Thank you for answering my question the other week. I would like to ask: how can we fans best support you? From which source (e.g. BurningShed, shops, elsewhere) should we buy your albums so that you receive the maximum return? Also, do you receive much from Spotify? I buy albums, but then use Spotify at work. Thinking that you (and other artists) will receive a little bit more from the Spotify listening. Is this so?

A considerate question indeed, thank you. Bandcamp is the most direct source of revenue and yields the greatest share per unit sold. After that would come Burning Shed but there is a sizeable disparity between the two.

Spotify is a bit of a joke really, looking at a recent statement every $100 amounts to approximately 23,000 tracks streams. It doesn’t compare very favourably with Apple Music which is approximately double that. Still, if you’ve already purchased the music and are kind enough to use streaming sources it will count as additional revenue therefore you are entirely correct and us artists are very grateful for this type of thoughtfulness. Thank you.

  1. Steve is not only a musician… He is also a photographer… He is selling some of his photographs via his offical web page. So, besides his music, there is another way, support his work… FYI… 🙂 All the best.

  2. I’d like to add, whoever comes here to read and hasn’t given Bandcamp a shot yet, please do so. If you love music and have genuine respect for its creators , then Bandcamp is the way to go. Plus it’s also a great source of new music to discover.
