It is a risky and expensive time to be a new artist; we went into debt to record our new album. But, music is our passion, and we are following our dreams.
Yesterday, Taylor Swift stuck up for new artists who are working hard and many times do not get paid for their efforts. Taylor stood up for what she believed was right and changed Apple Music's mind. Now artists will be paid during the listener's free 3-month trial with Apple Music. This affects us personally, as we are set to release our new EP Imagination on August 10th.
Taylor proved that one voice really can make a difference. People can achieve their dreams AND give a voice to those who feel like they do not have one. Ordinary people can do extraordinary things.
Thank you Taylor Swift.
