Podington Bear shares new album via Free Music Archive

Highly regarded by creative professionals and amateurs, The Free Music Archive is featuring the latest album from Podington Bear on their site.  This profile and interview  illuminates the decision to release work in this way, and expands on the history of the artist Chad Crouch, known here as Podington Bear.

Why did you use the CC BY-NC license for this project?

It seemed like a reasonable thing to do.  It’s like the Velveteen Rabbit:  For me the music becomes more real if it’s not just heard, but played with and cared for.

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”

“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.

“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.”
