I just saw via a Daring Fireball post that a music exec says the music from Spotify is –
The income from Spotify is MICROSCOPIC – LAUGHABLE – PATHETIC.
Yet how come all the rap acts/bands and CDs I saw and purchased in 2010 were a direct result of me checking them out on Spotify?
And all the acts I want to see in 2011 at gigs and festivals have all been on rotation via my Spotify at some point.
I buy more music and see more gigs because of Spotify.
Oh and if your music is rubbish I will find out on Spotify before wasting my time on your over priced CD and waaayy over-priced digital album.
Step up or step off.
