How Music-Streaming Services Are Failing New Artists

How Music-Streaming Services Are Failing New Artists | Music Streaming | Scoop.it
What seems clear is that streaming arrangements, like those made with Spotify, are institutionalizing a marginal role for the recordings that were once major income streams for working musicians.
Nicole Beuckens's insight:

A really good source of information about how streaming services effect the artists and a better look at how artists are compensated according to how many streams they get and how popular the artist themselves are. Also has some interesting links to other articles about this topic and a few good streaming sites, including an interesting independent site that takes rare vinyls and puts them up for streaming at high quality.

Is Spotify hurting record sales? Not exactly | Music Streaming | Scoop.it

Nicole Beuckens's insight:

Source is reliable enough, though is pretty opinionated, has some good information and good points on how streaming is effecting record sales and, in turn, the artists that are making the records.

Essentially offering two different types of subscriptions, a full, more expensive, catalog of music or a smaller, cheaper, catalog containing a specific genre. (country, rock, hip-hop, etc.)

When Amazon announced its new streaming music service, it butted its way in to a room already crowded with players. Here's a quick guide to all the streaming music options that matter.
Nicole Beuckens's insight:

Just a really good, objective, look at the most popular streaming and digital services. Shows prices, features, number of songs, etc. Shows how available and convenient digital media is nowadays. So convenient it's almost illogical to even bother oneself with physical copies anymore.

In memoriam: Earbits music service will shut down June 16 | Music Streaming | Scoop.it
The dream of an independent streaming music community with no ads is about to die a quiet death. At least Earbits' version of it. L.A.-based Earbits says it will shut down its free streaming servic...
Nicole Beuckens's insight:

Reliable enough source, article about a free streaming service that lasted 4 years and wanted to help lesser known artists become more well known closing down due to lack of funds. Goes to show that just because it's free doesn't necessarily mean it'll be popular.
