During MidemNet Techdirt's Mike Masnick gave this overview of Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails' album release and monetization strategy. At the risk of gushing, this is a must see for anyone who a part of or even interested in the new music business. I'll let the video and Masnick's accompanying article do the talking. But in case you need more convincing before you hit play, here is the formula" at the core of the presentation that I agree is the most viable path remaining to make money in the music business:Connect With Fans (CwF) + Reason To Buy (RtB) = The Business Model ($$$$)
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
