An Artist’s View of the Modern Music Biz
An anonymous reader writes “A member of the band OK Go wrote an interesting open letter giving an artist’s perspective on the current state of the music business and how labels finance producing, distributing, and marketing music and music videos. A very insightful perspective of ‘both sides’: the argument that music and music videos are meant to be heard and, in the case of the latter, seen by a wide audience; and the argument that the money needs to come from somewhere. Unfortunately, the letter doesn’t address the perspective outsiders have of outlandish salaries in the music labels, but it is interesting nonetheless.” Their new video is not bad either.
