The Music Industry Handbook provides a clear introduction to how the music industry works, unpacking the complex structures within the industry and mapping it as it exists today. Paul Rutter introduces readers to key industry sectors in an easy-to-digest format, then goes on to explore the essential elements of these sectors and how they work in practice. The Music Industry Handbook opens with a foreword by Feargal Sharkey, and boasts interviews and profiles with major figures in the industry such as Pete Astor, Marius Carboni, Stu Lambert, Simon May and Mike Smith, offering insightful background knowledge into working in the music business. The book has a practical focus, yet it also discusses relevant theoretical perspectives and chronology, and thus avoids being simply an 'expose'. In a fast-evolving market, the author offers advice on keeping up-to-date with future developments, and guides those wishing to enter the industry on the myriad of roles available. The Music Industry Handbook provides valuable business strategies and 'start-up' tools for those that wish to set up independent music ventures, and offers clear explanations of numerous issues including legal trading, ownership and IP music law, copyright, exploitation and protective measures, gatekeeping and hidden music income streams. Throughout the book are suggestions for further reading and valuable source links that guide the reader towards key music industry and media texts, as well as a comprehensive glossary of industry-related terms. The Music Industry Handbook will be invaluable to both new and veteran music-makers, promoters, musicians and managers, and students who want to build confident futures within the music industry.

On February 13, 1914, a group of the nation's most distinguished and popular songwriters gathered together in New York City to support the mission of ASCAP, a new organization for publishers and songwriters. A few years later, ASCAP received its mandate from the Supreme Court to collect royalties for the public performance of copyrighted material. Over the course the next century, ASCAP has been as prominent a force for the advancement and nurture and financial well-being of songwriters as any record label or publishing outfit one would care to name. With a responsive board of directors made up entirely of songwriter/composer and publisher members, ASCAP has defended creators' rights at every turn against those who would seek to devalue music. Today, with copyright under renewed assault, its mission is as resonant and vital as ever, along with its relatively new role as a nurturer of the young artists who represent the future of music. Award-winning music writer Bruce Pollock explores the growth and changes within this complex society and its relationship to emerging technologies, in the context of 100 years of an ever-evolving music business, to see how ASCAP has become, for those who hope to make a living making music, now more than ever, a friend in the music business.

Representing a novel approach to the music industry, this book focuses on it as a process rather than an institution. This process is generated between musicians, artist managers and music companies as they seek to convert original texts created by musicians into successful symbolic goods. The book establishes an historic context for this work in the rise of Music Hall, and traces the links between the informal and tacit knowledge generated by music entrepreneurs in the nineteenth century to present-day brand conscious stars such as Jay-Z and Beyonce. Michael L. Jones discusses the practices of artist managers and the changes in recording contracts which have seen the rise of the '360 degree deal' as one of the key consequences of the impact of digitization on the recording industry.
