I think streaming sites treat the artist/songwriter very poorly. I also don't support them keeping the lion's share of the revenue.
When I first used DK, I didn't realize that I can pick the sites my material would go on: thought it was all or nothing, but if I reload I can choose the sites.
I think most of the so called "benefits' the stream services offer you are not all that actually beneficial.
So, I may reconsider but , my album will be up on the the three sites, if people want digital versions. I will have 100 albums, all I could afford to print, but a small run like that is very expensive to produce so hard to price as well .
I will give to friends and family and I am thinking about sending copies as gifts to certain artists I respect, just to share and to say thank you for their music which they have shared too. Not the most capitalistic of marketing strategies , I know !

Well I definitely came of age in the 60's and our home, between my elder brother and my dad , was filled with all the classic albums and my Mom loved classical. I was in grade one or something like that when the Beatles played sullivan but I was hooked and of course the Stones, Troggs, Kinks, name the band, we probably had the albums. I kind of default to that sixties quality of playing: real songs and I play by ear and intuitively and keep what I genuinely feel.
My family was also big on the Toronto scene as my cousin lived there and again all the great US bands too. With my electric stuff I guess; Beatles,, Stones and Cream ? Acoustic again Beatles , Stones, Traffic, Drake, Traffic, Morrison, Taylor, Mitchel, Cockburn
Glad you are liking and appreciating the tracks: thanks for your comments !
