Just before Christmas I wrote my first blog for the MIDEM site – if you don’t know, that’s a big music industry conference held every January in Cannes, France.

I tried to make the post reflect my view that ‘direct to fan’ is an essential method that all musicians need to use to build their careers but I also wanted to show that many musicians still want a record deal or some other kind of partner to help them succeed.

It’s more business centric than what I write here and on the main site but I think it’s good – read it there.
