Music Industry’s Crystal Ball Where do we go from here? The “Silver Conductor”
Someone I turn to often to find answers because of his uncanny way of telling it like it really is when it comes to the fickleness of the industry and the way the mass buying public is being manipulated by those who used to have complete control of the artists,labels and distribution of product. Thank God for the INTERNET.
Here is what some are saying about what the industry’s future holds.

As you can see a lot of people are interested in the shrinking industry whose revenues went from a $32 Billion dollar industry to just over $16 Billion which comparatively speaking against the percentages the true and real music content providers Artist,Songwriters,Musicians, and many behind the scenes personnel, the real April Fool’s joke is on them.
The blame is being placed on everyone but those who could have made a big difference in the way the revenues could have been more evenly divided, but that wasn’t apart of the original conversation of the powers that be at the time. The real power now is those that embrace the power of engagement with the final judges, YOU Me We,the buying consumer.
Look at the females of the industry and the names of the Top earners.
As far as Independent Artists are concerned, the FREEDOM the internet brings is great but the compensation comparatively is a real April Fools Joke.
I will have to add the my dear friend The “Silver Conductor” whose blog you on is doing things right. Mastering the social media game, all the while giving us some AWESOME never before heard independent music I am in love with. As he says “Diversify” baby!
This industry’s thinking needs a massive mental “Change Up” says The SC. I often wonder what was beside fame and fortune most artist stung by the I’ve got to become famous bug where thinking really back in the day when most where just slaves to the environment called the Major label record deal.

Music Industry’s Crystal Ball where do we go from here? The “Silver Conductor” sadly could be true call for help when you look at things, even the so called experts are at a loss because the real losers here besides the content providers will be the buying public when artists, musicians and songwriters say let’s decide on a rebellion.Imagine a life without music? there is no way life as we know could survive or would we really want to? Silent movie era all over again,I don’t think so.Boredom and psychiatric care would sky rocket to an all time high in human existence.
So when all is said and done I’m hoping that the engaged smart consumer realizes his and her power and that ALL things are in their POWER of consumerism.
As my dear friend The “Silver Conductor” always says:
