I play music for a living. It's a crazy thing- how many kids daydream about being a singer when they grow up? How many of those kids dreamed of being an independent artist?
What's the difference?
mainstream artists are backed by large companies which spend lots of
money on their artists' careers to keep releasing more new music,
more live performances, new clothing-line editions, new tour buses,
new reality TV shows, more stuff for millions of people to buy to
keep the cycle going and going... Indies? Well, Independent artists
typically don't have the resources to reach all those millions of
people. Expenses for recording, promotion, equipment and travel are
all typically covered by the artist, so independent artists often put
everything they've got into their product and hope to break even at
the very least. While the financial side tends to be a drawback, the
art is uninfluenced by marketing strategies, target audiences,
mainstream trends, what's selling, what isn't... It's pure music,
pure art- direct from its source. It's what becomes imitated and
creates mainstream trends.

handheld electronic devices that connect to another universe to
download combinations of ones and zeros to virtually produce a
musical recording out of thin air! New technological advances are
making possible completely new ways for artists to reach their fans
en-masse. Patreon is one of those advances.
