Budgets are small, retail is dying, streaming is king and studios are closing… yet devoted music professionals continue to make records for a living. How are they doing it? How are they getting paid? What type of contracts are they commanding? In a world where the “record” has become an artists’ business card, how will the producer and mixer derive participatory income? Are studio professionals being left out of the so-called 360 deals? How can we expect to see any income from streaming royalties when artists aren't even seeing any? Let’s get a quality bunch of young rising producers and a handful of seasoned vets in a room and finally open the discussion about empowerment and controlling our own destiny.
