Thread Name: Spotify doubles U.S. price
Subject: RE: Spotify
schlimmerkerl, where are you? Spotify isn't available everywhere, and it may be that you have been able to download the software but it won't let you register because of your location.
Having said that, I also had problems running it at first, and gave up. Some months later, having heard more good reports, I tried again and succeeded. There is a lot of trad music on there.
From an artist's point of view, I've tried to have 2 CD's put on there and in both cases it took several months and I had to chase CD Baby (who handle the digital distribution) to get them to chase Spotify. We've had some payments but they're for streaming so they're tiny - we won't be giving up the day jobs.
In fact this has prompted me to check and both albums are now on there. Search for:
