As a recording artist, I felt compelled to have a music app of my own. By the grace of God, I was able to do so. I got so tired of always having to go through the gatekeepers that we call streaming services just to get my music heard, playing by their rules like every other artist is expected to do. We are not a monolith. Some of us aren't just artists. I believe a number of us are innovators and entrepreneurs as well, if not the vast majority. It's time to put the power back into the hands of the artist. Especially now more than ever in these perilous times for us all.
