Interesting news on the music biz front.

April 5, 2008

The future of music blog that I regularly read had this to say about EMI’s recent big hire:

“EMI has hired Douglas Merrill from Google to head up its overall digital music group. The hiring of Merrill, Googles former CIO, who has no background in music sales, represents an acknowledgment of how important digital distribution and technology is to the future of the music industry, and to EMI in particular. Merrill says he’s all about applying what he learned from Google about the Internet, digital distribution, and innovation. Expect to see EMI experimenting with different business and distribution models.”

As many may or may not know, the music business is changing and I would encourage other artists to take note of what is happening and align yourself to be able survive…or exist.
