main goal has always been to promote indie folk artists the best way possible and to make their music known. Being critical in the song selection process and spending a lot of time in curating playlists has been a great way to do this. I'm blessed with the help of my wife and some friends of mine, they regularly help me out with the work that needs to be done and I couldn't have done it without them. I'm basically spending most of my time, 6 days a week, on Indie Folk Central. It's my passion and I hope to continue doing this for the rest of my life.

Every day we're in contact with many artists, managements and labels and we're always searching for new unknown indie folk songs. To promote someone's music, the artist has to sign a copyright approval that allows us to use their music on YouTube, SoundCloud, and social media. Some of them also sign a Patreon approval with us, which makes it possible to give their music away as a free download through our Patreon page!

We are sharing share songs because they're good and not because an artist paid for it. This means that we're not charging/accepting money from musicians to be placed in our playlists. And that's why we're hoping to get support from you through our Patreon page. It's entirely optional for you to join, but it does give you some nice benefits!

We want to share many more songs with you, will you help us to make that possible?

Goals
$305.09 of $500 per month
We want to keep developing our videos and many of you requested to have the lyrics displayed in all of them. That's what we want to do! We are already doing this from time to time, but it takes a lot of time and we simply need the financial backup to put that amount of time into every video. Reaching this goal would give us the opportunity to include the lyrics of all the songs featured in every upcoming video compilation! 😎
