Now Playing Tracks

Why the Music Business is Doomed

Sitting at lunch in Burbank today, I was next to a Warner A&R guy who was talking about an artist he “found”. He said when he finally listened to the track, he felt it was “excruciatingly beautiful” but “painfully ordinary”. He continued to talk about how the artist felt that he was manipulating her, and he told her that it was “totally inconvenient” for him to even like her music, as he then told his lunch companion how he manipulated her into signing with the label.
