We help musicians make it.

Help us preserve America’s musical heritage through our partnerships with elderly artists, because what is worth keeping is worth passing on. Supporters like you make it possible for artists to live in safety and comfort while sharing their music with the world.

Without your assistance, many of these artists would be silenced with the passing of time. Music Maker works tirelessly to meet musicians’ needs, elevate their careers, and document their work for future generations. With your gift we can care for our old and educate our young, all growing stronger together.

Listener’s Circle

Members of the Listener’s Circle receive a limited edition compilation album bi-monthly for a sustaining donation of $30 per month or more. Compilations are designed exclusively for Circle members. Circle compilations feature unreleased tracks, previews of upcoming albums, and interesting musical material from the Music Maker stacks. Each album comes hand-numbered along with a note from Tim. As part of a new addition to the program, you’ll also receive all our current album releases each year (between 2 and 4 CDs.)
