Why subscribe?

Mixtape is a human curated ten song playlist delivered each Sunday. 

Why ten songs? 

For me, ten is the perfect number of songs in a mix. You can say a lot with ten songs. And you can do it in 30-45 minutes. 

Each week you'll get a Spotify link and a ten song track listing based on a different theme, from instrument and genre to mood, location, and date. 

The mixtape newsletter also comes with in-depth liner notes, giving you insight into this week’s themes, song choices, or mood.

Plus, as a subscriber you’ll also get regular “song of the week” updates mid-week, to make sure your ears are never lacking in listening material.

How can I read a subscriber update?

You can read a subscriber-only update in email, or on the website. If you click through from your email you will be automatically logged in. If you come to the website separately, you can log in through the Membership page.

What do I get when I subscribe?

Fifty-two mixtapes a year, for starters, plus the good feeling that comes with knowing you are helping to support a writer you hopefully quite like.

Can I forward the emails?

When it comes to the free posts, spread them as far and as wide as you like, on whatever platform you currently prefer. Occasionally forwarding subscribers-only emails is just fine too.
