This were the questions I came up with for the Niki page during the last workshop of the semester;
Interview with fan
Host: Thanks Josh for your thoughts, it’s so good to hear straight from an artist who’s in the game and right there in the midst of all this rapid change. Now, we are going to talk with one of the millions of Spotify fans. Thanks for joining us on the show Daniel. What makes you so interested in spotify?
Daniel: Well, Spotify makes it so easy to find the right music for every moment – on your phone, your computer, your tablet and more.
Host: What would you say is the biggest strength of spotify?
Daniel: There are millions of tracks on Spotify. So whether you’re working out, partying or relaxing, the right music is always at your fingertips, and we can also choose what you want to listen to.
Host: What makes Spotify differ from other online music streaming services?
Daniel: Spotify is generally free and legal to use, and it’s convenient and easy to download.
Host: How many users are there online?
Daniel: Spotify has more than 24 million users, and it has converted more than six million of them into paying subscribers. If you pay a small fee each month, you can listen to it on the go without the need for an internet connection or ads to interrupt your listening session.
Host: Would you recommend others to use Spotify?
Host: Great, thanks for sharing your thoughts with us! That’s about all we have time for today. As you can see, there are a huge number of people in favour of Spotify, but also a smaller but important crowd who are not yet convinced of its viability and helpfulness to the music industry.
But, whether we have a problem with it or not, the reality is that it is here, and online streaming is probably only going to grow and get bigger. All we can hope for is that as more and more people flock to programs such as Spotify, that royalties for artists both small and great would increase. Because, at the end of the day, musicians are the ones making this all possible.
Thanks for listening.
