Music industry returns to growth after 15 years in NZ, Kiwis wholeheartedly embracing streaming services

The traditional notion of the music industry has been well and truly dumped on its head over the past few years, since music started its march from CD shelves to digital shelves. Yesterday New Zealand’s music revenue results were released, showing just how quick and drastic this change has been, revealing that streaming is well and truly taking over.
