EPISODE 5.08: Paul Mahon of The Answer on navigating the music business in modern times

Posted on Dec 8, 2016 in Season 5

“The good music outweighs the bad things in the [music] industry.”

Guitarist Paul Mahon co-founded the highly acclaimed Northern Irish rock band The Answer in the early 2000’s, just when the Internet started disrupting the music industry. We had the great pleasure to talk with Paul about how he perceived the changes that were arising during the start of his career, why he thinks that The Answer was able to sell a good amount of physical copies when other bands struggled to move CDs, and we discuss if video views & music streams can be compared to physical sales. Enjoy this talk and go see The Answer live. It’s definitely worth it!
