Azealia Banks and Bitshares Music / PeerTracks
« on: December 28, 2014, 06:29:21 PM »

Hello all!

I grew up during the 1980s which I considered to be the last golden era of music, until recent experiences changed my mind.  Azealia Banks is an AMAZING artist that gives me the same goosebumps that I felt when I first heard Michael Jackson and Prince back in 1982/1983. 

Here is one of her most popular songs:

She is captivating.  Whether you love or hate her music, she knows how to grab people's attention.  I just sent her a message on Youtube to let her know about Peertracks.com and BitShares Music (if she has not already heard of them).  I told her that I believe that she would absolutely blow up on PeerTracks.  She has made some statements recently that guarantee her a loyal following.  She said things that were extremely courageous that you NEVER hear from a big artist that has a lot to lose. 

Let's show her some love, and let her know that some of the injustices that she references would be solved by a decentralized music platform where artists CANNOT be exploited.

If you want to hear some of her thoughts on societal issues, this interview is a very good starting point:

Sincerely,
Philogus

By the way, Ms. Banks recently gained her freedom from her exploitative record label (http://www.theguardian.com/music/2014/jul/11/azealia-banks-leaves-record-deal-universal), so hopefully, she might see PeerTracks are a good fit for her and her fans.

Did you get a chance to write her?

Hi Delulo!
Yes  I did.  I sent her a message via Youtube.   I haven't received a reply yet, but she seems like the perfect artist for PeerTracks: extremely talented, but with a fearlessness that I think would attract a really huge following.  Hopefully, she'll hear about PeerTracks and check us out.

Sounds good, thanks for taking the time!

What did you say in your youtube message if you don't mind me asking?

I don't remember the exact wording, but I basically said that I admire her work, and I understand her frustration with the way that the traditional music industry works.  I told her that I think that her talents and following seem to me to be a perfect fit for the PeerTracks concept.  I included a link to the Bitcoins and Gravy interview.
