Can Linda Perry Save Music (Daily Beast)

This article about Linda Perry’s sense of the voice in the music business is equal parts stuck in a Hollywood bubble and rebellious maven. The rubble of the old star making music business remains warm, but Ms. Perry seems buffered away from literally hundreds of singers, tens of terrific ones, and, maybe more than a few who are already trying to figure out how to obtain a livelihood under the difficult circumstances the post-music business has in instantiated.

The lightning-in-a-bottle appeal of the televised artists and repertoire contests casts a large, albeit absurd, shadow. The reality is that the music business is completely fragmented and the result is you have to be an explorer and willing to venture beyond the silly music centers of the moment.
