In a lengthy Facebook post early this morning, rapper Heath McNease talked vulnerably about the struggles of being an indie artist. Giving exact stats and numbers on his album streams vs. downloads, he talked about the frustrations that come to artists because fans are quick to stream music for free instead of actually buying it. 

After comparing the numbers of iTunes sales against the money made from streaming sites like Bandcamp and Noisetrade, Heath announced, "I'll be releasing this new project on Noisetrade first. It'll cycle out to all the other outlets shortly after. But this is me telling you that the life of an indie artist is so deeply complicated. So hard. So uplifting and encouraging at times...but so ultimately humbling and humiliating at others." 
 


"Share, guys. If you like what I do and you consider yourself a fan...please for the love of God...share. It is NOBODY'S job to help make me successful or happy. It's my job to provide for myself. But if you do care...sharing is the ONLY way I'll ever move beyond this point," Heath encouraged fans. "Or I will seriously be closing up shop sooner than later and just making music a hobby. Things can't stay the same anymore. I'd be foolish to keep doing this if they did. Love you all."
