Inspired Ground – Austin Initiative | Musicians

Music is

essential business

The Inspired Ground Austin Initiative is a direct sponsorship platform created especially for Austin-area musicians and music production professionals who have turned to cyber busking as a result of the shutdowns.

This Initiative facilitates direct patronage of musical performance and tutorial videos produced by members of Austin’s music community for publication on Inspired Ground’s YouTube Channel, opening the door to:

Video-monetization*
A larger peer-to-peer donor pool
Grow fan-base and networks
Exposure on a dedicated channel

*Decisions about what videos can and cannot be monetized remains at YouTube’s sole discretion and Inspired Ground has no control over any copyright claims that may be triggered by a particular video and limit or prohibit monetization.
