I think it's something that anyone who purchases music should read. Independent artists are just as good if not better than alot of what you hear on the radio, they just haven't been signed by a major label or choose to remain independent. The music you buy isn't a hobby to them, it's how they live from day to day, royalty to royalty, rent check to rent check. It's their heart, their soul, their sweat, their tears, their anger, their pain, their fear of failure, their joy of success. The next time you purchase music, please consider purchasing from a new artist or an independent artist. They keep the world singing with their craft. Thank you.
