'Cash Me Outside' Girl Signing Marks the Official Split of the Music Industry (digitalmusicnews.com)

Great article this that picks up and identifies a shift in the industry that has taken place over some time now. The same change that shows why you will never see an artist like Prince or Bowie given the same platform or support by the majors. The encouraging part of this is the DIY culture, build your own platform


'And what is the other music industry existing right now? I call it the New Music Business. And it’s much more encouraging.

It is an industry existing completely outside TMZ culture. One that is not being written about by any of the culture rags. Or even Billboard very often. Because it’s not very sexy.

It is the industry of the independents. The working musicians. The DIYers damning the system and proclaiming they are not in it for quick fame and instant success, but because music is at the core of who they are. And they would rather build a career than chase fame.'
