BTB Podcast! Episode 138: Is Spotify declaring war on record labels?; Laurens Kusters talks about Indie NinjaJuly 8, 2018 / No Comments
Hi Podcast Listeners! The Podcast now has its own Twitter account! Visit us @thebtbpodcast.
This week, Ryan talks about a recent article by Greg Puciato of Dillinger Escape Plan. The article talks about the value in maintaining your independence as a musician. The content of the article is interesting, but what is more interesting is the fact that article came out on one of Spotify’s blog pages. Is Spotify trying to send a message to artists? Are they trying to draw musicians away from labels? Big implications there. Ryan also sits down with industry executive and startup technologist Laurens Kusters (@BKLarrydotcom). He gives us some great tips on how to delegate tasks in your music career. He also talks about his new platform Indie Ninja (@indiedotninja), an online marketplace where artists can buy and sell services to run their music careers. You can find out more about it at www.indie.ninja.
