It is with great sadness that we announce the closing of the Standing ‘O’ Project.
We have given it our best efforts for nearly six years, but have not reached a point of sustainability. We’ve maintained a level of about 100 subscribers, but that’s only about a tenth of what we’d need to keep the project going. Lots of people love the project… just not enough of them.
We thank you for those of you who participated and were willing to take a chance on a bunch of idealistic folkies with a dream to make the music business better for all.
We encourage you to continue supporting your favorite Standing ‘O’ Artists by visiting their websites and buying their music.
We continue our mission of supporting artists through the public radio program Art of the Song, now in its 15th year and heard on over 100 stations. If you wish to support our efforts to inspire creativity worldwide (and access interviews with the best songwriters of our time) please visit patreon.com/artofthesong.
If you’d like to continue to receive ART OF THE SONG NEWSLETTERS, you must subscribe through this link, as we will no longer be using our current platform to send mailers: http://eepurl.com/gcBWJn
In addition to our work with Art of the Song, we (Vivian & John) are tackling social justice issues by performing Si Kahn’s musical, Mother Jones in Heavenin theaters and music venues across North America and Europe. We’d love to see you at a show! Check out the tour date schedule here and be sure to check back frequently as we are adding new dates all the time: https://motherjonesinheaven.com/performance-dates/
Please call (575-779-0172) or write (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
Still standing, still applauding!
John, Viv & Katie
The Standing ‘O’ Team
