Kere Buchanan kindly brought this article to my attention. Spotify’s current business model is the death knell to the efforts of independent artists (and the established ones as well in the longer run). But this article here offers a doable, plausible solution without anyone needing to sacrifice. Actually, following this reasoning the value of music could be restored. And for the sake of keeping music alive, below described easy fix seems a fair deal to me. Thanks for sharing this, Kere Buchanan! And to those of you, who love the Westcoast sound, don’t miss Kere’s excellent albums “Starting Over” and “Goodbye Yesterday”. Also great, though slightly different in style, his debut “Kerosene”.
