The Nature of Truth
The nature of truth is a deeply personal perspective Songwriters share through the songs we write and the music we play with our fellow musicians.
The Nature of Truth is the title of a proposed series of broadcast radio programs featuring donations of music downloads and statements of support by recording artists willing to take a stand on environmental justice, human rights and freedom of speech.
We are here to support noncommercial radio stations because of the recurring threats to eliminate federal funding of public media.
We produce Community Digital Albums to generate new revenue for community and public radio stations.
Our first episode features five recording artists who contributed music downloads to support Camp of the Sacred Stones. Sihasin, Malcolm Holcolmbe, Jess Klein, Jared Tyler and Barbara K are also contributing to The Nature of Truth.
Community Digital Albums
Community Digital Albums are public service projects for songwriters and recording artists. Proceeds from Community Digital Albums benefit both public radio stations and community organizations.
Broadcast Radio Programs
The Nature of Truth project is designed to produce one community digital album each month along with an accompanying series of four 28 minute radio programs featuring 5 artists and 7 minute radio shows featuring one artist.
The digital albums and radio shows are designed to establish constituency awareness of the project’s goals in a consistent and ever expanding manner.
The Nature of Truth radio programs have a three-fold purpose:
- recordings artists provide music downloads, creating the basis of a new revenue stream to support noncommercial radio, public media and community organizations;
- noncommercial radio stations and media organizations engage The Nature of Truth to develop a new revenue streams;
- raising public awareness of our public airwaves role in fostering freedom of speech, cultural diversity, and supporting public media through the power of music.
