Oh.

Wicklow-born country singer Luan Parle leaves Spotify with a choice message for the streaming service’s controversial (see below) CEO, Daniel Ek.

Musicians criticise Spotify CEO for saying it’s “not enough” to release albums “every 3-4 years” (NME)

    The problem is people who like to make music thinking that they can just go and make music and then make money from it. Being a musician means learning how to do effective radio interviews, learning how to expand their network, gigging 6 nights a week, organising tours and managers and t-shirts and viral social media posts, and that’s before all the superficial needs of the public are satisfied. If you can’t accept that those elements are part of the occupation, then you’re just a gambler taking on Paddy Power. I’m not saying I’m happy it’s that way, but the horse bolted in circa 1996 and there’s no way of changing that now.

      I think what has happened since then is that one sort of blood sucking leech has been replaced by another. Back then record companies creamed the profits off artists until probably around the early eighties when they started to get themselves good legal advice and/or management.

      That has been replaced by Spotify except even the single figure artist percentage profit has been reduced to buttons. So yes I think it is harder for artists now because on paper they may appear successful but still looking at their bank balances and wondering what is the point of it all.

      File sharing is also an issue of course.

    So, an ad appeared on BS entitled ‘Pat Kenny Confirmed on News’ and here is where it led:

    Reminds me of the South Park episode, where Lars Ulrick couldn’t afford another swimming pool because of piracy.

    She’s right, Spotify sucks balls.
