Efforts to get critical humanitarian aid to Ukraine are underway, and many in the music industry are banding together to help the nation's artistic community in need.
An open-source Google Sheet containing a list of Ukranian artists and music labels has been widely circulated with the help of public suggestions. The header of the shared document issues a call to action encouraging supporters to back the Ukrainian artists and labels via Bandcamp.
At the time of writing, the list sits at a combined 130 labels and artists of all stylistic varieties from techno to ambient jazz.
As If-Only notes, Bandcamp is viewed as a favorable channel when it comes to directly supporting artists. Artists on the platform generally retain 82% of the funds donated on the platform, and that share is even higher on Bandcamp Fridays—usually the first Friday in the calendar month—when Bandcamp waives commission fees.
