Smartlinking services like Linkfire are now ubiquitous to music fans and industry alike: they have become essential glue that holds all the disparate areas of the business together, sending fans from one place to another, and generating income along the way. We chat to Linkfire CEO Lars Ettrup about this quietly powerful sector, and we ask him if smartlinks are empowering independence for DIY artists, and if they even need a traditional website in an age where the most important URL for them to share is a smartlink. PLUS: Lars announces that Linkfire has just acquired a major competitor.

    Music Ally Focus #42: Christine Osazuwa, Strategy Director for Pollen Presents, talks about turning artist-fan engagement into income in 2022

    22:08

    The long-held assumption is that artists make music, and that music is then the core connection between the artist and the fan – as well as the thing that is monetised. But that paradigm is rapidly changing. Christine Osazuwa, Strategy Director for Pollen Presents, speaks to Music Ally's Editor Joe Sparrow about how artists can and should seek new streams of income outside of the traditional sources of recording royalties and live tickets/merch – and how to connect with fans using platforms that allow direct relationships, and allow monetisation of the fandom itself via subscriptions, tips and exclusive offers. Christine is also founder of  Measure of Music – part conference, part hackathon – which is happening in February (https://measureofmusic.com) and she is moderating at the NY:LON Connect conference (nylonconnect.com), which returns for its sixth edition online over January 18-21 2022. 👋 Music Ally’s free weekly newsletter, The Knowledge: musically.lnk.to/knowledgepo Ⓜ️ Subscribe to Music Ally's industry-standard analysis, reporting and news: musically.com/subscribe Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/musicallybiz Twitter: https://twitter.com/musically Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/musicallyfb

    41:02

    Every December, Music Ally publishes its hotly-anticipated Sandbox Campaigns of the Year issue, which rounds up the best, most innovative and interesting campaigns of the previous 12 months – and 2021’s is the biggest ever. (There's a link to the report below). It's an incredibly useful resource for anyone planning marketing in 2022: so in this podcast we invited three of Music Ally’s marketing experts to pick out two of the winning campaigns they liked the most.  We speak to Eamonn Forde, compiler of the Marketing Campaigns of the Year list, and who has recently published a book called Leaving The Building: The Lucrative Afterlife Of Music Estates, on how the music industry ensures that pop stars are lucrative even after they die – which is a hint as to which campaigns he picked. We also hear from Magda Jędrzejewska, Music Ally's Marketing Executive, and Marlen Hüllbrock, Music Ally’s Head of Marketing Services. They have all picked very different, very innovative campaigns –  and all share great insight into how they worked so well.

    Music Ally Focus #38: Private equity funds are paying top dollar for music catalogue. Will publishers be drawn into a bidding war & will new artists suffer? Music-tech strategist Dan Fowler explains.

    28:07

    Private equity funds and firms like Hipgnosis are scooping up music catalogues. And 60% of Hipgnosis’s expensively-purchased catalogue of music is over ten years old, with only 2.5% under 3 years old. Will major publishers and labels be drawn into a bidding war over copyrights, and will new artists suffer as a result?  Music-tech strategist Dan Fowler recently wrote a fascinating article called “The Changing Landscape of Music Publishing” which aimed to figure out what the impact of the big catalogue purchases of Hipgnosis and private equity funds like  Blackstone, KKR, and Apollo would be on major publishers. In this podcast he explains how: Hipgnosis may not be overpaying for rights, and are in fact establishing a new market value,  what it means when staggeringly wealthy firms that are focused on pure financial profit get involved in the music rights industry, what the possibly-worrying impact will be on new music and musicians, how it's only going to get harder for new musicians to make a living from streaming and royalties.

    Music Ally Focus #36: Chris Howard, CEO of The Rattle explains why "music-tech is really, really, really boring" – and why the future for many artists is as the "CEO of their own small enterprises"

    28:51

    Music Ally recently published its Q3 2021 report, which focused on music/tech startups and the future fo the music industry. In the report, we spoke to Chris Howard, serial entrepreuer, and CEO of The Rattle, which operates in London, Los Angeles and New York City. The Rattle stands “as a counter-culture to the traditional music and startup industries,” and what Howard said in our report - in particular his critique of the music industry’s (in)ability to engage with technology – ruffled a few feathers. So obviously, we asked him back to expand on his thoughts. In this podcast, he explains why he said that music tech is "really really really boring" and how artists are going to start viewing themselves as the CEOs of their own small enterprises – which creates many more options and entirely new business models using technology adjacent to the music industry.  Here's our interview with Rishi Patel and John Acquaviva of Plus Eight Equity Partners. 👋 Music Ally’s free weekly newsletter, The Knowledge: musically.lnk.to/knowledgepo 🧐 You can find our Q3 report here: musically.com/reports Ⓜ️ Subscribe to Music Ally's industry-standard analysis, reporting and news: musically.com/subscribe Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/musicallybiz Twitter: https://twitter.com/musically Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/musicallyfb

    Music Ally Focus #35: want to understand the Indian music markets in 2021? Start here: Amit Gurbaxani, music industry journalist, gives us his expert insight

    32:02

    Special guest Amit Gurbaxani recently wrote an article for us on the Indian All About Music music industry conference, and here, he gives us his expert insight into the Indian music markets. He chatted to Joe Sparrow about three of the key topics, and answered some questions submitted via social media. He spoke about how there is appetite – and money – for international touring acts in India, but not a live venue infrastructure yet; how Indian music is not just about Bollywood and that regional pop is enormous – and can be truly measured for the first time; and much more. It's a fascinating insight into India's multi-faceted music markets. Here are the articles written by Amit that were mentioned in the podcast: How a Canadian Punjabi hip-hop song became Spotify India’s biggest hit: musically.com/2021/08/02/big-bang-reads-how-a-canadian-punjabi-hip-hop-song-became-spotify-indias-biggest-hit Spotlight on India: the rapid growth of regional Indian language music: musically.com/2021/08/02/spotlight-on-india-the-rapid-growth-of-regional-indian-language-music Independent music, not Bollywood, may be India’s global crossover: musically.com/2021/03/08/independent-music-not-bollywood-may-be-indias-global-crossover 👋 Music Ally’s free weekly newsletter, The Knowledge: musically.lnk.to/knowledgepo 🧐 You can find our Q3 report here: musically.com/reports Ⓜ️ Subscribe to Music Ally's industry-standard analysis, reporting and news: musically.com/subscribe Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/musicallybiz Twitter: https://twitter.com/musically Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/musicallyfb

    Music Ally Focus #34: what coming music/tech is most exciting and how will it change the music business? VC investors Rishi Patel and John Acquaviva of Plus Eight Equity Partners share their thoughts

    35:43

    Music Ally has just published its Q3 2021 report, which focused on music/tech startups. For the report, we spoke to Rishi Patel and John Acquaviva of music/tech investors Plus Eight Equity about how they see the future of the industry, and they kindly agreed to dig deeper into their thoughts in this podcast. Rishi and John explain to Music Ally's Joe Sparrow how the creator economy is a huge focus for them; how the incumbent music business companies “have a gun to their heads” and will be forced to adapt quickly to rapidly-evolving technology; how realistic uses of NFTs in music will likely be for digitised collector editions of music and merch; and how the “wildcard” is the metaverse – and how that may in turn drive up the value of NFTs. 👋 Music Ally’s free weekly newsletter, The Knowledge: musically.lnk.to/knowledgepo 🧐 You can find our Q3 report here: musically.com/reports Ⓜ️ Subscribe to Music Ally's industry-standard analysis, reporting and news: musically.com/subscribe Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/musicallybiz Twitter: https://twitter.com/musically Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/musicallyfb

    Music Ally Focus #33: is music metadata really "broken"? Special guest Richard Gooch, CTO of the IFPI (and who is in charge of ISRC codes!) explains how the system delivers data around the world

    22:01

    In this episode, CTO of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (which represents the interests of the global recording industry)  Richard Gooch joins us to talk about metadata. He says that the idea that “music metadata is broken” is a misconception. He explains the new systems that he says form the infrastructure for a fairer music industry – for everyone from superstars to new artists in existing territories in sub-Saharan Africa, where the IFPI has a particular current focus. He also talks about improvements that could be made, how performing rights reporting can change, and the changes he hopes music metadata will bring.
