“Our artists deserve the rewards they've earned, these sites take them rewards away, it's not fair on the up and comers we support ”
Iain Smith, Label manager
George Hatiras, Artist and record label owner:
"We really make music our whole lives and put our hearts into this. It's nice to feel validated and not cheated. Supporting artists really means a lot. We do appreciate you both connecting with us and protecting us. Much love! "
Will Marshall, Head of Digital:
"In the era of streaming and micro-payments, it's harder and harder for artists to make any kind of meaningful income from their music. It's difficult for casual consumers to know the difference between sites and organisations that support artists and those that act as parasites on this fragile industry. This conversation is important to us at BBE."
Dan Nugent, Producer/DJ:
"Painful to see your music given away free before it even hits the sales platforms."
