0:49 What is EmuBand all about?
02:11 How do bands react to EmuBand’s fixed fee for digital distribution?
03:30 Have you noticed a change in pattern in the way artists decide to structure their releases through the year (Albums vs EPs vs Singles)?
04:50 How do you keep track of all the releases coming into the system and match them to possible sync opportunities?
06:20 How do you find your own artists react towards streaming services and the revenues debate?
07:42 Do you have any international artists, from Asia for example, that are using your services to break into the Western market?
08:47 Out of the total traffic coming from the UK, how much is specifically from Scotland, and how’s the scene in Scotland at the moment?
10:02 What would say is the most vibrant city in Scotland in terms of the music scene?
11:00 With new companies coming into the field every week how do you select digital partners that it’s worth making a deal with?
