Subject: Artists, Musicians and Bitcoin
Over the past 25 years I have watched musicians lose financial ground. It’s not just the value of recorded music that is decreasing, but the very dollars that we earn are being devalued in order to prop up stock markets and the rest of the economy.
In the next ten years, there’s going to be a massive transfer of wealth due to the increasing pace of technological and social change.
I want to see artists on the upside of those changes.
I am NOT a financial advisor. That said, I want to make it fun and worthwhile for you to explore Bitcoin, and there’s a very strong chance that you will financially benefit from your newfound interest.
Here’s all you do.
- Download the CashApp from Square. Most musicians already trust Square, and won’t mind connecting a bank account to the CashApp. This is the absolute easiest way to buy Bitcoin.
- Fund your App with $50, and buy $50 of Bitcoin from the App.
- Reply to this email and tell me you did it – I’ll give you $50 off your next LRN renewal. (This offer is only for LRN artist members.)
- I’m only recommending a $50 purchase. Don’t neglect your important bills for this!
- I don’t receive any direct benefit from your purchase. I simply want to introduce people I care about (friends and customers) to a very important force. The value will go up and down… hold it for at least a year.
- I’ve made small investments in Bitcoin since 2017 and it has introduced me to profound concepts and people. I hope it does for you too.
- I cannot be your tech guy for this – if you are not good with phone apps… please ignore this entire message. 8^)

A few months ago we created Fan Memberships for our network. Our existing reputation is for helping new hosts get started, and helping them find talent for their shows. However, the biggest challenge that hosts (and artists) face is developing a steady audience – one large enough to fulfill the expectations for each show.
Over the next few months you’ll see our ads on Facebook (the social media where most of our hosts and fans live) as well as a few other places. We want to inspire new people to attend shows and to get them hooked on our culture. They’ll meet like-minded people and stay connected via their membership.
We also know that the best source of new hosts are people who have attended at least a few house concerts. They have clearer expectations, and often have ideas of what they’d like to do differently or better. Fan memberships will also encourage and inspire some of these new fans to host shows.
Fans are now a third and equal partner in our network. Their participation is vital for our success. We aim to increase turnout and make a deeper cultural change in the world. A change that serves the art and the people.
More on this subject soon.
Thanks for being part of it.
