Qobuz Supporting Artists With 100% Streaming Revenue
While still not available in Australia, French hi-res audio service, Qobuz which is lauded by many as the highest quality music streaming platform, is helping artists who are not able to tour during lockdown and isolation restrictions by paying rights holders the entire revenue generated by their streams.
For all new subscribers until the 15th May, 100% of Qobuz revenues generated by the first month of subscription will be redistributed to rights holders. Qobuz offers a unique opportunity to get access to a catalogue of more than 50 million tracks in 'CD quality' (FLAC 16-Bit) and in 'Hi Res quality' (FLAC 24-Bit), as well as supporting the musicians that actually make the service possible.
This latest move shows how Qobuz continues the fight it has waged since its inception in 2007, for fair compensation to artists.
Denis Thebaud, President and CEO of Qobuz, told StereoNET:
Loving music is also, and above all, loving those who make it. If we only talk about those who can listen to music, it's a blessed period, we have the rarest thing, time.
We can all help by staying indoors and playing music, and now Qobuz offers another way in which we can help some of our favourite artists who have been grounded and have had to cancel gigs, tours and festivals.
Now, all we need is Qobuz to launch in Australia. We're all ready and willing.
