An encouraging and empowering read,
This review is from: The Art of Music Publishing: An Entrepreneurial Guide to Publishing and Copyright for the Music, Film, and Media Industries (Paperback)
I have just finished reading The Art of Music Publishing which I found both inspiring and encouraging. No punches are pulled with regards to the current state of our music industry. The challenges it faces and the mistakes it has made, have been well documented and referenced but there is no doom and gloom in Helen Gammon's assessment about the industry's future. HG leaves the reader in no doubt that the impact of the digital revolution upon the music industry has been dramatic but the change it has brought about is good! Helen explains clearly why, and how to take best advantage of the new and emerging income streams. The Art of Music Publishing is a gateway into the hitherto mysterious world of Music Publishing, Record Labels,Lawyers,Artists, Producers. If the book was simply academic it would be called The Anatomy of Music Publishing but it is so much more, and it is so because HG has poured her life and experience into it with a passion and commitment that is infectious. This is a must have book for any songwriter, independent record label, startup publisher or music student. It includes many other valuable articles and comments written by contributors from all walks of the international music world and closes with an extremely challenging but necessary clarion call for the need of greater Corporate Social Responsibility in our banks, multinational corporations and businesses in general.
