Streaming services like Spotify are fantastic. They are rather inexpensive and even though I’m still purchasing music just like I did before subscribing, I use Spotify more and more every day. They have great apps on all important platforms and that often leaves iTunes closed in the dock when casually listening to music or creating a playlist for my workout. Spotify just offers a huge variety on every genre and even on the go, I have all that music on the iPhone in my pocket and no matter what my mind is up to — in over 15 million songs there is always one that fits the mood I’m in. But artists aren’t that happy with streaming services. The revenue out of a single stream is tremendously small.
The article below explains, why supporting an artist can not be done by solely listening to his songs on streaming services like Spotify. If you really want to promote good music and support artists, you have to buy their releases. No matter if it’s in physical media or online on iTunes or any other store: go get purchasing.
