hi Reid... huge fan... 2 queries that kind of lead into each other...1. how much $$ do you get from iTunes and MapleMusic sales ?? 2. buying direct at a show is better or does the house take a % ??
It really boils down to what works best for the fan, whatever is most convenient for you. It's a funny thing these cd sales. On the one hand the artist makes more money selling cds directly (some venues and definitely festivals take a cut), but on the other hand when fans buy cds from the distributors and stores, it looks good on the artist, and so they keep them on their roster. Either way it's a good thing and we are all just tickled pink that anyone still buys records.
