Music revenues are up, with more formats than ever before, but still a third down on the peak of 2002.
25% are spent into A & R to develop new music and it is crucially important to have investment in new talent coming through and for the grassroots to be supported. Also important to have curators.
We have to ask - can we be passive or engage in shaping our own choices?
