Dear fellow music lovers. Please pull back your pledges while you still can. The caretakers of pledgemusic.com are taking your money and running off with it while the artist and listeners are left with nothing!! Revolt!!

hi Zach
thanks
when you say pull?
the option to cancel under my pledges seems to have gone.
says goto customer services etc
unless you mean tell the credit card company but payment date is many months ago.

When I say pull I do mean both. I’m in the same boat as you. Pledge over a year ago and bank/visa won’t cover the charges. Still haven’t received the product. Last option is class action lawsuit. You game!?

Hello Zach,

I know it’s so awful especially as when people are wanting to support artist they like and people are left out of pocket currently and the artist hasn’t received anything. I think many artist will also be looking to take legal action. I’m going to email again today.

Best,

Holly

Thanks for your passion to the fans Holly. It’s a shame this has happen. I thought it was a wonderful tool for the music community.

I get the impression this is beyond legal action and it is another failed company and the pledgers and artists have to sort out the aftermath mess.

You are correct pommy. I’m lucky enough the artist is making things right through their record company. I however am unable to get my money back to give to that artist. Even if a class action lawsuit was started I believe it would be a loss there even. Sad event for humanity for sure.

yes very sadly especially when it comes to music.
have another a lot worse steve vai no contact since November and you can still order if you want to! talk about worse of both worlds means new people can still lose out!

I’m not surprised. I’m reaching out to a local law firm here in upstate ny to see what can be done to shut them down. It’s wrong they are still taking in money when they can’t provide to prior comments.

Hello!

Sorry, Pledgemusic is having some trouble within the company so I'm just waiting to see how this affects my campaign.

What cover would you like?

Best,

hi holly
what a pain!.have heard mainly bad stories but some have been ok and others like bernie torme lost 16000 plus in a coma with pneumonia, terrible.

songwise I had no idea what you are into haha ! I'm a bit of a rocker but as a compromise I thought for my mother

house of the rising Sun?

if it is difficult maybe you send me some of the other covers you have done.

will leave it up you. mp3 better than a video.

hope pledge thing gets sorted out

think we as customers have all paid but I think if things go completely wrong we are covered. I do note the cancel option has gone from the orders section!

good luck with things !

hi holly
any news?
I have 2 downloads since our last message, one had a part payment and honoured the rest. most have closed their pledges to stop further new innocent pledgers getting caught up in this mess. only ones I've had nothing on are yours and steve vai who has just gone silent. bit silly as he has carelessly left his open and some items are over 100k! best to prevent trouble I say.

Hello!

Sorry I had assumed that pledge had stopped all pledges already. I will work out how to close it now. I am going to fulfil all my pledges regards of no money from pledge.

Please could you tell me which cover you would like and what email address to wetransfer.

Best,

Holly
