Hey everyone! Kibbe here.

Some Kind of Awesome has been actively engaging in the art of music discovery since January 2010. Chasing page views for ad dollars takes away from my ability to practice deep listening and seek out artists that could potentially be deeply meaningful to someone, even if they never see mainstream success. Also ads are just really gross and are really distracting when you're trying to immerse yourself into a song, music video, etc., which is why I haven't had them on the site for several years now. I believe that capitalism shouldn't be the reason a band who is doing something deeply meaningful doesn't get covered simply because there's not enough "buzz" around them. The way that we connect to music and subsequently connect to others as fans is one of the most powerful things in the world and I live for facilitating that for the corner of the internet that has allowed me to do so. 

Which brings us to why you're here now reading this. Sharing music with the internet is what gets me out of bed in the morning. I would love to be able to focus all of my energy on supporting artists of all sizes by relaying their art and their stories to the world. At the very least it would be cool if I could cover the out of pocket costs that I happily pay to keep things moving along on the site. In the long term if support were to grow to certain scale I'd love to eventually allocate funding for a variety of things: hiring people to help me make more content around the artists we support, artists showcases, assistance for international artists who need help with visas, and plenty of other things that I'd be happy to share if/when the time comes. 

Love y'all!
