We definitely need more artistic advocates such as herself to ensure that there aren’t any more quote unquote starving artist out in the world. People should be paid for their craft.

My opinion on the content of this article is that this is a good thing to shine light on in the music industry because she speaks on the fact that stronger legislation is needed to make sure artists are paid for their digital works. My comments on the reliability of the source are positive because as an artist myself it kind of makes you feel low when everyone is benefiting from your creativity besides you. I believe the source is a major informational resource for audio industry professionals because they keep us posted on things that are currently going on in the music industry.

This could be a huge deal in the hip hop/music industry. I feel like a company like Apple signing artist could really change the landscape of the music industry.
Alex Redman's curator insight, January 26, 12:06 AM
This article is showing that Apple is taking a stance on supporting independent artists and creator empowerment. By signing a French rap duo that does not work under a label and owns their own creative rights, Apple is suggesting that independent artists deserve respect and freedom to partner with services without the intervention of labels. It is an optimistic move, especially since Apple proved their stance is serious after signing Frank Ocean as an independent artist around the same time frame.

I believe that Rolling Stone is a major informational resource for audio industry professionals after evaluating the source for credibility. The author is Tim Ingham. At the bottom of the article, it offers a short bio about Tim and his credentials, as well as stating that he writes weekly articles for Rolling Stone. The article is objective, giving many different sources for its information. These references are also accurate, with links to assertions linked throughout the article. Rolling Stone is a long established source for music entertainment news, and can be trusted for continually updated content.

Music streaming are starting to replace old-school record labels in offering advances to independent artists. With Apple signing acts, it appears as if the streaming services may become the new norm; replacing traditional record labels.
Kodie Tillman's curator insight, May 24, 8:52 PM
I think it’s great that artist have more ways they can be independent. I also think it’s good that big companies are stepping in to help these artists gain a foothold in the main stream music scene. To own everything you have created is a beautiful thing.

Akeem Scott's curator insight, February 23, 8:04 PM
For the question of the the article, " Would you invest your own music into your favorite artist music," I would say no I wouldn't. even if the artist are making that amount of money on these music programs, They are still making a lot of money off of them. Not to mention this is only one of many source of income for these artist.
caelan's curator insight, March 22, 6:25 PM
i Think its import for people to start investing in artist because it could boos the whole industry and  could help boos the artist and if they blow up then the money is double or even better which just creates a better environment  
Rolling stone is the biggest new reporting crew for the music industry and its very reliable

This deal further the changes in the independent scene in the music industry making it look like the best way to go in the future is independent route instead of an major.
Alex Redman's curator insight, January 26, 12:17 AM
This article details a positive shift forward for label companies and artist ownership over creative rights. Although labels are still involved, Warner Bros has achieved a balance that focuses on an artist-first approach that gives artists direct ownership over their masters and creative rights, as well as profit sharing over royalties. This shift will encourage the further independence emerging over this next decade.

After investigating the source, I believe this article is a major informational resource for audio industry professionals. The article is written by Tim Ingham, who has a bio that states his credentials as a consistent journalist for music and entertainment news across web platforms. The article was objective, giving only the facts of the situation and the opinions of experts in the field. These facts are accurate and links to further research is given throughout the article. The article was written in August 1, 2019 which is extremely recent in music news, only about half a year old.

This is powerful and music industry changing.

First, in November last year, we had Taylor Swift inking a global deal with Republic Records / Universal Music Group – an agreement under which she appears likely to license her music rights to UMG on a relatively short-term basis. “It’s incredibly exciting to know that I’ll own all of my masters from now on,” said Swift on Instagram when announcing that agreement. “It’s really important to me to see eye to eye with a label regarding the future of our industry.” Those words, of course, became all the more prescient last month, thanks to Swift’s masters-related public fallout with Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun. This week, another major music industry player is stating their joy at having struck a major label deal whereby masters are retained. This time, it’s not an artist doing the celebrating, but Pat Corcoran – the super-manager of Chance The Rapper, and therefore a key architect of one of the most talked about label-free artist campaigns of recent years.
