David Byrne Takes a Stand For Artists
David Byrne has writen an op-ed piece in The New York Times calling for more transparency from Streaming services.
"It’s easy to blame new technologies like streaming services for the drastic reduction in musicians’ income. But on closer inspection we see that it is a bit more complicated. Even as the musical audience has grown, ways have been found to siphon off a greater percentage than ever of the money that customers and music fans pay for recorded music."
He says non-disclosure agreements between the record companies and the streaming services cloud what the artist sees monetarily.
