Moving away from Reverbnation

Hi Everyone,

Letting ya'll know that I will be slowing closing down my activities on Reverbnation over the next couple of months. To be clear, Reverbnation hasn't done anything wrong, I just feel that in order for me to move forward in my career I need to communicate wiht my fans and supporters through my official website www.nickikris.com - I'll still be checking in periodically and posting up-dates, but if you want to stay up to date on the latest and greatest from yours truly, please join my mailing list off my home page. You can also follow me on Twitter @nickikris and my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/NickiKrisMusic

Thanks for all of your support!

Paying to be #1

After being contacted yet again to pay for advertising in order to increase my "plays" on Reverbnation, so that the “labels would notice me”, I felt I had to say something. Sure being #1 is great, however I feel very strongly that paying for inflated plays is against who I am, an organic authentic artist. You can say I’m not with the times, but I’d rather be at the bottom of the charts and have real plays, real likes, and real fans that want to play my music because they actually like it not because I paid money to increase my Stats. In My opinion, take it with a grain a salt, this is the problem with the music industry today. It’s all about who has the most YouTube plays, Twitter followers, face book likes, etc. It doesn't even matter if the music is good or if the act can even sing, no worries there is Auto tune and hey you can lip sync during your concerts. I don’t want to be known as that type of artist, I pride myself in the fact that I can actually sing, I don’t use auto tune, I can play an instrument, and I write my songs with thought and feeling. If that’s not what the big labels are looking for, well then I say it’s their loss.

ABSOLUTELY! Thank you Nicki!! I know that everyone has to make their 'dime' and pay their way ... and that it's 'the American way' but, pay-for-play IS wrong. Gee... ya think the LISTENERS should pay? It's ONE of the things wrong with the music business today. Thanks for standing up for principle and speaking out. If only ALL artists would.
