About David Turner

Penny Fractions is a newsletter that contextualizes the ever-changing digital music industry, written by David Turner. The first newsletter arrived in November 2017 and I've maintained delivering it at Wednesday morning at around 9:15am (EST) ever since. I've covered everything from the Hipgnosis Song Fund, the rise of Tencent, and imagining a post-capitalist music streaming world.

My background is in music journalism where I've written for Bandcamp Daily, Music Business Worldwide, Pitchfork, the New Yorker, Real Life Mag, Rolling Stone, Slate, and Spin. Currently I work as a Program Manager at SoundCloud, so these thoughts represent me, not my employer and this is why I don’t cover the company here.

Also, I previously wrote previews and other content on this Patreon but ceased doing that at the end of the 2020. So, supporting will give access to this older content but I am currently no longer updating the Patreon page.
