- Basically the music business today is where it was in 1967.

- Artists need to make sure they are easily findable on search engines.

- Primary focus of new artists needs to be finding a core fan base.

- 81% of all albums sold last year sold under 100 copies. But... there were 5 tracks sold for every album.

- Even though it's now a singles market, many labels are still album-centric.

- Odds of winning the lottery are as good as a record deal and a hit. Actually the lottery has better odds...

- Artists, you may not want to hear it, but you have to look at yourselves as businesses.
