If you have not been here before a good place to start is our ongoing series,TMD 101, which can be found on the TMD TOC page, which organizes the articles by the order posted or subject.
The objective of The Musical Disconnect is to inform music fans, and musicians, what is happening in the music industry today, the profound changes that are occurring, and how a fan's actions can help, or hurt, the artists whose work they enjoy.
Some of this will be anecdotal, some of it will be emotionally based (I am a musician after all), and some of it will be based on evidence and current resources. Maybe all three at the same time...
TMD will also explore the disconnect between the music fan's perception of what it means to be a working musician and the reality. To look behind the façade at what it really takes to be a independent musician in today's new digital music age.
