Soon after Cy Rawls, a music scene staple in NC and friend of the band, began his struggle with brain cancer, Cytunes was conceived of by Chris Rossi (Spacelab Studio) to help with mounting hospital bills. After Rawls passed away in October 2008, the concept of Cytunes changed; it became a site where musicians can upload music (Superchunk, The Rosebuds, Polvo, and many more artists have exclusive material on the site), and fans can purchase music with 100% of the proceeds going to brain cancer research. Johnson has released music on the site via The Flute Flies, a studio band which consists of him and Ivan Howard (The Rosebuds), and Zeno Gill (Pox World Empire), and realized that Cytunes was the most meaningful place for Schooner's newest recordings. The band began talking with Chris Rossi about selling download codes at their shows for Duck Kee Sessions and incorporating friends' original artwork to buy via codes as well.
