It sucks being in a band. No, no, playing music and the groupies seem great, but updating all your web presences one by one with your new songs or videos must be a drag. BandPage Connect wants to make it as easy as Guitar Hero.

Music Streaming Through Tidal- What You Need to Know

Chris Loaf's curator insight, August 14, 10:14 AM

Critics are already saying that J-Zays Tidal is going to flop. Asking for 20 dollars a month for clearer music? whats with wrong with how the music sounds today. 

Orlin Zlatkov Sofroniev's curator insight, August 14, 12:36 PM

I decided to go further and learning more about Tidal because of the media interest and controversies surrounding it. One of the pluses in subscribing is the quality of streaming which is proved to be as good as in CD albums. Also the fact that more and more successful artist are investing their products only with Tidal and taking out from other streaming media is making a shift and drawing in a larger audience.

What I consider as a drawback is the fact that its the highest charges on the marker and it's obligatory paid service, despite the 7-day free trial, when there are more successful streaming services which are optional. Furthermore, having in mind the controversies around the small amount of subscribers and the success of the service. 

Ananzia's curator insight, August 15, 10:33 AM

I feel that tidal is a good music service but its expensive they should make the price lower. I did a free trial on it when it came out and the quality of music is good.

Good. Perhaps when they're writing their settlement check for $50m they'll be reminded that pesky things like copyright matter. I don't understand why people/companies don't ever seem to learn that you can't keep ignoring the rights of artists and other rights holders without consequence.

Musician Uses Crowdfunding To Buy Back Her Music From Label

Musician Uses Crowdfunding To Buy Back Her Music From Label | The Music Is Enough | Scoop.it

Amanda Zelina is a self-described “Antique hunter/Artist/Writer/Avid vinyl collector” but she’s best known by musical alias, The Coppertone, and has launched a new campaign via crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to ‘Help Free The Coppertone’ from her current recording contract by raising the necessary funds to buy back her catalogue from her former record label so that she can forge ahead and release new music.

Crowd-funding your way out of your label deal. I'm remember fantasying this over a Vietnamese lunch, it's now being done!

Aubrey Van Assche's curator insight, November 10, 2013 3:42 PM

I think this is an incredible article that shows what musicians can do with crowdfunding. In order to buy back the rights to her songs and herself as a musician, a Canadian artist decided to use crowdfunding by offering things to her fans like skype sessions, hand-made guitars, hand-written lyrics, behind-the-scenes photos from the studio, etc. This is a great way for musicians to reach their goals, as most music lovers are more than happy to help their favorite bands and see a part of their world. Music lovers are notoriously obsessive. 

 

I added this to my collection of scoops to give an example of successful crowdfunding in music (she hasn't reached her goal yet, but she's well on her way, and doing a great job of offering unique gifts to her fans).
