Slaid: I saw your breakdown on how you make money from your music: CD sales from your site, Amazon/Apple, Spotify, etc. As an American living in Norway, ordering CDs is prohibitively expensive (and I may never get to see you live), so I'm one of those fans you get 7 cents from via Spotify. Do you do Kickstarter for your records or only self-fund? Maybe you need a "send me money" PayPal account or something for people who want to flat-out donate. ;-) Regards, Craig
I appreciate your concern. It's a tricky situation. I'm starting to think on the lines of: "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em." So I guess begging people to "follow" and "like" and "share" is what I should do more of.
That said, I like the BandCamp model, which allows fans to pay more than list price if they choose. My latest release is available there, and I will be uploading more material this year.
I am Bram Vandenberg from the Netherlands. Every tuesday evening from 20.00 - 22.00 (CET)I have my own program on Roundandsound Radio

Would you like to make an announcement for one of your songs for me
(Maybe on your phone or so). My email address is : email@example.com
Would love to see you tour the Midwest. Specifically Columbus Ohio.Slaid Cleaves responded on 03/10/2019
