DMT 85 – Looking at the Featured Artist Coalition

Digital Music Trends Audio show

Summary: This week on the show an interview with Mark Kelly, the CEO of the Featured Artists Coalition (FAC) - also well known as the keyboard player in the band Marillion. In the interview we talk about the FAC and its main objectives, the challenges that are facing featured artists in navigating the digital domain both in terms of managing new revenue streams and managing their own presence online as a brand, pan-european licensing and the shift in mindset from rights-holders as the perceived value of music slips. This week’s show is not all about digital music technology but I hope that it will be appreciated by the many artists who listen to the podcast! Have a great week and ’till next time Andrea Leonelli
