Who Stole the Music Business? And How You Can Get a Piece of the Loot? - hypebot



The music business has been and is continuing to be a tough nut to crack. lt takes an unmatched work ethic to be competitive and it takes a lot of time and consistency to turn that into success. It is possible if you take into account the changes that have occured in the industry and capitolize on the opportunity to turn new marketing avenues into solid revenue streams.

Kurt Sutter Attacks Google Over Copyright Law, Piracy: Guest Column | Variety



Google is in the process of systematically destroying our artistic future, and more importantly, the future of our children and grandchildren. They’re spending tens of millions of dollars each year on eroding creative copyright laws. I believe that if the creative community doesn’t intervene now, and by now, I mean, f'ing now — we will be bound to a multigenerational cluster**** that will take 40 to 50 years to unravel.

Shawn Mendes (and Team): From 6 Second Vine Clips To An iTunes No. 1 - hypebot



Shawn Mendes' self-titled EP is currently no. 1 on the iTunes Albums chart and apparently it took him only 37 minutes to get there. Though he now has a strong presence beyond Vine, it was on the 6-second video sharing service where he got his start. The transition from Vine to YouTube, let alone major label artist status, is in no way assured as other artists are finding out. For Mendes the ability to transition, seemingly without effort, from unsigned to Island Records' artist while maintaining a strong direct connection to his fans is making the difference. I'm just getting...

'Purple Rain' Taught Me How To Be In A Band : NPR



I was a young drummer starting a band with classmates at Indiana University, which would eventually get a short stint as Motown recording artists, playing throughout the Midwest and even in Japan. Watching Purple Rain, before all that would happen, felt a bit like seeing an autobiography, set to the baddest music around.

A band is essentially a marriage with three or four or eight or ten people. It requires you to spend outlandish amounts of time together, sweating to make the kind of art that might move a few hearts and allow you to earn a living besides.

After YouTube’s Indie Label Catastrophe, Why Did Spotify Let Google Buy Its Way



You’ve all been following YouTube’s absolutely tone deaf “take it or leave it” brinksmanship strategy with indie labels represented by Merlin and WIN. This one sided “negotiation” appears to still be grinding on. Why would it take so long? Why wouldn’t YouTube simply say, we’ll treat you like everyone else and close up the problem.

So what is Google’s next move to calm the waters? Google buys its way onto the Spotify board and the Spotify board allowed them to do it.

Working on the road can be an amazing experience in the Live Sound world.

You get to see new things and places all over the world, learn new stuff, meet interesting people, and all while getting paid.

And in my experience on the road, I saved boat loads of money up that I used for fun, education, investing, and buying yummy tacos and rolls of sushi.

I had a chance recently to catch up with my friend Jeff Wuerth of audio production company Clair Global, to get insider strategies to land live sound jobs.

Jeff has had an amazing career so far working on tour recently with Jay-Z on the Magna Carter US tour, Maroon 5 as their monitor technician, as well as previous jobs working live sound for Kelly Clarkson, Paul McCartney, Adam Lambert, Kenny Chesney and more. He's also doing more work as the system engineer for live production shows.

We did a short 10 question interview where you'll learn things like:

-Why working live sound on tour can be rewarding
-How to find live sound jobs and what to look for in companies
-Things to avoid in the live sound industry
-Essential skills you should have if your new to live sound or coming out of the studio
-What work days look like on the road
-Challenges and how to keep your edge
-And more...

If you're interested in getting into the intriguing world of Live Sound Production then read on and learn more from Jeff.
