@jk if _not_ being on Spotify works better for you than being on it, you should not feel pressured to be on Spotify. You’re not on a label (as far as I can tell), you don’t have to work to recoup an advance, you don’t owe anyone anything. You probably are not making a living from your art, but you are completely totally free to choose how you want people to receive your art.
Sometimes I wonder how I would handle this, if I had, like, talent. I think I’d do Bandcamp or gtfo.
