During the recent SF MusicTech Summit, our Director of Artist Relations Dave Cool spoke on the panel “Where's the Cash for Musicians Today and Beyond” along with Zack Greenburg (Forbes), Kristin Thomson (Future of Music Coalition), Wade Metzler (SoundExchange), J Sider (BandPage) and Amy Dietz (INgrooves).
It was a lively discussion about revenue streams, with a lot of great tips for how musicians should approach making money. Everything from live shows, merch, music sales, streaming and royalties, to alternative methods of generating income were covered.
He also at one point told an audience of mostly musicians that they should “go get a job”. Yes, that actually happened. And no, he didn’t win any popularity contests, but it went over surprisingly well!
SF MusicTech has released the audio for the panel, so you can listen to the full 1-hour discussion here:
