[Other] Recording Grants for Independent Musicians

Spotify should offer recording grants for Independent Musicians. Why?
  • The median wage for a musician in Australia is $7000 p/a
  • Average cost of recording an album is $20,000
  • Streaming services have impacted the income of musicians (we make less)
  • Trying to get the funds to make an album is hard. Most musicians have to find the money elsewhere (annoying)
  • Recorded music is the core foundation of the Spotify business which is currently making a large profit
  • It would be an excellent way to support and give back to musicians
  • It's excellent PR for Spotify

Hey @MusicHannah, thanks for coming to the Spotify Community!

 

Spotify already does something similar: they've built a few studios in major cities around the world where artists can apply for free studio time. For more information, check out Spotify's Secret Genius here: https://secretgenius.com

 

If there's anything else I can do to help, let me know!
