What artists are saying

 

“I was completely unprepared for what a joyful experience that would be. Wow! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to almost 700 people who tuned in from all over the world for my show today. Dancing, playing along with me, laughing, holding up signs, chatting, sharing and being together. I would have never believed this could have felt so cool. Usually on stage, I stare into the darkness. But here, I see everyone up close, and a glimpse into THEIR lives. It was very moving.”

“My online shows at Side Door have been as real and connected and visceral and fun as any show I have ever done. It’s like the future just poured itself into our laps. Thanks Side Door, for helping me be with the people. It’s a freaking oasis, and one that I suspect will last far beyond our current moment.”

“Thanks to the Side Door team, I’ve still been able to reach my followers, play shows and make some money. No sketchy fees or catches. It’s time for musicians to drop the unsustainable, free stream trend. Luckily, Side Door built a way for us to do that.”
