Being months away from becoming a full time professional artist/entrepreneur, saying I take this subject close to heart is a dire understatement.
Please watch the video, look at the numbers and ask yourself this one simple question : How can YOU support the arts and artists today? And go do that one simple thing. Buy that CD you’ve been freely streaming on bandcamp/spotify/Youtube, buy that concert ticket for next week, go to that summer festival that looks interesting, buy that book on Amazon from that writer you appreciate, give a quarter to the guitarist on the street, simply like a facebook post, blog post from an artist in your group of friends or tell an artist you know that you value their work. You will have made the world a better place.
