Joe Sparrow : Some things I have written for Music Ally
Here is a selection of the things I’ve written recently for the ace music business analysis, data, and news service Music Ally. (I’ll keep this updated as more stuff is published.)
MUSIC/TECH STARTUPS IN 2019: this was fun – I spoke to labels, lawyers and startups about what they all thought of each other, and, well, you can guess the rest.
WMG AND CAPITOL INNOVATION INTERVIEWS: these next two were quite fascinating interviews with the people charged at major labels – slow-moving but powerful beasts – with keeping up with, and incorporating, cutting-edge music-tech into the wider business.
- WMG – “Warner Music Group talks startups, technology and investment“
- CAPITOL – “Capitol Gains: Capitol Records talks innovation, startups and music“
STARTUP FILES: I’m writing a series of analysis and industry-connectivity pieces about new music-tech startups and how they fit in (or otherwise) with the ever-shifting Music Business. Only one of them got me in hot water so far.
