The new HBO show Vinyl takes us back to a time when the record business really was about records. Now, it’s all about digital.
Technology has led to a lot of changes in the music business over the years, and the digital revolution has been a huge part of that.
No longer does a handful of big record labels control access to whom and to what we listen. That means individuals and smaller, independent labels actually have a chance at succeeding in what was once a very exclusive industry.
One indie label and artist management company that has had huge success is Everloving. It started back in 2001 with Jack Johnson’s debut album Brushfire Fairytales.
