1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Neither option works for me. Not a dance tune, but not WTF. She's playing big rooms. Her EP is gold. She is doing very well for herself at 17. She also suffers from tourette's and has not let it stop her. Not bad.

    Research, its a tool you might want to consider. Takes less than one minute to obtain all the information you could imagine. Aside from a search engine, try Crunchbase.com.

    she's the American Aurora.

    I think she's pretty good, myself.

    Ok wiki says this:

    "Ocean Eyes", went viral and has accumulated over 194 million streams on Spotify as of January 2019

    So how much money did she make from that?

    Sounds fine to me. Run of the mill pop song. I can understand the popularity. I would bet it's not the last we hear from her. And she's making way more money than I am playing music. Awesome for her!

    She? No idea since I don’t know how much of the publishing, etc. she’s entitled to. But that collective responsible for the song would’ve received somewhere in the neighborhood of $1.5M.

    There are entirely too many "experts" around here who think that their opinion of music should be the holy grail.
