    Anyone else didn’t feel bad like at all? That’s music for you, you do it because you love it not because you need to get paid more. And artists barely received a penny for radio play and that’s exactly what Spotify is doing. So you could discover artists and support them via merch and concerts. If your fav artist broke, support them.

    Aloe Blacc’s, ‘I Need a Dollar brought a tear to my eye.. Shouldn’t producing music be approached more as a D.I.Y. project? “DAVE GROHL! … Please help save us from ourselves!”

    It sounds like the problem isn’t streaming, it is the artist’s deal with the record label. some unknown band can make 20k from a joke album…

    More musicians need to have channels like Paypal or Patreon for fans to give them money directly so they no longer have to depend on the table scraps the industry doles out. The music industry won’t change without sufficient financial pressure, so the more artists that go independent and fully own their own rights through funding their own production efforts, the more leverage they’ll have. Plus there are tons of people with a few spare bucks to help out their favorite artists.

    When Napster was around me and people I knew bought lot more music on CD or LP than before and after. But the story has always been told that Napster took money away from artists.

    Apple Music pays artists the highest rates. If you actually care stop using Spotify which pays the cheapest because they leveraged their 1st place position!
