Navigating the Music Industry’s New Normal with Manager Rishon Blumberg

Musicians are suffering and venues have closed. On this week's podcast episode, Rishon Blumberg of Brick Wall Management explores how artists are adapting to stay afloat during this global pandemic and navigate a world without touring. From Instagram livestreams to drive-in theater style concerts, what’s working to fill the gaps?

How are live albums and concert merch changing in the time of livestreaming? Artists are using this time to write and record loads of new material- but who’s to blame if their streaming payouts amount to pennies? Where does Rishon fall on Daniel Ek’s controversial statement on releasing new music constantly?

How are top tech talents like rock stars? Find out how Rishon translated his artist management experience into 10x Management, the first tech talent agency. His new book with co-founder Michael Solomon explores how to get the tenfold value that top talent can provide, and become a little more 10x yourself. Game Changer: How to be 10x in the Talent Economy is out 9/22/2020 from HarperCollins' Leadership imprint.
