The Essential Role Of Artist Management In A Post-Label World

London-based music managers James Barton and Brian Message have some very intelligent ideas about the future of music and business–or as they have named it: the “Post-Label World.”

via hypebot.com:

managers must recognize that “every artist is a standalone business that generates income from multiple revenue streams” and that a “manager’s job is to create those businesses and run them well.”

Here’s a quick list of my favorite points made in the article:

  • “artists – and their art – are the only real assets” — the components of the traditional music industry, from labels to publishers to merchandisers, should be “regarded primarily as service providers to artists.”
  • managers must focus on “accepting consumer behavior and looking for as many ways as possible to monetize it.”
  • managers and artists must leave “behind the notion that record sales are the key indicators of success.” In other words: focus on generating income from multiple revenue streams.

MC Lars on DIY Success & Making A Living In Music [video]

Your ultimate goal is to make a living with your music, right? Then listen to what MC Lars has to say.

via hypebot.com:

Since 2006, hip-hop artist MC Lars has been a poster boy for indie music success and the DIY work ethic. After a short-lived relationship with Terry McBride and the Canadian record label/management company Nettwerk five years ago, Lars formed his own label, Horris Records. Since then, he has taken his self-described “post-punk laptop rap” and delivered it to a target audience he calls the“iGeneration” — kids born between 1982 and 2000.

In the interview below, MC Lars reveals his approach to a DIY music career, making money as an indie musician, his advice for new artists, and much more.
