Global recorded music industry revenues topped $20bn last year – but streaming growth slowed | New Music Industry | Scoop.it

This relates to my topic because Taylor Swift streaming only went down because she hasn't been releasing new music for her fans during struggling times.
DalynFranzoni's curator insight, May 24, 11:45 PM
As music keeps being made and broadcasted, so are movies, news channels, advertisements, but strictly I'm going to share my thoughts on the music industry. As technology gets easier to use, so do softwares and hardwares, speaking from experience, making music gets easier and easier as time passes by. Not only are there courses to takes but many people are broadcasting videos on how to make music. I'm not saying its the easiest thing in the world but after you pick up the learning curve, it becomes easier to create. After its made, people have every right to publish and post their music to broadcasting softwares, as long as they follow specific guidelines as there creating/submitting their work. Once somebody succeeds, they start to get views or listens, which starts the money making process. Its easy to get people hooked on spending their money on broadcasting software subscriptions to have unlimited use and downloads of the music they enjoy.

A Conversation With Zoe Keating: From Emily White's "How to Build a Sustainable Music Career and Collect All Revenue Streams"

Bianca Mari''s curator insight, April 26, 10:54 PM
This article was VERY short, but I'm always looking for a great book to read to better my knowledge in this ever-changing industry. My dad always said, 'Obtaining it is the easy part, keeping it is the hard part.' There are many resources out there on how to start a music career but not too many that I know of to 'sustain' that said career.

The source is very reliable. You can get a great preview of the book on the link provided along with a detailed background on the author. The sight also provides a bunch of great sources. This source had the authority, objectivity, accuracy, and currency when using the 'Evaluating Sources' guide.

I haven't ready the book yet, but the article was very convincing. I would actually be interested in purchasing the book. I believe in my eyes that this has great potential to be a major resource for entry-level audio industry professionals.

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.

In India, Prateek Kuhad is arguably the most popular singer-songwriter performing mostly in English. Kuhad recently spoke to Billboard about breaking into the US, changes in the Indian music scene and why he doesn’t want his Indianness to be a talking point.
Tyran Lewis's curator insight, May 2, 10:19 AM
In my opinion, this is a movement the audio industry should set its eyes on. As one entering the industry I believe we should integrate more foreign culture into our American culture and make history. Nowadays more and more countries are picking up and adapting to our everyday music genres knocking at our front door. I say we let them in and harness what they can do and bring to the table and that my friends is the evolution of music. And the fact that there are artists out there who are humble enough to go out and make based on sheer talent and not the gimmick of his ethnicity says a lot so the package is there we just have to receive it.

The billboard is one the most notable sources out there so when they bring forth anything to the table I take it as reliable. Artists and creators involved battle everyday just to mentioned by or put upon the billboard charts so I take it as reliable. Also, it shows that the billboard not only has its sights on what’s going on here at home but also what’s across seas waiting to break off here as well.

Whether the source is a major informational resource for audio industry professionals is most definite. Audio industry professionals work to dominate the billboards, award shows, and anything the entertainment world legitimately acknowledges.

jonathan3banks@gmail.com's curator insight, March 23, 11:14 AM
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.
