Making Music in the Age of Free
Music is now free. You can listen to anything you want, anytime, and you usually don’t have to pay for it. Sometimes it’s piracy, sometimes it’s legal, sometimes the artists themselves give it away. But free music is not free to produce. Will music undergo the same sort of revival that food has – farm-to-table, hand-crafted – or will we, as listeners, accept music turning into a fast-food consumable?
Vanessa Peters has played over 1000 shows in 11 countries, receiving accolades from abroad and in her hometown of Dallas, where she was recently nominated as “Best Folk Artist” by The Dallas Observer. She tours the US and Europe and expects to release two new albums in 2015 – an Americana album recorded with The Sentimentals and an album of her own material co-produced with her husband and bandmate Rip Rowan. Her last album, “The Burn The Truth The Lies,” was on a number of top 10 lists in 2012 and was her most successful album (both critically and commercially) to date.
