How Spotify Engineered the New Music Economy - Mashable

How Spotify Engineered the New Music Economy - Mashable | Music Reviews | Scoop.it

When the New York-based band Spirit Animal released “The Black Jack White” last spring, the band’s frontman didn’t have high hopes about the streaming music service. He loves the platform and subscribes to it but didn’t think Spotify would help his band this early in its career.

Courtney Aiello's insight:

I originally subscribed to Spotify thinking it wouldn't last either, but with their user-generated playlists (something that Apple slowly erased from iTunes) it is gaining momentum. It's not suprising to learn, either, that Sean Parker was an early investor-Napster was the ancestor of Spotify. It will be interesting looking forward to see how many lesser-known bands will gain new followers from Spotify.

After reading this, it really shows the importance of social media in this generation. With so  much technology today, spotify is a great way to get you're music out there. Social medias play a huge role, In this day and age, sites like facebook, twitter, and instagram, are the sites that most people go on and retrieve daily information about music as well as many other things.
