The Music Industry has been held hostage by numbers: $0.99, $1.29, $9.99. Anyone listening to music in the digital age is all too familiar with these numbers. Digital download and streaming subscription prices have been set with no regard for artists or their fans or free market economics, the very backbone of Capitalism. The scales are weighted in favor of a multitude of suit wearing business-people, most of whom are not involved in the creative process. Musicians and fans must join forces NOW to construct a more egalitarian music industry where more artists and fans win in this music ecosystem.
