Attention, artists: Streaming music is the inescapable future. Embrace it

Attention, artists: Streaming music is the inescapable future. Embrace it

Eric Hutchinson long cherished his alphabetized treasury of CDs, but when he began gravitating to streaming-music sites like Pandora, he packed his music collection into four suitcases. That all fits in my pocket now, he remembers thinking, as he shoved them in a taxi to take to a second-hand CD store.

If you subscribe to the anti-Spotify gospel of Taylor Swift, Hutchinson’s actions should strike fear in the hearts of artists: a music lover moving from money-making purchases to the feels-like-free universe of streaming tunes. The only wrinkle: Hutchinson is a musician himself.

A recording artist for more than a decade, Hutchinson is headlining a 30-date cross-country tour, playing theaters that can accommodate 1,000 or more people. The singer-songwriter also listens to seven to 10 hours of streaming music a week. “The model is not perfect yet for sure, but the more people stream, it’s an exciting time to be making music as a result,” he said.

The rise of streaming services like Spotify and Pandora is spurring a fundamental change in how the industry makes money, from selling ownership of music to selling access to it. This shift fogs the career path for artists: Beside complicating royalties, it hasn’t been around long enough to prove it can sustain careers. Plus, stars looking down from on high — like Swift, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and The Talking Heads’ David Byrne — proclaim the model cheapens music and rips musicians off. But artists who ignore the high-profile preaching will find streaming actually levels the playing field, giving more musicians than ever a fighting chance.

#Comics Which #Superhero Earns $1.3 Billion a Year?

spider-man-450

Much has been made of the arms race between Disney’s Marvel Studios and Warner Bros.’ DC Comics to create superhero movies through 2020. Less debated is a key financial underpinning of the war: Licensing revenue generates tens of billions of dollars for Hollywood companies, and DC needs a heroic effort to catch Marvel in licensing profits.

On Oct. 15, Warners CEO Kevin Tsujihara said that if he can close the current gap by half, the studio could earn an additional $150 million a year in profits. How big is the gap? In May, License Global placed Disney first among licensors with sales of about $41 billion in 2013; Warners was seventh with $6 billion. Both have strong properties: The Licensing Letter listed Marvel’s Spider-Man global retail sales at $1.3 billion and Avengers at $325 million in 2013, compared with DC’s Batman at $494 million and Superman at $277 million.

(New EP) – @ChiefSTRAY “The Camp Out”

(New EP) - @ChiefSTRAY “The Camp Out”

Now when you think of camp outs, you think of the typical things like nature, birds, bees, trees, etc.. But for the young Portland artist ¢hief, this name holds a lot more significance. “The Camp Out” EP is a seven track project with a vibe that, in a way, makes you want to actually go camping. ¢hief takes you through the highs and lows through his life while also providing you with a very diverse selection of music lyrically and production wise. You are sure to enjoy “The Camp Out” EP.

“The Camp Out” tells a story of how I was betrayed by a woman I thought was my lover and best friend. I went on a camping trip with this woman and her family this past summer. During the trip, she showed prime examples of why I couldn’t continue to trust her. If you listen closely to “Lost it” & “The Ride Home”, they tell you a little more about my actual feelings behind the situation. My overall thoughts on “The Camp Out” are positive however because I know I put together a great project with substance.

[Video] @TrubzKY x Gypsy Drifter – ‘Tears’

[Video] @TrubzKY x Gypsy Drifter - 'Tears'

The legend of Trubz dates back to his days growing up as one of Louisville’s most versatile athletes. As a highly recognized high school senior, Trubz (born Zach Noonan) received All-State awards for soccer, and received a full collegiate scholarship to play baseball at the Murray State University. After undergoing shoulder surgery in his junior year of high school, Trubz was unsure of his ability to play the game of baseball again. Overcoming this setback, Trubz set many records in college, but never completed an entire season healthy. At the first game in his senior year, he blew out his elbow. Suddenly, Trubz realized that baseball would soon be a memory of the past, and music would become the forefront of a new beginning.

In the new visual by Trubz, him and the featured performer Gypsy Drifter dive into a world that most would never see. A world of drug addiction, loan sharks, and losing those closest to us. This video touches the soul and instills sympathy into the listener. The last few minutes of the video is used to tell the listener about the background story behind this video and how they lost a close friend, Ricky Evans. Hopefully this video changes the minds of anyone who may be feeling alone, or that drugs are the only way. There is help and Trubz reaches out a helping hand.
