at each of our fingertips lies an incredible arsenal of technology that we all take for granted. our phones and laptops provide us with an uncanny ability to creatively express ourselves however we like, wherever and with whomever we like, by just tapping on a screen, with no engineers or tech wizards required.

you use these tools to connect with your friends and family all over the world, and you us them to consume entertainment, and to read, listen and learn, but are you using these tools as best as you can to build a bridge between yourself, your music, and your fans?

in today's show we talk about how musicians can use digital video and audio in new ways that shifts the focus onto you and your thoughts, ideas, feelings and opinions, rather than just your music alone.

use the tools you already own to build a deeper connection with your audience and supporters, by going beyond the music.

the ongoing debate over whether or Spotify is good for artists is in the music news once again, thanks to Taylor Swift and her label removing her entire catalogue from the popular streaming service.

what's the problem?

why does Spotify continue to be such a polarizing topic for musicians?

is it really a problem at all? or rather a lack of people being properly informed on how royalties are paid, and to whom?

what are the alternatives and implications to not not having your music on the streaming services?

we get into all of it.
