The Standing "O" Project
Welcome to the online community where you can discover and enjoy the best in roots and folk music. Get to know artists up close and personal. Listen to over 150 interviews with the top singer/songwriters of our time.
This is a much needed new business model for music––one that actually helps musicians earn a living. Every month we give a full 50% of the membership revenue back to the musicians who share their music and help build the community. This money goes directly to the musicians––not to big record labels or publishers. The rest keeps this site growing and keeps public radio’s premier music and interview show, Art of the Song Creativity Radio, on the air.
Enjoy a great listening experience, AND feel good as you improve the lives of musicians who are out there making a difference in the world.

Ratings and Reviews
Easily support your favorite indie!
Standing “O” is a great collective of artists, fans and tastemakers helping independent and eclectic artists. You’ll find songs from great songwriters and interviews with major artists telling about their craft with the full archive of the public radio show “The Art of the Song.” Previously, the service was browser based only and not easy to navigate with a mobile. Now you can find all your artist easily and stream their music knowing that they’ll be compensated at a rate that far surpasses mainstream streaming outlets. They call it “Fair Trade Streaming.” I call it right!
Hopefully they’ll add a user generated playlist function at some point. But for now it’s a great music discovery tool and destination point for collections of songs by Standing “O” affiliated artists.

Standing “O” Ap is a great way to explore the world of singer/songwriters. This app is an extension of The Standing “O” Project which truly is one of the best organizations that deeply cares about singer/songwriters. I am proud to say that I.
