The state of the Jewish Music industry is crumbling. We are now at a point that Mostly Music has a "Post Single" button on their homepage.

Jewish music is so bad that instead of people paying for it people pay to have their kvetching passed off as music...

Is it though? It could just be a more targeted way of soliciting advertisers for the site. If they have takers, I'm curious if it will have a "sponsored" tag.

Also, if there isn't as much a market as there used to be for selling albums, that doesn't mean it's crumbling, it is changing. Avraham Fried, for instance, seems to be more interested in releasing singles s they are ready rather than accumulating an album's worth of material.

Is venture a guess that far more people are listening to more Jewish music now than a decade or two ago, only that now it's streaming vs albums. But that's just a bunch.

Good point. I didn't see it from that perspective.

I think they do, but the amount of revenue that comes in from every mediocre song, with it being streamed 10 or 100 times, is miniscule.

No hard data on this, just my assumption.

They do, but it is in fractions of pennies. I think upthread there is a breakdown of how much Spotify and others pay, and it really is not a lot. The money is in live performances. But that has not changed, albums were always called business cards

Unless your name is Shwekey, Fried, MBD, or Isaac Honig. Then you can make money on albums also.

I love Isaac Honig, but I'm curious why he's on this list.

I've been told by an insider in the JM industry that Isaac Honig sells a vast amount of albums, far more than any other singer in his caliber.

Although he didn't specify a reason, I think it's obvious. The demographic he caters to often does not own computers or smartphones, so copying it is not prevalent there. He puts out an album once every 10 years (generally), and it's top quality, classic songs. Everyone in his demographic buys it, as well as many in the litvish world.

Why is Shir3 only available on Apple music and not available for purchase on Amazon music?
 Wouldn't mind using my No rush credits to buy the CD.

Or would even use my Amazon app to listen.

https://music.apple.com/us/album/shir-3/1549579470

 Interesting that he would release it to apple and not Amazon.

Shir3 is now available on Amazon music. Although, I think it's only for Amazon music unlimited.
