With the advent of recorded music, fans could connect with their favorite artists outside of the concert hall. An industry was born and the machine pushed out as much content as the public demanded. But it was a relationship with little-to-no feedback from fans to artists about what they wanted. In the Direct-to-Fan model, the paradigm has shifted and artists can not only crowdsource funding for projects, but they can crowdsource fans’ ideas and desires to create an experience and connection to artists like never before.
