EL SEGUNDO, CA (PRWEB) February 10, 2013
Tonight’s 2013 Grammy Awards is the music industry’s biggest event of the year, and many viewers will be tuning in to see what music they should pick up next. Go Banking Rates has investigated good ways to save money on music and has compiled a guide of music downloading and streaming platforms listeners can use to find the music they love for cheap.
The Grammy Awards often provide the music industry with a nice boost in sales the week following the show, especially for artists who are winners or performers. In the week following Adele’s sweep at last year’s Grammy Awards, for example, sales of her album “21” rose by 207%, with 730,000 copies sold, according to a Feb 22, 2012 MTV News article, “Adele Breaks Record By Selling 730,000 After Grammys.” The article lists other Grammy winners and performers who also saw a boost in sales following the 2012 Grammy Awards, including the Civil Wars, whose sales rose 178%, and the Foo Fighters, whose sales rose 134%.
Music shoppers typically turn to popular music downloading services like the iTunes Store or Amazon Instant to purchase new music, but consumers who are willing to look outside these popular services can find better deals on the same songs and artists they love, including Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Fun. and The Black Keys.
To help 2013 Grammy Awards music lovers find cheaper (and even free) ways to download and stream music, Go Banking Rates releases a new guide revealing the top six music download and streaming services.
“If you're the kind of person who believes music should be cheap and accessible to the masses, while also paying back the artists, then these music service websites are for you,” says Go Banking Rates expert contributor, Paul Sisolak.
