“The rise of streaming music services like Pandora, Spotify and Beats Music has been a boon for listeners, serving up songs for a modest monthly fee or, with ads, free. But their effect on artists, especially those with smaller audiences, has been less positive.
But rather than fight what looks like an inexorable shift in how consumers listen to music, some independent record labels and their artists are embracing the streaming revolution — but on their own terms.”
My son’s a big fan of Other People artists, especially Darkside, and has been a subscriber for some time. $50 a year for as much music as they release is a very good deal. I’d expect to see more labels do this.
