This article in my opinion is very interesting and formative on Spotifiy’s big move, with the benefit of both artists and fans as their target. I believe this will greatly open the market up to some hidden talent without the need of a record company . 
The surge of the article has provided many helpful insights and statistics which help wit the liability of the information, They also showed much knowledge in the marketing field of the industry , this assured me that they are experienced and reliable .
But i dont believe i have heard the news source before.

I think this is a good step forward for the music industry because it is helping to lay the foundation for taking the power back from corporations and directly into the hands of the artists. This will allow the artists to distribute their own music easier.

Authority: The article is written by Tim Ingham. When you click on his name, it offers at least 50+ articles written by him and published by the website. Although there is no bio available, I believe he still maintains credibility by the amount of articles dating back years that discuss news in the entertainment and music industry.

Objectivity: The article was entirely objective, focusing on statistics and facts for information.

Accuracy: The article is filled with correct embedded links that referenced each assertion made by the author.

Currency: The article was created in September 20, 2018. I believe this is within a relevant time period for the topic.

I believe this is a major informational resource for audio industry professionals.

Independent artist and labels no long have to use distribution service to upload to Spotify

This is article is extremely interesting. Although this is have been in beta since 2018, the attempt is to have something similar to SoundCloud, CD Baby, etc. Personally, I believe this is a good move for Spotify, in reference to being a consumer. It's unique per se because of the steps needed to have your music on that DSP. If it's anything similar to a SoundCloud, it's a takes away from rarity. However, if this happens to move past beta mode, then other DSPs like Apple Music and Google Music, may follow suit. Although Spotify will not be charging an upfront fee to place music on their platform, the other issue is how exactly will artist generate money, when they are practically getting fractions of pennies per spin.

This source appears to be reliable. It's based on out London, and has plethora of followers via Facebook and LinkedIn. Created by artist Tim Ingham. MusicBusiness Worldwide has been around since 2015. One of the contributing editors, Rhian Jones, had a live interview with Empire founder and owner Ghazi Shami.

In this article the author explains that Apple Music is interfering with all the new artists and trends , mainly to keep them from signing on with any other record labels. This enables artists full freedom with their work unlike any of record label would provide. I believe this approach by Apple is what will increase the value of music , with artists earning more from their work , in return we will see better quality music.
The source used many scenarios to prove their point on the impact on music which Apple is producing . The source also is a highly known and respected news brand for the music industry ,I trust that a lot of investigating toke place for these articles such as this one.

This could be a huge deal in the hip hop/music industry. I feel like a company like Apple signing artist could really change the landscape of the music industry.
Travis Jefferson's curator insight, April 26, 11:02 PM
Music streaming are starting to replace old-school record labels in offering advances to independent artists. With Apple signing acts, it appears as if the streaming services may become the new norm; replacing traditional record labels.
Kodie Tillman's curator insight, May 24, 7:52 PM
I think it’s great that artist have more ways they can be independent. I also think it’s good that big companies are stepping in to help these artists gain a foothold in the main stream music scene. To own everything you have created is a beautiful thing.

Christopher Harveys insight:
My opinion on the content of this article is that their approach to supporting the artists more on media sharing platforms by introducing a tipping and investment option for fans will definitely improve the market. When I think about it , i have no doubt i would support my favorite artists with tips towards their next project or even investing in them and profiting off of their success. The concept excites me and I truly hope this comes into affect. 
The liability on the source of the article is my opinion rated highly reliable due to the fact that they involved detailed knowledge and statistics into the article proving their experience in the field of the subject. The source is also a major source for the music industry , they are the go to for information in the music industry.
caelan's curator insight, March 22, 5:25 PM
i Think its import for people to start investing in artist because it could boos the whole industry and  could help boos the artist and if they blow up then the money is double or even better which just creates a better environment  
Rolling stone is the biggest new reporting crew for the music industry and its very reliable

We’re living in an age of inequality. Music struggles to reflect it.

We’re living in an age of inequality. Music struggles to reflect it. | New Music Industry | Scoop.it
Popular music has always delivered social critique. But it’s struggled to grapple with the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis.

Christopher Harveys insight:
This article really got me thinking when they brought up the issues and how music responds to them. When the country is  economically low , artists tend to brag more about money and other possessions . It is very unlikely anymore that we would encounter music that talks about present solutions. I too agree that most f this issue is caused by the labels and artist not wanting to offend or loose a specific audience due to their opinion. This is a major change since the 90’s in the music industry.
The source of this article provided in depth explanations to each of their statements and followed up with examples to make their point more clear , the report is convincing to me and reliable .
The source is of a news brand that I have not heard of yet there seem very knowledgeable with their information.

When will musicians see the fruits of their labor? It's disappointing to have systems in place to keep you from benefiting from what you created.  
Destiny Acevedo's curator insight, November 11, 2018 9:01 PM
I'm not to sure about the music industry reflecting on society's economic inequality. I've never heard of it. But, I do think that music about having money can influence and change a persons perspective on pursuing their dreams and career, motivating them to earn money. 
Tee Wright's curator insight, November 14, 2018 10:33 AM
Pop music has always had it's way of connecting with the world even thru our toughest time in our economy. In the 2008 music market crashes due to the recession, not only did  millions of people lose their jobs but also their homes. Pop music kept the people sprit lifted through tough times.

Christopher Harveys insight:
I agree with this article that web piracy does not affect music sales, if marketed right , an artist can actually benefit more from platforms like Spotify and Pandora by advertisement .
The source of this article in my opinion is very reliable because BBC news is a well respected news name in the audio arts industry although i do believe they could of added more statistics and observations to their article to better make their point .
Shakim Pratt's curator insight, February 14, 2016 1:31 PM

Previously to me reading this article I thought that music sales declined because of free streaming services.
