Support your songwriters! Here are some observations from songwriter Amanda Colleen Williams’ blog (https://www.amandacolleenwilliams.com/):
“The best way to support your favorite songwriter is still to purchase an album download or a physical CD, (and not just subscribe to some streaming service.)
”Why? Because the new streaming distribution systems only compensate shareholders, and not songwriters fairly.
”1,000,000 sales equals about $45,500 for the average songwriter (if people are buying their music as album downloads or CD’s), whereas 1,000,000 streams earns only about $430. Can you support a family with $430 per year?
