His name is Luka.
Guess you’ve never streamed him before?
Via Hot Press:
‘The presentation of my appeal as some sort of political statement against streaming is nonsense.
I had no desire to make a stand against anyone.
My appeal was clear. If people wish to experience my record, all I ask is that they actually buy it from actually me; because I actually generated the songs and the momentum, and paid all the people who helped get the record done, over a period of 2 years.
My only motivation in this appeal was clear and simple. I need the money.
And my experience of streaming of music through my working life is that it contributes literally nothing to my work. And then takes the streamed income and pockets it. I have no problem with that at all. it’s just that I have no desire to avail of this ‘service’.
But respect those who do.’
