The new issue of Music Week is out now, and gracing our cover is Coda Agency’s Alex Hardee – aka the man behind the speech that everyone was talking about at this year’s Music Week Awards. Suffice to say, Liam Gallagher and Rag'N'Bone Man's agent gives us his view on the state of the live music business in inimitable fashion…
Elsewhere, we catch up with Ultra Music’s Patrick Moxey, Empire Artist Management’s Neale Easterby and DJ Premier to find out all about the rebirth of classic NY hip-hop label, Payday Records. Meanwhile, we also deliver a very special report on royalties collections featuring some of the biggest players in the sector.
Also in the issue: JAE5 gives us the lowdown on the creation of J Hus’ anthem Can You See in the latest edition of Hitmakers and Slipknot/Stone Sour’s frontman Corey Taylor reflects on a lifetime spent scaring the biz in Aftershow.
Rising Croydon MC Hardy Caprio is On The Radar, while Sweden’s latest punk export Viagra Boys feature in Making Waves. This week’s Sync Story digs into what happened when new film The Festival hooked up with a host of artists including Charli XCX and Portugal The Man.
Alongside all that, there’s all the very latest news, charts, analysis and market share figures.
