Jermarcus Brown's curator insight, November 13, 2016 5:06 PM

The way I see this is, You have artist that want some fans actually Buying cd's. So even though the streaming could be a good thing, Most labels pay out more for actual cd's hard copy. Streaming actual have a big lawsuit on alot of music now. Many people can go on youtube and find a song or instrumental and find a internet source to download it for free now they have a free track. artists are not getting paid nor labels. I feel as if we want to get our payout for our music we need to come up with a source to pay artist for only the music that they actual want to put out and no one can download it for free with out there approvel.

Michael Hooper's curator insight, November 13, 2016 8:23 PM

This article is current and quotes many valuable credible members in the music industry from major record labels. It was written to inform people about how streaming is now changing the source of income in the music industry from retail to steaming and paid subscription services.  Like Netflix and Hulu are to blame for the decrease in retail movie sales, pandora and other music streaming sites have did the same to cd sales. Although this is happening and may have changed the  music industry the tech companies that run and support the sites aren't making much of a profit.

Chris Graves's curator insight, October 19, 2016 8:07 PM

This post discusses the ways that the Adidas brand is expanding into the music industry. Although other shoe companies have ties in entertainment, Adidas was one of the first to actually stack its roster. By releasing sneakers for artists, as well as athletes, Adidas is able to appeal to a wider audience.

 

I believe this is a beneficial trend for the music industry. By providing support, both financial and social, these companies are helping to bridge the gap between two massive markets. The divisions between people who wear certain types of shoes are different than the divisions between genres of music. By appealing to multiple demographics at once, there is a higher possibility of popularity within each community.

Christopher Nicodemus Dean's curator insight, December 11, 2016 1:58 AM

I feel that it's great that many different brand name companies are tapping into the music industry. Many artist promote their brands through music majority of the time so I feel it's only right that this decision is put into effect. It will also open plenty of doors for artist as far as sponsorship's and endorsement deals. This move will be a Win/Win for the artists and the Companies because it will inspire other to do the same and  it will evolve the industry in a major way.

Michael Hooper's curator insight, November 13, 2016 8:28 PM

This article explains how streaming platforms are now the new gatekeepers of the music industry intertwining music and technology. They have taken over aspects that labels use to handle such as discovery, distribution and creation of music. I love streaming music from Pandora and YouTube because it gives me access to anything I want to hear and whenever I want it. This gives the consumer more power when It comes to what songs get played on the radio and which songs are on the charts making it harder for labels to control the music scene.

Christopher Nicodemus Dean's curator insight, December 11, 2016 2:07 AM

I feel like Indie Labels are the new wave of the industry. They have full control of how their organization is ran and also they earn back from everything they put out without anyone else cutting into their hard work. Major label will still survive in the industry but I also feel Indie Label will have their shine for many years to come very soon. 

joseph martino's curator insight, December 11, 2016 2:17 AM

As with most other businesses, the traditional role of record label has become a re-defined thing from the past. With high risk investment, labels spend up to 15% on artist development as competition gets fiercer. In response to these challenges, artists are becoming more entrepreneurial, exerting more control on their individual brands. The rapid growth of social media sites has provided a viable platform where all aspects of exposure are used to connect with the consumer. A closer relationship is built with artist and customer with several attractive features including access to external links and flexible price structures. With all of this consumer friendly treatment, it's a wonder how anybody can stay in the business. Fortunately, artists partner up with additional labels as well. Plus, the inter-dependence with the tech industry provides a direct connection with an infinite audience.
