Sooner or later, it all comes crashing down.

May, 2012 - Sad Steve was founded in January, 2008, to prove to music labels that building a successful distribution channel need not be difficult. I built Sad Steve in less than a month during Christmas break of my junior year of college, and continued working on it sporadically until graduation. Despite my limited coding ability at the time, and complete lack of knowledge of the music industry, Sad Steve had fast, steady growth. I thought it was cool, and many of you did, too. Even more importantly, I proved that if a nobody like me could build a pretty cool music site, so could the music industry.

Upon graduating from college in 2009, I tried to pursue Sad Steve more seriously. Unfortunately, this was unsuccessful for a multitude of reasons and I instead pursued opportunities with other companies.

Despite not actively working on Sad Steve for a while, I kept the site online. But now I'm turning it all off. If you'd like to reach out, e-mail my personal address:

Thank you all for being fans of the site for so long. It was a great run.

Stay fly.
