This week, Ryan breaks down the bombshell music industry report from Citi, “Putting the Band Back Together: Remastering the World of Music.” He talks about the report’s conclusion that artists are only capturing 12% of the revenues generated by the music industry and discusses who are the “intermediaries” standing between artists and their fans that are keeping money out of artists’ pockets. You can read the report at citi.us/2KC0gjU.
In the second segment, Ryan sits down with acclaimed publicist Ariel Hyatt. Ryan and Ariel discuss charity/music crowdfunding projects. They also talk about Ariel’s latest initiative, Cyber PR Labs.
