I recently read a post on facebook where an independent artist expressed his frustrations about venues or individuals asking him to play for free and sell CD's. What do think about this?
I think if they love music and love their craft they absolutely should. If its there the money will follow, if its not they still got it out there and enjoyed themselves and maybe touched someone... that is what its all about isn't it?
Thank God I love what I do! We are in a poor economy right now. I think we should reduce our rates but play/sing free for great causes, like Fla. Cancer Specialists Foundation which I do. xoxoxo
Yes and no. There is a time and place to give back gratuitously and there is also a time when the starving artist should get recognized in the form of compensation.
