Jay Frank talks about the business and economics behind his company, DigSin, a singles-focused digital record label that gives music away to fans for free. We talk about his start in the music business, working for companies like The Box, Yahoo!, and CMT, and why he feels now is the best time to release music.
With Jay is DigSin artist, Jenn Bostic. She performs her song "Jealous of the Angels" live in our studio.
Topics discussed: viral music videos, speed of implementation, what Jay looks for when signing new acts, why DigSin signs "songs" and not artists, growing a digital fanbase, how to get music in commercials, income streams for musicians, radio promotion, Jenn's success in England and how it happened, building an emotional connection with fans, and the stories behind other DigSin acts, including Like Swimming and Bronze Radio Return.
