If streaming is so good for artists why is it that artists that control their own recordings opt to “opt out” of streaming services?
Now Taylor Swift. This story is blowing up big time. Expect the streaming services and their record company allies to “activate” their shills against Taylor Swift in the next couple of days. This is what they do every time a prominent artist speaks out.
Watch this space here cause as that happens, this time we are gonna call them out.
The only reason that the major record labels and big indies supported streaming is because THEY ALL GOT EQUITY IN SPOTIFY. Did other public advocates of streaming also accept monetary compensation? As noted in previous articles on the Trichordist it is becoming apparent that there are a lot of folks posing as “disinterested” parties that had a financial interest in the success of Spotify. That is why we can’t wait for the Spotify IPO. It will reveal who got paid off. Though it’s doubtful that commercial bribery statutes will apply in most cases, expect some artist lawsuits against their labels. The labels after all took something of monetary value (equity) against artists albums without counting these revenue produced by these albums.
On the bright side. Maybe the idiots who couldn’t do simple math and got us into this mess will finally lose their jobs. See article below
