Sarah Saturday is an accomplished musician, web designer, and Warped Tour veteran, but most notably she’s the founder of the Earn It Yourself movement. As staunch believers in the DIY ethos, we’ve followed the evolution of EIY and were psyched to finally catch up with Sarah to talk about the project. Earn It Yourself, or EIY, is an ethical ideology used by Saturday in her work with alternative and DIY musicians throughout the country, to encourage these aspiring artists to develop communal roots and to “do the right thing” in regards to their motives and business practices. Since its inception in 2006, EIY has evolved from an online forum and resource to a full blown movement that includes workshops at Warped Tour and a number of local EIY chapters across the country.
Find the interview with Sarah below that covers her background, the EIY spirit, its connection with Warped Tour and where Earn It Yourself is headed in 2012.
