Cover Lay Down is proudly ad-free and non-profit, but effective music hosting isn’t free. The bandwidth it takes to serve our growing readership runs well over one terabyte of data each month – enough songs to fill over a hundred iPhones – and you just can’t get that sort of pipeline without paying for it. And having technical support at our fingertips means ensuring that the blog, and its coversongs, are here when you need them.

In other words: like public radio, Cover Lay Down needs your support to survive.

If you like what you hear, please consider clicking on the button below to toss a few bucks our way. Your generous donation will go to defray expenses for stable web hosting through BigScoots. Because you’re so awesome, we’ll even send you a great mixtape with an otherwise unblogged set of favorite coverfolk of 2014, with 35 new covers from Pieta Brown, Chris Smither, Marissa Nadler, Kate Rusby, Sara and Sean Watkins, John Vanderslice and more. And you will have our undying appreciation and support, for helping us help the word spread, and the artists survive.

Please give what you can…and thanks for your support!
