The features that we have are much more focused on a professional musician who actually makes money for their music, versus somebody who maybe runs a startup or has a business mowing lawns. These are people who identify as musicians first and foremost. They may have a design or freelance gig, but that's just the way that they pay some bills. We are very focused on the fact that musicians all around the world face these same challenges, and we'd love to be able to provide the same services to people in other countries.7 February 2022
