If you're buying recorded music often, then as far as I'm concerned you're doing your part to support music creation - and it doesn't hurt anyone for you to have more of it for free. Music shouldn't be a commodity, and I think it's silly to claim that we should hold on to an old model where people must pay a precise amount corresponding exactly to each song they listen to or download. Of course artists still deserve to be able to make a living, and an "all music should be free" model doesn't work either. There's got to be a better way to organize all this, and I believe that eventually we'll figure something out that works far better than the old system. But I think the key thing for us to realize is that we're we're all in this together, musicians and fans, and we don't necessarily need middlemen coming between us.
So please, if you've bought someone else's album in the last two months, don't feel obliged to pay for mine. Just e-mail me a photo or screenshot of what you bought, and then I'll e-mail you a download link. You don't need to have any proof that the picture you're sending me is from the last two months. Just please don't lie? My e-mail address is digits(at)digitsmusic(dot)com
We are all the media now, so if you like my idea, spread the word and maybe others will try it too.
Where Do You Belong? was recorded and mixed in various bedrooms in London, Oxford, Berlin, and Istanbul, and is about travelling as a solo musician and not having a permanent home. This record would not have been possible without the help of some incredible people.
