In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Michael Blue Williams, a manager, talks about the changes in the music industry from the 90’s to today. Record labels are now behind the curve trying to adapt after downloading hit the industry. Williams also explains how television provided too much access for artists. As a result, today’s aspiring artists believe it’s easy to get on television and become a star. He also blames today’s perception of easy stardom on generational differences. Unlike the generation of today, his generation grew up hustling which was the reason for their success. Also in this segment, Williams compares and contrasts the major route and indie route. Majors use a cookie cutter method but spend the promotional dollars. Indies are more personal but don’t provide the marketing dollars.
