A few facts about the music industry: For starters, it was never established nor designed with the artist in mind. Music was originally only used to sell products to listeners via commercials, never intending to become one of the biggest industries in the world. In fact, when the first recording devices were made, the inventors didnt believe that anyone would ever buy music. Prior to becoming recordable you had to enjoy it in a live setting or not at all. More surprisingly is that the industry wasnt started by musicians, but by actual bankers.
Unwrapping the history of the music industry makes it easy to see how artists have continued to be the last on the totem pole when it comes to earnings despite the fact that they are the ones doing the majority of the work. SmartPhoneRecords was created by artists, for artists and by providing a more convenient and faster way to distribute music, SPR is transforming the way artists control their craft and connect with their fans.
