One note we wanted to share with you all is a report from Citi called, “Putting The Band Back Together”. You can read it here. In their 88-page report, they surmise that artists actually only make 12% of revenue from the music industry and most of that is made from touring. While physical sales have stalled and streaming has risen, there are still many different avenues for artists to make money. The report offers the idea for online platforms and booking agents to join forces and form new version of record labels. We digress from this point and implore those of us who do work in this industry to think harder and find new innovative ways of looking at the definition of success in this industry.
