Kristin Hersh forms CASH Music: an interactive mp3 site

Posted December 5th, 2007 by eric

Sometimes Throwing Muse and longtime solo artist Kristin Hersh has created CASH Music (the acronym stands for Coalition of Artists & Stake Holders), which is a “new music business model” wherein artists post free mp3’s in multiple formats for listeners to critique, remix, or even produce. Hersh is no stranger to this process, as I was a member of her Throwing Music community a decade ago, and she would post demos and works in progress for a monthly subscription fee. The new system differs in that the demos are free each month with an optional subscription section, which comes with a few merchandising perks, including Hersh’s next full-length prior to its official release.
