While a student, alumni Robby Towns (G ’10) contributed to a major industry report by Will Page, Chief Economist of the Performing Rights Society in London. The two met in London where Mr. Page was a guest lecturer during the Music Business Graduate Program’s winter session. The report, “Economic Insight 20 – Adding up the UK music industry for 2009,” is seminal to the creation of new ways to measure the entire music industry. The report is available here.
The same Robby Towns (@nestamusic) was recognized for his insightful commentary on the music industry in the March 26, 2011 issue of Billboard, in which the magazine featured its first-ever list of those most worth following on Twitter.
