Fred James, musician, songwriter, producer, and record executive joins us for Music Business Radio this week. His record company, Bluesland, was started in the mid 1980s as a music publishing concern and had immediate success with covers by Johnny Winter, Koko Taylor, and countless others. His songwriting credits include Shemekia Copeland, The Amazing Rhythm Aces, Junior Wells with Bonnie Raitt, and Koko Taylor.
We will talk about the rich heritage of R&B labels in Nashville as well as how one great song can have a career of 50 years or more. Checkout more on Fred and Bluesland at: blueslandproductions.com.
