Amanda Palmer's recent presentation at TEDTalks got me really thinking about music as it connects to other people on a personal level. We are now in a time when people can support artists directly. Labels are becoming irrelevant. Thanks to Pierre Priot for sharing this.
"Pierre Priot's insight:
Music today is free (or at least can be if you want it to), and yet people are still willing to pay for it (up to 64%, according to this poll). The real change is people now want to be sure their money goes to the artists, not the industry."
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.
