VÉRITÉ on NFTs and 350 Million Streams Without a Label | The New Music Business with Ari Herstand

VÉRITÉ is an incredible artist who has had over 350 million streams all independently. She has never signed to a label. She discusses why she stayed independent her entire career.

We also dig into NFTs. She’s, to date, dropped 3 NFTs and made 10s of thousands of dollars on them. She explained what they are, how she got started, what the future of them is, why they’re important, and their challenges. If this is your first introduction into NFTs, get ready. We go deep. But she also breaks it down really well.

She’s also the host of the podcast, Anatomy of an Artist, which I was a guest on: https://spoti.fi/3npAAMH
