In Free the Music Business: Tips and Tales from an Indie Music Nerd (audiobook), author Adam Cruz takes you on a fast-paced journey through the complicated world of streaming music. In his distinctive narrative style, he details the effects that manual interplay has had on royalties and chronicles the diminishing value of music, the rise of streaming services and the changing attitudes of music lovers. Cruz also shares tips and tales from his days of running a widely popular NYC disco label at the turn of the millennium. Free the Music Business . . . is the culmination of his experience working and recording with some of house music's biggest talents as well as research collected for the Freedom Radio Hour, a music business radio show he produces and co-hosts with longtime collaborator, Eddie Nicholas.
