There certainly is no dearth of music business news out there lately. . .what with all the junk about the music industry’s death and all, you’d think music blogs around the world would all be out looking for new gigs. Maybe writing about petrochemicals is the way to go? Hmm. . .I don’t know. . .
So with all this recent exposure It got me thinking about a few of the music bloggers out there that I like to read, or the online places in general where you could still find excellent commentary about what’s really happening in music instead of what they’re talking about on your late night news channel.
So, with no further adieu, and in no particular order, here are a few that I’m enjoying as of late!
David Beronja’s “The Nashville Feed” is a group blog with with accompanying podcast produced and hosted in Nashville. The site covers topics from music business, events and culture with a Nashville perspective. I like David’s take on a number of things, and the fact that it covers Nashville is also a big bonus for those of you who would like to pick up a job in the Nashville music scene.
Bruce Houghton’s “HypeBot” highlights the current goings on in the new music business a nice interface, some video here and there and and all around good feel with a nice simple reporting style. Bruce is also the President of Skyline Music the home of your favorite lesbian-themed Led Zeppelin rock act; Lez Zeppelin, and one of my favorites: Liquid Soul.
David Hooper is everywhere. Or at least it has seemed that way for me as someone who has been working in the music and internet industry for some time now. He has several sites worth mentioning. . .my two favorites are: Indie Musician, and Music Business Radio.
Bob Lefsetz’ Lefsetz Letter presents the most candid commentary on the music industry available today. And he has been doing it for over 20 years. Always one to pick up on new technologies, Bob’s original paper-written newsletter is now a blog, and his view from 20,000 feet is not only typically right on the mark, but entertaining and insightful as well.
So there you go. Check ‘em out, have fun and see you soon!
