From Nirvana To Beat Connection: How Music Has Changed

It’s almost impossible to imagine how much the music industry has changed in the past 20 years. I remember living in France with my family and some family friends. One of the members of our “commune” took a trip home and brought back a few CDs. One of them was Nirvana’s album “Nevermind”. The year was 1991 and the internet as it is now, did not exist.

Sharing music with your friends was really difficult. I’m sure some people can remember having a cassette in the stereo waiting for the radio to play the song they loved so they could hit record. We were the original pirates of music, making 90 minute tapes of our favorite bands and songs to share with our friends. Now we can pull up any tune that we desire, post a link on a friends wall, tweet what we’re listening to, or create a playlist for our friends to check out at their convenience.

Porter NovelliOn Friday, July 25th, right before the doors opened to the iconic Capitol Hill Block Party (CHBP), Porter Novelli hosted a discussion group with 5 speakers who were experts in individual areas of the music industry, headed by Matt Ashworth as the moderator. Included on the panel were Reed Juenger of Beat Connection, lead talent-buyer for CHBP Eli Anderson, writer and former music manager Chris Etsey, Sr. Director of programming for Slacker Radio Kevin Stapleford, and the VP of Global Brand Development for Playstation John Crooke.
