Historical Changes in the
Music Industry Supply Chain:
A Perception of the
Positioning of the Artist Musician
Providence College, Eastern Connecticut State University; Peter
Spang Goodrich, Providence College; Philip
Vos. Fellman, American Military University
The present study will explore the historical changes of the music
industry supply chain. It will consider propositions such as the
vertical integration of the historical music industry, the revolution
in technology, and the positioning of the artist within the music
industry supply chain. Several questions will be tackled: What is the
positioning of the artist in the new digital era? And given the changes
of position of the major labels and the positioning of the artist, what
are the descriptive and prescriptive possibilities should the majors
disappear and be replaced by alternative elements in the music industry
supply chain? Social Network Analysis (SNA) will be utilized as a
methodological tool in the creation of non-linear and adaptive models.

Recording Contract and How it Shaped the Future of the Group and its
Bordowitz Media Werx
Bergen Community College
By 1969, the record business had been around in some way, shape, or
form for nearly eighty years. For an octogenarian, it had never been
healthier. A study commissioned by John Wiley of Columbia Records said
that the business had grown 250 percent in the decade between 1955 and
1965. It predicted the record business would double in size again
within the next decade. “The end of the upward trend is not yet in
sight,” added Wiley. “Our future has never held more promise” (Rood

University of Colorado
On May 2, 2012, it was reported that pop music stars the Jonas
Brothers, a family trio who gained immense exposure on the Disney
Channel, were leaving their record label, Hollywood Records. Artists
choose to leave record labels for many reasons, and sometimes they’re
involuntarily dropped from their contracts by the company. The
situation can be spun in many ways to the press—or hardly mentioned.

Twenty-First Century: A Case Study on the Career of Jay-Z
Student Paper, Indiana
A music mentor of mine once told me “overnight success” takes about
seven years to transpire. While he may have been misguided a decade
ago, to achieve artistic stardom today means breaking the norms and the
boundaries of the past. The make-up of a contemporary music career has
undergone fundamental changes over the past fifteen years. These
changes are linked to the tremendous technological advancements that
have shaped the music industry in recent decades.

was a sample of a common, three-note guitar riff from the introduction
to the George Clinton funk song Get Off Your Ass and Jam.
