April blog - Purchase vs Streaming
SUPPORT MUSIC MAKERS, NOT MONEY TAKERS
One reason to purchase music is because the music streaming services pay only a pittance to most soundtrack composers. Here are some of the actual royalty amounts paid, as reported on our resident artist's most recent statement:
Spotify, $0.0001 per song | Apple, $0.003 per song | YouTube, $0.002 per song
These are on the low end. It's just not possible for soundtrack composers and musicians to make a living from such pitifully low payments.
FUND THE FLOATERS, NOT THE BLOATERS
Music streaming is kept afloat by the creativity of composers and musicians. Their creativity also lifts society. Soundtrack music lifts our spirits, our moods, our ambitions! Funding soundtrack composers and musicians directly through purchasing music keeps the revenue where it will do the most creative good. Good for artists, good for society.
CLIMB ON BOARD, END THE HOARD
Owning music is a fabulous way to bypass the money hoarding, and directly support composers and musicians. Purchasing music costs very little compared to most forms of entertainment, but does a world of good.
MAKE A HUGE CHANGE
That's why HUGEsound Records was formed. To introduce soundtrack music lovers to curated works they can purchase from gifted composers, giving composers a revenue boost to support them and the musicians they hire in the continual creation of inspiring music. Purchasing music here helps us and our featured composers. But honestly, purchasing soundtrack music from anywhere helps composers.
