Musicians Thankful to File-Sharing

It’s becoming quite obvious that most young artists not only do not oppose file-sharing but hold it as a valuable way of exposing their art to the wide public.

Robin Pecknold, frontman of the folk band Fleet Foxes recently expressed his favorable views with regard to the phenomenon of file-sharing. In a interview with Sunday Times the singer said that music “has no inherent value” pointing out that without people illegally downloading their music the band would not have become so successful in such a short time. Fleet Foxes’s 2008 eponymous debut album owes much to file-sharing for the exposure it got, Pecknold believes. In a previous BBC interview he said that thanks to illegal downloading today’s musicians can discover so much more music than the generations before them.

“That will only make music richer as a platform,” he said. “That [downloading] was how I discovered almost everything when I was a teenager – my dad brought home a modem.”

On May 3 the band will release their next album titled ‘Helplessness Blues’ and will continue to have a supportive attitude towards file-sharing.

“How much money does one person need before it’s just a number and I can buy whatever I want – and just be like a big baby?” added Pecknold.

Some of the major artists need to take note of that quote.  :gum:
