The New Business Model

We’ve been referencing the U.K.’s Sanctuary Group as the model of a strong music business keiratsu — management, booking and label under one roof. In the old school of business, you’d never want to trust one company with all three of these tasks. But Sanctuary’s obessive focus on building deep relationships is changing all the rules — and making more money for artists who’ve been ditched by the Bigs. [ via Fast Company | Thanks, Heath! ]
