We have three new podcast episodes out and about -- listen on your favorite podcast app.  We also were mentioned in the Billboard top music business programs article, which we wanted to share.  

Thanks to our Center friends that we saw at the June Music Industry Research Association conference..  We enjoyed seeing people we hadn't seen in a while.  Thanks to Jeannie and Alan for running such an intriguing set of panels and conversations.

3 New Podcast Episodes

Innovating Music Podcasts

We have shared three new podcasts since our last newsletter:
  • Songwriters + Global  Digital Streaming: At MusicBiz in Nashville in May 2018, Joe Conyers from Songtrust and Downtown Music Publishing shared his thoughts and experiences about a wide variety of international and domestic songwriter royalty, rights, markets, and metadata issues.  Website link
  • Playlists: A Revolution for Artists: Andrea Young from Koral Young sees playlisting as a revolution for artists.  She shared a lot of basics of how to engage with both your fans and playlisters to create a thoughtful playlisting strategy for artists at different stages of their careers.  Website link
  • Music 3.0: Today's podcast is with Vickie Nauman from CrossBorderWorks, along with Andrea Young from Koral Young.   In May, Vickie had written an article for Rethink Music called "Coexisting Music Ecosystems," about Music 3.0.  Music 1.0 in this discussion was music sold as physical goods and Music 2.0 was the world of digital music.  Vickie spoke about how the Music 2.0 world “bent” the existing ecosystems and infrastructures, trying to make them work for a downloading and early streaming world.  Music 3.0 is needing new pipes and systems, and is not just direct-to-fan options. It is rebuilding assumptions on how we market, finance, and create music.

Billboard June Article

We enjoyed seeing so many music industry programs that we enjoy in the June Billboard article on top Music Business programs.  We enjoyed being mentioned from the UCLA Alpert music industry program, and the callout on The Lab.
