CASH Music: Different Currencies, Different Values


CASH Music is a nonprofit organization building open-source tools and services to benefit artists and music organizations. It’s our belief that the need for technology should never get in the way of promotion, distribution, or support of great music.

Our goal is to help people in music translate inspiration into sustainability. We do this by working directly with artists, managers, and labels to build custom projects that contribute to a larger open-source codebase.

In our featured projects you'll see tools we've built like music streamers and download codes, but you'll also get a feel for how these tools work together to redefine what it means to release music.

CASH Music will provide the knowledge, the expertise, and the platform to allow all members of the music community to express their strengths and expand their creativity.

Staff & Board

We are a small but dedicated group of people working on a largely volunteer basis. CASH Music began with Kristin Hersh, Donita Sparks, Robert Fagan, and Billy O'Connell and has since grown into the organization it is today. The names rotate in and out, but there's a pretty constant group of Jesse von Doom, Jack McKenna, Justin Miranda, John Studer, and Peter Landry.
