New Music Streaming App Rethinks How Artists Are Paid
Just keep streaming. While services like Spotify and Apple Music dominate the market with millions of subscribers, they’re not the only game in town: Voltra is a new digital music store with an “ethical mission” to give 100 percent of revenue from sales and streams to artists. The app, which offers a pay-to-play streaming service but focuses on ownership, is a reaction against big companies notoriously paying artists very little. The next step: Increasing its 3 million song library to 10 million before a planned May launch.
