Branded: Label Identity and the Music Marketplace

This panel will explore the importance of brand recognition, identity, and loyalty in the current music marketplace. Bringing together representatives from some of the most identifiable and important record labels of the last 50 years, we will discuss how catalog management, A&R strategy, merchandising, and brand marketing can position a label for success in the ever-changing music marketplace. We’ll also at how the reemergence of vinyl has created opportunities for brand-based label exposure and how 'passive' marketing or artist endorsement (such as the Bloodshot Records sticker on Ryan Adams’ guitar) impacts a label’s position. In all, the panel will be a far-reaching, well-rounded discussion of how and why the public image of a record label matters in the current climate.
