Is there still room for the dated technology?
Throughout the years we have seen music grow and most importantly, we have seen how music is consumed. From vinyl to 8-Track, tapes to CDs, MP3s to streaming and whatever new technology on the horizon. However for this week’s podcast we focus on the one audio format that took the world by storm during the early 80s and well through the 90s and early 2000s…CDs or compact disc.
We have all had our share of the 4.7 in disc and had plenty of devices to play them on, but now times are different and we ask the simple question, should I abandon selling CDs? As an independent artist, the goal is to get your music in the consumer’s hands while staying well within your limited budget. So should you do away with a technology that’s fading away? Cut your loses and put more money in merch? Well I say no and the reason why is inside.
We breakdown the current forms of audio formats: vinyl, CDs, Digital Albums (MP3s) and streaming, while giving you ways to exist in every market. We are also joined by Toronto emcee Sola as he speaks on adapting to change in the music industry, his Long Overdue 2 project and more.
So you know the drill…sit back…Relax and Listen!
