What singles have not appeared on albums?
most stuff makes it on an album
expensive to record in a studio
raising the money ahead of time works!
Producer in Portland
most of the time, songs are timely
What app? Use the camera app and put it on YouTube
soundcloud started ad-supported free accounts (you get part of the revenue)
bandcamp api doesn’t pay for streaming
Rovics is in 1% of album sales!
