My current issue on the future of the music business.
For better or worse, the major labels funded the career development process for recording artists for many years. Now that these labels are less able and/or less inclined the make the sustained investment in artist development, who is best position and who should pick up the artist development mantle? Is it the major live music promoters? Is it the phone companies and the cellular industry? Is it the Apple Computers? Microsoft? Facebook? Myspace? Sponsorship Companies? Who stands the most to gain from the investment in the new careers in music?
Send me your thoughts. I will summarize the input in a future Music Bizz Fizz blog. Dan@musicbizzfizz.com
