Okay, don’t take the title too literally. I’m not actually demanding that you pay for my music; I understand that it’s already available for free via SoundCloud.
However, if you’re really interested in the music I produce and want to be a part of making my music better, you can support me financially by buying my music from Bandcamp or Gumroad. Supporting me by spending a dollar on Gumroad or just 50 cents on Bandcamp for the high-quality file will have a hugely positive effect on my creation process, plus you get high-quality, lossless audio!
By supporting me, you’ll prove that what I’m creating is actually worth something to somebody, and I think that is pretty important for any self-produced musician.
