4. Fans & Artists build and promote together to grow and succeed.
It is traditionally accepted that signing with a label is a big break for an artist. However, with social media and streaming platforms, labels are no longer gatekeepers to success. In fact, the vast majority of artists independently create, distribute, and market their own music, sometimes without ever leaving their bedrooms.
As a byproduct of this paradigm shift, indie artists’ fanbases have grown exponentially BUT their financial condition has remained unchanged. This dichotomy is entirely illogical and a remnant of antiquated economics.
Currently, the relationship between artists and their fans is very deep but difficult to directly monetize. Above all else, Decent promises to bridge this divide, allowing artists who SHOULD have a market, to actually have a market and capture more of the full value they create.
