Zepparella has the whole month of November off! 😱
What am I going to do with myself?
Well, as I’m writing this I am making the final touches on the website that I will publish and then you can actually read this post! ✅
I’ve set this website up kind of like Patreon but for people who don’t want to sign up for Patreon. Not that it’s difficult, but the more apps and passwords and usernames that you have to put into your computer, I totally understand why it seems more difficult to add another app to your smartphone.However, it is getting a lot more popular and a lot of people are moving towards it. I see several people lately that have been very successful on it and I feel with the Patrons that I have right now I am definitely getting there. I do post other things on there that you don’t get anywhere else.
The reality, is that, as an artist it’s hard to balance money, time, and creative flow all at once. So, we are in an age today were streaming music means that artist do not get paid by the one big source they always were able to get paid from before-selling their music. Granted it’s not difficult to have enough of a following that an individual artist as myself can live a comfortable lifestyle. But what is the balance between putting out records and touring and putting out a digital footprint and touring? The songs, or digital footprint, are only like advertisements now. A lot of times you have to pay to get people to rotate them. thousands of dollars on Spotify to be on playlists and Spotify doesn’t even pay! I haven’t received a payment from Spotify in months! So as it is today we are forced to get a smaller cult following as independent artists and hope that our cult following stays with us and keeps us on the right path financially to pay for the recordings (they download for free) then set up a tour and buy merch for the tour etc. I guess what I’m getting at is the start of this website is another path to not only share things with everyone but to help bring everyone together to help keep the music going.
Waking up this morning I’m so happy to see many people already joining! It gives me hope and I want to continue making music for y’all! 💗💗💗
Thank you again to everyone that has stopped by so far! XOXO
