Musicians Are Being Held Hostage By Record Labels in California – The Fair Act

Did you know that there is a law on the books in California that states a company cannot bind someone to a personal services agreement for longer than 7 calendar years - unless they are a RECORDING ARTIST?! That’s right, in 1987 the slimy, slippery, soulless major record labels successfully lobbied the California legislature to add an amendment to exempt recording artists from this law meant to protect people from long-term, predatory contracts. But finally, California might have a chance to right these historic wrongs with the new Bill AB-2926 (Kalra) that has been introduced.

Lucidious The New Music Business with Ari Herstand

100 Million Streams Doesn't Come Without Pain - Lucidious | The New Music Business with Ari Herstand

Listen on your favorite podcast platform: Spotify | Apple Podcasts | Stitcher | Acast

Today’s guest is Lucidious, a hip-hop artist originally from Virginia now living in Los Angeles. I’ve covered him in the book and on the website quite a bit. He has an interesting story from the business perspective. He has over 500,000 monthly listeners on Spotify without any official playlist inclusion, label, or manager. This translates to more than $20,000 per month from streaming revenue.

I brought him onto the show so we could go deeper into his story. We talk about digital marketing and all aspects of his business. We talk about his family. We discuss mental health because a lot of his audience connect with him on deep issues and levels because they’re struggle with their mental health. This is a very enriching and inspiring conversation for me to have, and I think you’ll get a lot of this as well.
