Music Entrepreneur Club founder Dame Ritter came back on the pod to help me break down four music industry myths:
– artists need to own everything. Ownership!
– I can’t make money on streaming
– NFTs will save me
– I’ll make all my money on tour
All of these takes need nuance, and there’s no better person to talk to than Dame. He ran Funk Volume, a former independent record label that hit $4M in sales in its first four years. On the episode we also talked about the comedians he manages, Bigg Jah and Minks, and the difference between artists and comics.
If you’ve been hearing a lot about ownership, music business models, and want more context, this is the episode for you.
