I hear a lot of good music from folks here, and usually the first thing someone asks is if it's on Spotify and / or other streaming services. I know most of them don't pay much, so I was wondering what you get from putting your music on them. I get the sense that Sound Cloud is handy for just having a place to share your songs if you don't have your own website. However, it seems like "being on Spotify" is a thing in and of itself.
Was hoping some of you could share what you get by having a presence on the various streaming services. I don't play bars anymore, so I' m wondering if there's any benefit to my songs being on streaming services rather than just having them on my own website.
