If STREAMING has put MUSIC CREATORS in a STRAIGHT-JACKET
Then CROWD MUSIC is the way to SET THEM FREE
THE PROBLEM is AWARENESS
The Average Music Listener CARES, but doesn’t KNOW that there’s a problem.
Crowd is a COMMUNITY of Music Creators & Music Listeners
Crowd Music benefits Artists, Songwriters, Producers, Studio Musicians, Record Labels, Publishers, and even rewards FANS
WHY is there a NEED for Crowd Music?
Without Songwriters… Artists & Fans have No New Songs.
While it may never reach that full extreme, the fact remains that since 1999, the number of Full-Time Songwriters has plummeted.
The Economics are simple…
If someone doesn’t pay you for the work you do, you can’t support yourself or your family.
A handful of creatives still make good money, but creating music has essentially become a “part time hobby” for the vast majority seeking a career in music.
As a Music LISTENER, would you rather have song choices from 300 Songwriters, or 30,000?
Not paying Songwriters benefits Fans financially in the short term, but hurts them in the long term. The problem is REAL for music creators, but largely invisible to music listeners.
Artists (in theory) can gain exposure by giving away music, and make money by touring, selling merchandise, and building a brand. For a very small fraction of Artists, this is actually true.
However, the lack of physical sales has hurt Producers, Sound Engineers, Studio Musicians, Labels, Publishers, and the majority of Artists, (from New Artists to Legacy Artists). Even the biggest name Artists have felt the pinch of the current system.
Creatives need, and deserve, to make a fair living.
The IRONY of the situation is this…
As music listeners, we ALL appreciate the VALUE music brings to our lives.
As Consumers, we gladly pay for value, whether it’s $3 for a cup of coffee, or $1 for an EXCLUSIVE song by our Favorite Artist that we can own for a lifetime.
However, when Artists fall prey to the belief that giving away 100% of their music as “Free Samples” is the only way to get heard, they end up destroying the value of the very thing they’ve poured their heart and soul into creating.
SOLUTION: CROWD MUSIC
A platform unlike any other where Fans (the Crowd) support exclusive music by buying it.
- Pay Songwriters & Artists Fairly (leading to more work for Producers & Studio Musicians)
- Reward Fans to help grow the Crowd, while paying referral fees to promote exclusive music.
- Crowd Music allows Artists to choose which songs to make exclusive, and for how long.
CROWD MUSIC is creating a New Ecosystem that ADDS revenue to the current industry model. It assures all of us, as Listeners, a future where a growing number of creators can pursue their passions and continue to bring us great music as a full time career.
It really comes down to an AWARENESS of the problem.
