Re: I'm Jeff Price. And I'm Ready to Talk About My TuneCore Departure...
Jeff, $1,000 a month for a band IS peanuts. Especially when that sort of figure represents the top echelon of earners.
While it's true the vast majority of TuneCore's dilettante clientele would have made nothing under the old system, the ~$200 the average TC user makes now (per annum!) is still in "rounding error" territory.
The old, pre-Napster model earned more musicians a liveable wage than an army of TuneCores ever could (which is to say nothing of all the millionaire musicians it minted)
If you want to lower the bar until it clanks against the floor, fine, but don't you dare call it "progress".
