Weathervane Members have exclusive access to the audio files from Shaking Through episodes

to learn from, remix and discuss.



What can I do here?



We have a catalog of nearly 40 tracks from incredible independent artists from across the country and the world at large. They run the gamut from folk to rock to RnB. You can listen to all the tracks on our episodes page. 



In every episode we tell the story of the song from 2 perspectives: The artist and the production team. Each story reveals insights about the creative process, and highlights the craft, techniques and processes that go into recorded music. 



We release the raw audio from each song for members to remix, and we provide space for people to share and talk about each other's remixes. It's a unique opportunity to get hands on experience and quality feedback on your work. 





Shaking Through is produced by Weathervane Music, a

non-profit whose mission is to advance independent music and the community that surrounds it.



Our vision is for a healthier music ecosystem in which artists and audiences are equally engaged, equally important, and equally committed to the creation of music in our culture





SHaking through creates



Shaking Through is FREE for the artists we select. We give them two full days to in the studio, away from other pressures of the music industry, and connect them with amazing collaborators and resources. We've found over and over again that this yields some of the best work of their careers. 


We take every aspect of the process and share it with our members. Curious about the artists vision? We share that. Want to know how the song was engineered? We share that. Want to take the raw audio we created to see how the song sounded at the moment we were recording it? Well you get the picture....




We firmly believe that no one can, or should, create in a vacuum. It's our goal not just to share these resources but to give you the opportunity to discuss them with each other. You've proven excellent at giving constructive feedback and raising the bar for community members all over the world.
