PayPal Tip Jar + Better Than The Book's "Brighton" featured again on The Ska Show with Beefy (alongside Less Than Jake too)!
Hi everyone and hope you're staying safe and healthy especially during these corona virus times. It's been another week of lock-down over here at JabunAudio filled with a little bit of Jabun composition, some World Beyond project proofing, some Better Than The Book guitar/vocal practice, and a whole load of JabunAudio admin work since the new tax year started on Monday. Some more exciting radio news to share with you today as well as a long overdue update so let's get on with it!
First of all, after much consideration and suggestions from various social media platforms due to the corona virus disruptions over the last month or so, I've decided to set up a PayPal tip jar for anyone who wants to throw some spare PayPal pennies my way to support my music, especially during this crazy time.
I realise that while Patreon is a great platform for people who want to support my music/projects on a regular basis, many people aren't in that position to do so, and since I try to keep as much of my music as possible free to listen to for everyone on platforms such as Spotify, YouTube, Soundcloud, Newgrounds, etc... there's not much incentive these days for people to actually buy digital downloads anymore (a huge thank you to everyone who does though)! With this being the case, I thought setting up a separate PayPal tip jar would be a good alternative for those who want to support my music with one-off tips or the occasional support without the commitment of Patreon, or simply buying the same digital album over and over again. If YouTube (etc...) is my busking street, think of this tip jar as my open guitar case for your spare change. Every little bit makes a difference!
With the UK on lock down at the moment, all I can really do is make or practice more music (as you've heard), so I'll be working on a whole plethora of new tunes for the foreseeable future! If you're enjoying the music and have some pennies you won't miss (whether a Patreon supporter already or not), feel free to send them my way via the new PayPal Tip Jar button or hyperlink below:
You can now find this tip jar button at the foot of all the JabunAudio, JabunMusic, Better Than The Book, and Nick Standing web pages, and I've updated my various social media profiles and streams with the hyperlink (where I can) so it'll always be easy to find! Thanks as always for supporting JabunAudio, Jabun, Better Than The Book, and my various music projects in all the ways you can, many thanks for listening, and I can't wait to take Better Than The Book live once this corona virus thing is all over!
Next and lastly for this post, some super cool news to share as Better Than The Book's "Brighton" was back on The Ska Show with Beefy this week playing alongside Less Than Jake's "The Science of Selling Yourself Short" (a track I requested for the show and one of my all time favourites)! Thanks for sharing the tunes and the lovely shout out, Beefy!
Check out the replay of the show below: Less Than Jake is on at -37:03 followed by a lovely shout out, then "Brighton", then more tunes and another shout out!
And check out the full playlist for the show below! Lots of great stuff this week!
Remember you can grab "Brighton" and the rest of the Hopes and Dreams album in all the usual digital places including the Better Than The Book Bandcamp page:
Or grab the full BTTB discography, bonus tracks and all when you become a supporter on Patreon if that’s your jam. The next set of rewards will be on April 24th (my 30th birthday) including 2 new Patreon exclusive bonus tracks so hope to see you then!
And that about wraps up this blog post! I'm told there'll be something new to share from World Beyond next week so look forward to that, and by then I'll hopefully have my taxes sorted and be back to Jabun composition or something equally as exciting! Until then, I hope you have a great week to come, stay safe and sensible during these crazy times, and thanks as always again for supporting JabunAudio and my various music projects. Take care!
Nick Standing; Better Than The Book; Jabun!
