DIMA CEO Garrett Levin said, “The story of music in 2021 was defined by the amazing artists, both familiar and new, who were able to harness the power of streaming to connect with fans. This year, we celebrated the gradual return of live music a year after most in-person concerts were shuttered, while recognizing that challenges still remain. A bright spot amidst the continued Covid-related uncertainty is that we again saw growing numbers of fans eager to discover new artists and follow their careers, reconnect with old favorites, and listen to the artists and songwriters they love via streaming.”
