Indie Folksters Fleet Foxes Thank Filesharing for Success
Pecknold, aged 23, found his tastes and sound changing when he was exposed to filesharing, which allowed him to 'steal' most of the music that influences him. "I've discovered so much through that medium," he told the BBC. The singer added. "That will be true of any artist my age."
Of course, recording labels may disagree, but the fact is that more and more artists are realizing that torrents and filesharing (get with it, Metallica) mean more fans, more exposure, and possibly more success -- and that the music industry has changed for good. [From: BBC News and TorrentFreak]
