Esthero interrupts her own track to protest streaming royalties
Posted on: 10 septembre 2019, by : Stuart Dredge

Canadian artist Esthero has found a novel way to make her views known about streaming royalties: within a track that she’s released on streaming services.
One minute and 37 seconds in to ‘Gimme Some Time’, she interrupts the music. “Hello there, sweet listener. So, I really hope you’re enjoying my song. This is Esthero by the way. But I hope you’re enjoying it enough to go over to www.esthero.net… and purchase the uninterrupted version,” she says.
“It’s really hard as an independent artist to make money, and Spotify and other streaming services only pay about .003 to .008 cents per stream. It’s really not a liveable income. So once again, I really hope you enjoy my music, and I hope you enjoy it enough to actually go and support and buy the song from me…”
