“During 35 years in the music industry, I’ve never known a more exciting time for new music than the present. Writers and musicians today have unparallelled opportunities for getting heard and building a global fanbase. It’s no longer essential to be wealthy or well-connected: all you have to be is good.”
BBC Introducing: Fresh On The Net showcases four hours of new online music every week, as recommended by listeners, musicians and tastemakers across the BBC. New Music Strategies attempts to unpick what’s going on in the online music environment – and develop strategies to help independent musicians in a changing media environment.
