Why artist or musician should sign up with Kerchoonz?
Artists can track downloads and streams of their music so they will know what region or even city their fans are coming from. If an artist doesn't want to give the music away as a free download, they can simply turn that function off. They can direct their fans to any online store they choose. However, they will still get paid if someone listens to their music through Kerchoonz. The streams are encrypted thus they can upload their full song without worrying about someone simply "stealing" it.
