The top tier of online music streaming platforms is getting some fresh competition, as the world’s first philanthropic streaming service, Cadence & Cause, has officially thrown its hat into the ring. Joining the ranks of Pandora, Soundcloud, and Spotify, this groundbreaking new service aims to connect fans with their favorite musicians through channels that have previously been untouched. The service, which was announced earlier this year
, connects music with charity, giving artists a way to share merchandise, signed items, exclusive music, and even experiences, while fans have the opportunity to purchase these listed items. Each artist is associated with a charitable organization or cause of their choice, and all of the earnings from the artist’s listings are donated to their respective charity.
Now that Cadence & Cause has officially launched, the streaming platform has thirteen artists on board officially, with more to come. Artists that are currently associated with Cadence & Cause include The 1975, who are donating a signed 8.5 x 11 photo card and the first press vinyl addition of their debut LP, 1975
, in support of clean drinking water, Mimic, who is donating an unreleased song in support of clean drinking water, and Bobby Nourmand, who is donating a remix of an exclusive song in support of adoption services for sheltered animals.
