Pennies or Pirates?
It’s a fact for artists these days that music is freely available for download on the web — even ours! Yes, that’s right, Rosie and The Thorns have been pirated! And not just once, there’s a whole raft of sites where you can download hiqh-quality mp3s of ‘Crazy Talk’.
I know there is not much I can do about it and a part of me is kind of pleased to know that people have actually gone to the effort of uploading the album… occasionally even with their opinions of it! But trying to make a living from creative pursuits gets harder, even though the demand for new music is certainly not slowing down.
So, if you have downloaded one of these free copies of the album, perhaps you might consider sending us a small donation, I’ll leave the amount up to you…
