As streaming grows more popular and the pool of musicians grows larger and larger, Dream Theater and Liquid Tension Experiment's Jordan Rudess advises aspiring musicians not to rely solely on their music to make money.
Speaking with Kaaos TV, the Dream Theater keyboardist admitted that he believes Patreon and other similar tools will become a primary source of income for new musicians as they start their careers.
"I really think it's moving in that direction more and more," he said. "I think it makes so much sense. I like it. In general, I feel great about it."
