With the sales on vinyl up 725%, surprisingly enough this isnt a lot. Vinyls are only 2% of purchases in music, with the highest digital and online streaming services.

Alessandro Marquez's curator insight, October 12, 2013 2:43 PM
The matter of the fact is, online music streaming services, such as Spotify and many others, doesn’t pay artist as fairly. Though, it may be a harsh reality, on the bright side, their music is being heard, and on the other side of things, artist are gaining new fans and new opportunities because of these new online music streaming services, because their music is simply but a click away, and anyone with internet access has the ability to listen to it. There’s still a grey area in all of this, but most importantly, their music is being heard, and there’s plenty of other sources for artist to make profit off of. But, artist should appreciate the fact that there music is being heard, because your fans are priceless.
Bianca Brown's curator insight, October 13, 2013 5:46 PM

Spotify is good for letting the music industry for selling and listening numbers , instead of looking for social media webistes like facebook and/or twitter. Some artists do not have any knowledge about selling their music and knowing if it is good are not the billboard. Spotify can make you or break you for sells but sometimes this website maybe for availablity.

travis eskridge's curator insight, October 13, 2013 8:37 PM

the article talks about how succesful downloadable sites have become and how they play an important roll in the industry sites like napster and spotify.

Pros:you could receive revenue from this as artist everytime your music is downloaded.

Cons: if your and indie artist you wouldnt be able to live off of downloads and it would make it hard to have a stable career.
