eMusic Wire/10254004

Band is determined to not get trampled by the industry machine

MANHATTAN, N.Y. - eMusicWire -- Rather than simply releasing their album on streaming sites, veteran rock band Lonnieclaire is taking a more independent approach. They're exclusively selling their new LP only on compact disk directly to their fans thru their website. By taking this route, Lonnieclaire is showing that they're unsatisfied with the status quo of the music industry, and striving to create a more personal connection with their fans, rather than relying on the algorithms of streaming services to push their music to new audiences.

The band is taking a gamble, but it hopes this unconventional approach will allow it to more deeply engage with their fans. The band says it's decision to avoid streaming sites isn't a protest on the legitimacy of the streaming industry, but rather a statement on how they want to reach their audience. They're not giving up on the idea of streaming, but rather finding an alternate way to make it work for them.
