Equal & Transparent Streaming For All – A Proposal For Our Industry

Another major win for the industry that I feel is all too often overlooked by larger entities, is Bandcamp. $97 Million USD has flowed through Bandcamp’s platform to date (When I initially wrote this piece in December, it was $92M; a $5M increase in just 3 months!). However, I am constantly battling and educating labels on what Bandcamp is and why we should have our artists’ music there. Here we have a platform in which an artist said to me and her label recently “Why would we prevent a fan from giving $100 to my album if they want to? Why limit the price point of downloads to $9.99?” – Emily White, Whitesmith Entertainment via Hypebot
