DMT 194: Independent music, Bandcamp, artist-fan relationship, YouTube, streaming…

To subscribe to Digital Music Trends’ weekly newsletter visit http://www.bit.ly/dmtlist

This week on Digital Music Trends a special show focused on independent music featuring Senior Editorial Analyst at Billboard Glenn Peoples (billboard.com), cellist and composer Zoë Keating (zoekeating.com) and solo bass guitarist Steve Lawson (stevelawson.net).

We chat about:

– Bandcamp, why does the platform work well for artists and why do artists identify with it? Zoë and Steve share how they got started on the platform and what it is about the service that works for them.

– How platforms like Patreon, Bandcamp and Pledge can facilitate an artist’s relationship with fans and what that relationship can mean to artists on both a human level and on a practical level.

– Streaming: how is it affecting “middle class” musicians and is the mainstream narrative of people’s shift to services like Spotify correct? Should artists have more of a say on the rates they are paid from streaming services or at least the ability to negotiate them?

– David Byrne’s latest comments on copyright review published by Glenn in a Billboard article this week.

– The Content Creators Coalition: can collective organisations help artists increase their bargaining power? Are there downsides?

– YouTutube’s music service: after a high-profile staff departure and several stumbling blocks what’s next for the yet-to-be announced service?



I really hope you enjoy this show, have a fantastic week and ’till next time!

Ep.43: Transmitter YouTube channel with the BPI and LoveLive (DMT 1-2-1)

This week on the DMT 1-2-1 show a feature on the new YouTube channel Transmitter launched as a joint venture between the BPI and LoveLive. Recorded at the Trasmitter studios, I chat with Geoff Taylor, Chief Executive at the BPI, and William McGillivray, Head of Content and Programming at LoveLive.

Transmitter launched in November 2013 as a response to the shrinking number of programs dedicated to music on TV, aiming to provide exposure to new and established British artists via a combination of YouTube-friendly video formats like live performances, incongruous cover versions, Q&As and special challenges. The channel is also planning to start live streaming shows on a regular basis starting as soon as February.

We talk about Transmitter’s origins and development, its aims, plans for growth, its reception by the labels/artists and much more.

I really hope you enjoy the show, have a great week and ’till next time!
