What are the issues facing new artists in a rapidly changing music industry?

This page is your opportunity to contribute your thoughts and ideas, to share your opinions with other people in the industry.

We want to hear your thoughts, on the media, social media, on venues, on audiences, pay-to-play, the economics of being in a band, the importance of image, record companies, promoters, marketing.

This page will collect your opinions and comments.

What is the new band scene like in your part of the world? What can you learn from other scenes elsewhere?

Send us your opinions and we’ll turn them into web pages and hopefully build a resource that’s useful to upcoming artists everywhere.
