Indie artist delivers an impassioned and smart defense of Spotify

Instead of going through a major label to distribute work on Spotify, David McMillin’s band pays a distributor called TuneCore $50 per album per year to distribute the band’s records on Spotify and nearly two dozen other streaming sites and online music stores. The band made $1,359.01 in royalties from 284,575 streams in Spotify, which is vastly more per stream than what many major artists receive if they rely on their labels to distribute their work on streaming services. – Brad Reed, BGR
