A look into the reality of how viable the brick and mortar retail record store still is, and how today's independent artist can get their music placed in them... as long as you take the time to do your homework and meet the right people in the right places.
We welcome James Donio, President of the Music Business Association, who shares his insight as to how the record business has not only evolved, but is once again thriving in a very competitive and saturated market place. With 30 years of experience under his belt, along with being an Adjunct Professor at MonMouth University in West Long Beach New Jersey, James lets us know that music is more than just merely a download or a stream. The physical CD and even vinyl record still has a place, and its a prime opportunity for the independent artist to make a footprint on a new landscape we call the music business.
