With streaming music being the popular method to get your music nowadays, it’s still important to buy music that you really love to support the artist. Every time one of my song is streamed on Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play, etc, I earn a measly $.0004. I’m glad my music is being heard, but it makes it hard to continue to record music, with each song costing 1000’s of dollars. With each purchase of a $.99 song, I earn close to $.60 each. You then own it and can listen as much as you’d like while knowing you truly support the artist and the art. While being an Apple Music subscriber, I choose to buy music whenever I truly love an artist. This is my favorite album of 2018. Thank you Jordan Davis for providing me with my soundtrack for the last year. I pretty much always choose vinyl anymore, because they usually come with a download and I don’t have a CD player in any of my vehicles anymore. Please, support the arts, and support live music. #vinyl Edit: the best way to support an artist is by going to a live show, and buying merch directly from the artist. Merch bought directly from the artist benefits them 100%. My friends know I love merch at live shows, but it’s my way of supporting the artist. #gotoconcerts #buytshirt #buyhats #buykoozies #buyalbums
Unfortunately, I will not be playing today at Okoboji Grill. I’m a little under the weather as they say and it’s left me with very little voice. I hate having to do it but I’m afraid I wouldn’t be much of an entertainer today. I have faith though that y’all will find a way to enjoy this beautiful Sunday.
It’s been a great year so far and I’d love to close out September with some great shows. Then I’m taking a few months to focus on Ashley and my wedding in December and then hopefully party with everyone on NYE. Thanks always for the support and I’ll see ya out!
