Huge PPP Loans For Major Artists Made Public

 LISTEN TO THE EPISODE:

SUMMARY:

Lot's of major artists such as Luke Combs, Tim McGraw, Chris Stapelton, Guns N Roses, The Eagles, Kanye West, Nickelback ad others had their names publically released by several publications last week showing the amount of money each applied for and received as a part of the government PPP program. The amounts ranged from $150,000 all the way up to 6 million. These bands are businesses and have employees to pay, but some of these artists could've paid their employees out of their pockets and still been extremely wealthy, but chose to take free money from the government. In this episode, I give my opinion on the situation and take a hard look at how the events of the last 4 months have taken their toll on the music industry ad the business behind it.

Is Your Music In Good Hands?

 

WATCH THE VIDEO:

 SUMMARY:

The most important job of any artist is to make sure that your music is both available everywhere and easy to find. The distributor that you choose to deliver your music to the streaming and sales platform matters!

Over the past couple of years, I have checked out and researched several different digital distributors, everyone from DistroKid and Ditto, to AWAL and Tunecore. Each has its benefits and problems, but the main thing I look for is making sure that your music is safe and will not get taken down for a variety of reasons.

The one thing I have found through all of my research is that You Get What You Pay For. The less expensive the cost, the more at risk your music is!

Is Songwriting Still A Profession?

 

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST:

 SUMMARY:

Is Songwriting Still A Profession? The music business has changed a lot over the years, but none of the changes have affected anyone more than the songwriters. As someone who has made an amazing living writing songs for the last 15 years, I had to address the elephant in the room.

There used to be a great marriage between songwriters and artists, labels and publishers. Writers wrote the songs and artists sang them. This marriage was very profitable for many years, but like many marriages, the honeymoon is over, as is the union.

With sales declining, labels are now turning their artists into songwriters to capitalize on lost sales revenue that comes from physical and digital sales. The 360 deal is in full effect. When an artist signs a 360 deal, they are...
