"Is Spotify a good deal for musicians? Is it better to sell records/CDs or Spotify listens?"

This was a question on another thread.

I thought it would be worth its own thread.

there are older threads for techy stuff and grumbles

My son's, band, curiously named !!! (Chk Chk Chk), has a lot of YouTube videos and gets a lot of hits on Spotify. They get a little bit of money, but not much. I think they're at the point where they figure that Spotify and YouTube give them publicity and enough money for coffee, but not much more. They make their money in live performances.

Here's a sample of what my kid does: I hadn't seen the "Every Little Bit Counts" video before. It gave me a good laugh. Now that he's 40, though, I wish he'd stop wearing those short shorts.
