Today on the 4th, a day of our country’s independence, my music protest TeXas Video Showdown, crossed another small milestone. The video has added another 100 views.
Recently I wrote to my online music distributor CD Baby about the protest. They are having a musical conference soon. I suggested that the music industry needs a change and that they should cover that at the conference.
I think unless we oppose the music industry controlled by 3 CEO’s, no CD Baby musician, or any musician anywhere has a fair chance for a career.
Here is my letter and their reply. Thanks CD Baby.
Will you be discussing the music protest against 3 CEO’s running music, and only supporting teen pop?
The protest is from Dallas, supports all musicians and opposes a music industry down to 3 companies that control 80%.
Hope you will. That change alone would help everyone have a chance at a career.
Sometimes a little protest brings vitality to the music industry. It sure could use it now.
This post is about the 3 men that control all the music.
That is not an exaggeration, it is a fact.
Here is the video
Here is a blog post about it.
