Show Up Public's insight:

#haveyaheard Groupon like show coupons could be the crippling blow to  independent artists who largely depend on gigs as their bread and butter? A lot of fans can not differentiate between the resources provided to larger acts from independent acts. If larger acts who can afford to discount discounts make this a norm than more and more fan will demand if not expect the same from smaller groups. This is an assumption but I think a rather pragmatic conclusion. It has already shown itself to be true regarding streaming and music sales. Why should one think differently in regard to live shows?

I would suggest rather, not discounting tickets but discounting the experience of going out. More later with #yaheardapp

The Future of the Music Industry: Selling Audiences to Advertisers

The Future of the Music Industry: Selling Audiences to Advertisers | 1K True Fan Flight Plan | Scoop.it

Ad-supported and subscription streaming services have tripled revenue paid to artists and labels, growing from seven percent to 21 percent of digital revenues in the last four years, according to the RIAA. Strengthened by investments of more than $432 million dollars just last year, streaming radio services like Pandora and Spotify are booming, while broadcast radio struggles. And many of broadcast radio’s top ad-sellers have jumped ship to these Internet radio companies, helping to capture the dollars now fueling an important growth category for the music industry. 


Via Pierre Priot
Show Up Public's insight:

"If artists and labels go on the offensive, fully embracing streaming services (who help replace diminishing MP3 and CD revenue), and also innovate by developing audiences themselves through their own branded offerings, they will exert far more control over two critical assets that advertisers want: Large audiences and big data."


Stop the madness. And stop complaining about streaming. There is another source of revenue independent artists with a sizable audience can benefit from. This can range from 100s, 1,000s to 10,000s of fans which is very doable for any hard-working and consistent independent band or musician. Advertising doesn't just mean Coca-Cola and MickeyD's, but local businesses and businesses/organizations you consume or support yourself.


Just a thought and I'm thinking.

Yet another area to be aware of when it comes to your privacy.

Taylor Porter's curator insight, October 14, 2014 9:02 PM

According to the information in the article, streaming services with ad's and commercial's have increased the profits of artists and labels. This article seems to be very credible.

Josh Granese's curator insight, November 4, 2014 10:20 AM

This article is essentially about how online streaming (i.e: Pandora, Spotify, Grooveshark, etc.) is gaining a LOT of following and ruining FM/AM radio stations. We learn that more money is generated through this online streaming and that it is making FM/AM obsolete. Which in all honesty makes sense; since I moved down to Florida, I have yet to listen to one radio station. Even when my phone dies, I just shut my radio off because I feel as if though listening to the radio at that point is pointless because the music I personally like is never played. Maybe that is the cause of such a decline in listening, because it's not the people's choice of what is played. When the choice is put into the hands of the listeners and not the broadcasters it adds an entire new element which is why online streaming is so popular.

This article is promising because it affirms that the music fan has not been cheapened along with the idea of selling music. People are real and so are the one's who make and love the music. Often we musicians claim EXCLUSIVE CONTENT, but the results are a bit lack luster.

Where is the "D" in EDM?

Where is the "D" in EDM? | 1K True Fan Flight Plan | Scoop.it

"... I’d venture that just because audiences are buying and listening to dance music in droves doesn’t mean they’re necessarily dancing to dance music..."

Show Up Public's insight:

Ditto!! Cool Op-ed piece by Jason King here, originally titled "How bottle service has changed pop music for the worse".  I might add that EDM has created a sort of uniformed way of dancing. Literally everyone is positioned facing the DJ and jumping in unison up and down like that Massa but with less group synergy. They continue to jump until given the cue to raise their hands in the air, like if on a roller-coaster ride. The arrangements of EDM is very formulaic and much like a roller-coaster. What I miss in dance music when shared with others is meeting strangers on the dance floor and having a moment to dance together. Or closing my eyes to dance with whatever spirits are in the room. The bass "rhythms "missing from EDM are replaced with the step 1- work up, step 2-let go, step 3-breakdown, and repeat. It unfortunately leaves a predictable bitter taste in my mouth. NO patience for a true journey orchestrated by a good DJ's (Carlos Mena, Osulande, DJ Rimarkable). I actually like Skrillex and some other EDM producers, not hating...just saying the D in EDM stands for dance, but there isn't much of that happening.

Guest post by Nick Hardy, first published on Sinizine.net. I grew up in Memphis, Tenn. and was involved in the punk scene from my first Rancid tape stolen from my high school. I had my crappy ska band and many of my friends had just as horrible punk bands. During the mid 90's Memphis was booming with amazing punk and indie shows coming through venues like Barristers, The Antenna, New Daisy, The Map Room…the list goes on. You could bet your balls there was going to be local support for a national tour coming through town. While the national bands...
