The music business is in serious trouble. Or is it? There are endless opinions on the subject. Some people think the music business is done, that Elvis has left the building permanently, pushed out a 10th floor window by the internet. Others believe that technology has brought about a state of democracy that has levelled the playing field. So who's right? That depends on your perspective. On "How To Fix The Music Business", people from all sides of the music industry share their perspectives about the past, present and future of business. They shar their stories and opinions about what is broken and how to fix it - or how to kill it - without filters and without BS. Everyone appearing on the show has put in their 10,000 hours - so the opinions shared are qualified opinions. "How To Fix The Music Business" is hosted by music industry veteran Jim McDermott, who has over 30 years experience in artist development and new technology at major labels, and with independent and major label artists.

Hooked from 1st listen

Great first episode with Pearl Jam's fan club GM. Excited for more!

Music Business Reality

What a nice departure from people who analyze the future of the music business but never really worked in it. Jim's got the history and his interviews are smart, funny and to the point. Imagine the Music Business is sleeping in a soft bed and everyone is gently asking it to wake up. Jim's podcast wakes it up like a bucket of ice water getting dumped over its head. Can't recommend this podcast enough!

For anyone in the Music Biz, a must listen

OK, hooked from the get-go. Listened to the first two episodes back to back. Intelligent interesting discussion and analysis in interviews with music biz pro's who you absolutely WANT to listen to. And host Jim McDermott, an active industry veteran himself, asks thoughtful questions totally tapped into the now. In this toss up we currently call the music industry, this kind of discussion is what will help us move forward. I'll be awaiting every episode. Highly recommend it to all fellow musicians and all in the biz!
