This year for my Birthday I would love for you to celebrate with me and donate to a good cause: Sweet Relief Musicians Fund!

This is why I care:

I am proud to announce that I am now on the board for Sweet Relief. I would be delighted if you donated to this wonderful organization!

Sweet Relief Musicians Fund helps those at the heart of the music industry: musicians. We provide financial assistance for recording artists, club and session musicians, composers, vocalists and songwriters across the country who are facing illness, disability, or age-related problems, are in dire financial need, and have nowhere else to turn

Sweet Relief Musicians Fund

Mission: Sweet Relief provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians who are facing illness, disability, or age-related problems.
Established in 1994, Sweet Relief has helped preserve our most profound art by becoming music's most compassionate and generous charity.

Sweet Relief provides financial assistance to musicians of all kinds for medical expenses, alternative therapies, prescriptions, and living expenses if the artist is unable to work. Sweet Relief also provides grants for retired or semi-retired older musicians, which helps pay living expenses.For further information or to read eligibility criteria, please go www.sweetrelief.org.

Sweet Relief was founded by Victoria Williams, and is guided by a board of directors comprised of members of the music industry. It is funded by the music community and a variety of individual donors, as well as through benefit concerts, auctions and albums.

New Media Pioneer: Greg of Vent Vox

We are devoted to the art of complaining, comparing, and discussing stuff. Being idle observers is not enough. We believe that ranting, raving, and whining is a freedom that we should all have and use often. Attitude is not necessarily a bad thing, so gather up opinions- coherent or not- and let us hear them

Q: What are your favorite blogs/audio blogs featuring new music do you like to visit?

A: I enjoy Pitchfork, Each Note Secure, and Aquarium Drunkard.

Q: What inspired you to start the site?


A: I wanted to start Ventvox.com to express my views on music as well as see the feedback that others could provide.  I’m now shocked to find that not everyone always agrees with my opinion.

Q: What do you think is the impact of blogs, internet radio, and podcasts on independent music?

A: I think blogs, Internet radio and podcsts help Independent music reach a broader audience than it previously reached.

Q: When you started your station, did you anticipate that blogs would have such an upscale trend as it does now?

A: I didn’t expect my blog to take off initially because of the vast number of like-minded thinkers.  I differentiate my blog a bit by discussing art and culture.

Q: What are the ultimate goals you wish to achieve through your site?

A: The ultimate goal for my site would to be a larger readership and the addition of more staff to contribute articles.  Making some money through ad sales would also be beneficial.
