The music industry is in a constant state of evolution as artists, management, and consumers respond to an ever-changing society. The Adams State University Faculty and Staff Lectures Series will host, Music Streaming and the Recording Artist: How is Music Consumed and Where Does the Money Go?, a round-table discussion by music professors and guests at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 28, in McDaniel Hall room 101.

The round-table will include Dr. James Doyle, assistant professor of music and moderator; Dr. Matthew Schildt, professor of music and independent recording artist; Don Richmond, recording artist, record label owner, producer, engineer, with an Adams State Honorary Doctorate in Music; Dr. Teri McCartney, emeritus professor of counselor education and Howlin’ Dog Records manager; and Maria McMath, Caminos grant activity director, and cultural anthropologist.

With the proliferation of streaming services, the availability of independent recording studios, and the disappearance of artist development support, artists are seeking to pave new revenue streams. This lecture will investigate the recording industry, the return on investment from streaming services, and the cultural and psychological impact of the industry on society.

All ASU Faculty and Staff Lectures in the series are free and open to the public. Complimentary light refreshments will be offered. For further information on the series of lectures, contact Dr. Courtney Allen, assistant professor of counselor education, at 719-587-7888 or
