  1. God, let’s hope it doesn’t get any worse than "pay $10 a month to access to millions of songs" as the value of music. The math: $10/50 songs = $0.20 per month for the artist? But $10/month times millions of people sure add up for the "provider", enough to pay tens of millions of fines and then some, apparently. Same story over and over again- how do we use artists to make billions for ourselves? And what does the artist do when nobody supports them at all anymore, when they have practically nothing from the supposed "good deeds" that streaming and the other businesses are doing? Oh, I am sure they will help them out from their billions- I heard they are very generous and ethical, it is obvious from the business model (LOL)



Howdy. I'm Michael Donaldson.

I'm a consultant for the music industry, working with emerging artists and labels. I also manage a label of my own, named 8D Industries, and publish + license music under 8DSync. Sometimes I'm a Q-Burns Abstract Message. But mostly I'm just trying to keep these damn cats out of my office.

I like to send postcards to my friends, and if you'd like I'll send one to you.

Oh, and here's what I'm working on now.
