About

Radio Freedom is a compilation album, featuring twenty political/protest songs in all styles of music: metal, folk, hip hop, and more.

The long-term aim of the project is to establish a worker-owned, for-profit record label.

Politically-aware musicians often have two choices: make money for a company that goes against everything they believe in, or go 'DIY' and live in poverty.

Musicians shouldn't have to choose between making a difference and making a living.

The musicians on Radio Freedom will get a percentage which is well over the industry norm.

The funding goal represents the cost of mastering the songs, pressing the CDs, shipping, and Kickstarter fees.

The CDs will be manufactured by Austep Music, an environmentally-friendly music printing company.

Following are a few of the songs that will be on the album:

The complete track listing (20 songs) is as follows (this isn't necessarily the order they'll be in on the CD):

Cursed Arrows: Sorrow

Marty Moran: Refugee Song

Test Their Logik : Tables Are Turnin'

War On Women : YDTMHTL

Time : Break the State

Lee Reed : ACAB

Fortunate Fall : Wealth In Chains

Tracey Curtis : Shell Shock

Jamey P : Freedom or the Flames

Sihasin : Move Along

Lizzy Nunnery and Vidar Norheim: Poverty Knocks

Culture Shock : Doesn't Work For Me

Verbal Warning - Cowboy Nation

PedAgree Skum - Meathook

Unwoman - The Future, the Boot

Simon Snaize - Lift You Up

Power Struggle - Hustisya Para Sa Desparecidos

Swill and the Swaggerband - In the Breeze

Jacquie Lomas - Like an Empire

The Barefoot Bandit - Floods


STRETCH GOALS

AU$3870 - The CD will come in a 2-panel wallet/sleeve made with 100% recycled paper, rather than 85%.

AU$4044 The CD will come in a 4-panel wallet/sleeve made with 100% recycled paper.

AU$4714 - The CD will come in a 4-panel wallet/sleeve with a 6-panel booklet, made with 100% recycled paper.

Risks and challenges

All the music is already recorded and contracts signed.

I have already been given quotes for the costs of mastering, CD production, and shipping.

The only risk is if there's a sudden price increase. If this happens, I will have to look for another supplier to work with.
