When you purchase from the Joyful Noise website you are directly supporting the artists and people responsible for creating these albums. Joyful Noise is not just a random retailer... We are a group of about 10 people who work directly with the artists to help create the very albums you are purchasing. Every release on our site is the result of a partnership between us and the folks who made the music.
When you purchase an album from our site, it comes from us. Orders are shipped to you from our headquarters in Indiana, packaged by the very people who helped bring these albums into the world. And 100% of your money goes to support that album.
By contrast, if you order from an Amazon-like retailer, the people who benefit are the middlemen. The artist/label only receive about 50% of the money you pay for a record... which means the artist walks away with a fraction of the money.
Every dime of profit we receive is split 50/50 with our artists. Ordering direct is the most effective way to get money into the hands of these amazing musicians, and keep this crazy label going.
Thank you for your support! xo JNR
ANOTHER WAY YOU CAN SUPPORT...
If you're a believer in the cause, and want to help us continue to do the crazy stuff we do, please consider becoming a VIP Member.
In the age of free digital music, JNR survives because of VIP Memberships. By becoming a VIP for $5 / month you'll get a slew of perks including free downloads, access to exclusive limited vinyl, and much more. We in turn use the funds to pay for fundamental operating costs so the artists ultimately don't have to chip in for things like utilities, rent, packaging materials, humble staff wages, and other things. This gives us the freedom to treat our artists fairly, and release amazing music with less of an eye on financial viability. VIP Membership allows us to focus on quality of art over commerce, which is how it should be in a creative business.
