As a fan, and not an artist, I haven't found the subscriptions to be enticing.

There is so much good music out there. I'd rather spend my money on buying what exists and what I know I'll like. That way I can support the artists who are producing work that I enjoy.

Subscriptions are a gamble.

Cheers for that,

Good points - which I hadn't thought of.

Im on the fence with this......as a musician knowing the way I work it can take a while for a production to come to its fruition and to ask people to pay and wait doesn't sit right for me in my particular situation.  More suited to prolific musicians.  Also I would feel obliged to produce and push music out that perhaps is not ready.

Michelangelo's art very well may not of existed without the patronage of the Medici's....so.

Recently I like the way Sam Rosenthals  "As Lonely as Dave Bowman, Monolith" kickstarter program went.
