This week, Ryan provides updates and analysis on the ongoing lawsuit between Avenged Sevenfold and their record label, Warner Bros.. The band is attempting to terminate their record deal early by utilizing the “Seven Year Rule” which limits the length of personal services contracts. The case looks like it is heading for a jury and, if the band prevails, it will have a huge impact on the music industry and all of its artists and labels. Watch this case carefully. It could have huge effects on your career.
Ryan also interviews Professor Tonya Butler this week. Professor Butler is the chair of the music business management program at the Berklee College of Music. She gives some terrific advice on branding and avoiding excuse making as an artist. Be sure to get a copy of her book “The Music Business is Corrupt…Or Maybe You Just Can’t Sing” on Amazon.
