The Lost Art of Artist Development

In the early days of the music industry, artist development was one of the most important activities of a record label, often times allowing an artist to develop their artistry and image behind the scenes for years before finally emerging in the public’s eye. However, the emergence of the internet has almost ended this practice. Instead, artists are now pushed to develop publicly and share everything they do in order to feed the social media beasts. In this episode, Blueprint sits down with friend of the podcast Swamburger of Solillaquists of Sound to speak about his history and present involvement in artist development and why it’s still one of the most important aspects in any industry.
