Re: I'm Jeff Price. And I'm Ready to Talk About My TuneCore Departure...
Wow, just wow. Jeff seems so confused and out of touch it's no wonder they let him go. This is a guy that doesn't even understand how Soundscan works, so I'm not surprised by this turn of events.
Jeff never understood that TuneCore is a glass ceiling business aimed at hobbiests - and as more and more of them don't recoup the money they pay to TuneCore to keep their bedroom demos active, that reduces the revenue base.
All you can do at that point is try to upsell people into more services that are staying, and/or drop the cost of the service to be more affordable.
For all of Jeff's talk about "Artists Rights" the musicians he most frequently speaks and acts against are the interests of actual Proffessional Musicians.
It's ok to build a business around hobbyists, but just admit it... brings me to my last thought... Jeff was such a cheerleader for a the company he was their greatest asset because he fundementally beleived a lie... how ironic.
