I just want you guys to know that the multiple *years* I've had my music on Spotify and iTunes have still made me less money than the first two weeks of the same albums on Bandcamp.

Please support artists directly if you can.


By "less" I also mean something along the lines of "about a ratio of 1/100 or so".

@Lystrialle Incredible. Thanks for sharing. This is truly a message for the world.

I die a bit, inside, each time I get excited by new music, only to learn that listening to it involves dealing with Spotify, or one of the two or three mega behemoths that must consume ALL THE CREATIVES. 😑

@Lystrialle wow you get that much from them? I’ve never gotten a meaningful payout from streaming services at all.

@Lystrialle The streaming royalties are miserable (legalized piracy), but also the Bandcamp community is much more committed to *buy* and support music.
