Episode 469 – Ritch Esra And Eric Knight of MUBU TV, Metaverse Needs Horsepower, And Marshall Amps Sold
My guests this week are Ritch Esra and Eric Knight of Music Business Television. MUBU TV takes music business education out of the classroom using interviews with music heavyweights to help artists empower their careers.
Ritch is a former A&R executive at Arista and co-founder of the Music Business Registry, the music industries leading contact directories for personnel in A&R, Music Publishing, Film/Television Music, Music Law and Artist Management.
Erick Knight is a musician, teacher and entrepreneur who’s new venture Symbiotic Nation aims to reinvent the entertainment industry by becoming its version of Google.
During the interview, we spoke about how labels struggle to break their own artists, the depth of knowledge that artists need to be effective today, the music business journey, the latest trends in the music business, the idea behind MUBU TV, and much more.
I spoke with Ritch and Eric via Zoom.
On the intro I’ll take a look at the Metaverse might be further away than we’ve been told, and Marshall Amplification has been sold to a longtime partner.
