While artists and fans are stuck at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rootfire community wants to do our part to help fill the void. Starting immediately we will be hosting regularly scheduled Q&A’s and live sessions for artists right here on RootfireTV. 100% of donations collected during these sessions will be passed onto the artist. If you are an artist or industry leader and would like to participate, email rootfire [at] rootfire [dot] net and we’ll get back to you asap. Strength in numbers! We’re all in this together!

HOW IT WORKS:

  1. Artist goes live on their own Youtube channel
  2. Rootfire embeds the stream on our website with a DONATE button 
  3. All donations come to Rootfire’s Paypal/Venmo and 100% of it is sent to artists the following day

FAQ:

What is needed tech-wise?

Good wifi and a laptop with a built-in camera and microphone. If you have nicer audio and video gear and know how to connect it using OBS/etc, that’s great! But just a simple laptop with camera and microphone can suffice.

How long are the sessions?

Most sessions are anywhere from 30-90 minutes, flexible. 

How do donations work?

Fans can donate during your stream at Rootfire.net/tv where there’s a big green “DONATE” button. We collect via Paypal and Venmo. Rootfire staff monitors donations throughout the stream and comments “[NAME] thank you for your donation” in real time, giving artists a natural way to remind people where they can donate. Rootfire will transfer the money to you within 24 hours of your session ending.

Will this be on Youtube, Facebook, or something else?

Streams live on the artists’ own Youtube page unless otherwise specified. We provide instructions and support to setup the stream, and then we embed the artists’ stream on our website.
