    "This isn't just another #MeToo issue... it's way bigger than that." Sexual violence, NDAs, and the music industry – with Caroline Heldman, PhD and Samantha Maloney of the Sound Off Coalition

    "This isn't just another #MeToo issue... it's way bigger than that." Sexual violence, NDAs, and the music industry – with Caroline Heldman, PhD and Samantha Maloney of the Sound Off Coalition

    Content warning: this episode discusses sexual abuse.

    Ep. 154: Caroline Heldman Ph.D and Samantha Maloney are co-founders of the Sound Off Coalition, which recently published a report that called out “the scathing history and financial impact of decades of sexual abuse and coverups in the music industry”. In the report, publicly-available information on reported allegations of sexual abuse, harassment and related misconduct involving musicians and music industry executives is catalogued in detail. Amongst its key demands is a call for an end to the use of non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) that silence survivors.

    While its mostly comprised of allegations - and the report notes that "all individuals should be considered innocent until proven guilty” – it’s still a sobering document: over 200 pages detailing allegations against some of the most well-known names in the music business.

    We spoke to Caroline and Samantha about their work, the impact of the report, what they describe as a pattern of “covering up” by big music companies, the way they are using shareholder and political activism to try to make a difference –  and the scale of the challenge.

    "The music festival industry is suffering and there is something fundamentally wrong at its heart" – so what can be done to revive it?

    "The music festival industry is suffering and there is something fundamentally wrong at its heart" – so what can be done to revive it?

    Episode 153: What's the health of the music festival ecosystem like? Not great, says Nick Morgan, CEO of UK festival company The Fair. Nick, who is also vice chair of the UK’s Association of Independent Festivals (AIF), and his colleague Yasmin Galletti join Music Ally's editor Joe Sparrow and discuss the pressures festivals are under, in an environment where, they say, having seen one in six festivals go bust in the pandemic, another 1 in 6 will go bust in 2024 too.  the place that music festivals hold in the UK society – and in other countries – has changed dramatically in the last 20 years; and whether the many festivals are still viable during an economic crunch. We also chat about what the are AIF is campaigning for, and the changing customer demographic and how festivals need to cater for their needs differently.

    "We're not just creating musicians; we're shaping well-rounded individuals" – Young Voices CEO Ben Lewis and violinist Anna Phoebe on the impact of choir singing on children

    "We're not just creating musicians; we're shaping well-rounded individuals" – Young Voices CEO Ben Lewis and violinist Anna Phoebe on the impact of choir singing on children

    Episode 152: Young Voices arranges huge, arena-sized, choir performances for school children, and we were joined by Ben Lewis, CEO of Young Voices, and Anna Phoebe, violinist who performs with Young Voices (and is on the Board at The Ivors Academy.)

    We spoke about the importance of music at the grassroots level, and encouraging children to sing and perform together. They talked about the unifying effect of the huge Young Voices shows, the state of music education and the need for it in the talent pipeline, and what singing and taking part in music does for children's development – and for the economy.

    "The music industry's approach to mental health was disastrous”

    "The music industry's approach to mental health was disastrous”

    Episode 151: We're joined by music industry psychologist and therapist Anne Löhr to get a snapshot of the state of mental health within the music industry, and her interpretation of how well the industry has supported the mental health of the people in it. SPOILER: uh-oh, it’s not been great – but it’s getting better.

    The music industry has, according to Anne, stuck to one approach when dealing with mental health: and the results have been disastrous. So we talked about the damage that has been done and whether now, in 2024, things are changing – and are they changing fast enough?

    We also ask Anne if the big players, like major labels, have a duty of care to look after the mental health of the people it is making money from.

    How to make disabled people’s access to live events environmentally sustainable – with Suzanne Bull, founder of Attitude is Everything & Dr Teresa Moore, Director at A Greener Future

    How to make disabled people’s access to live events environmentally sustainable – with Suzanne Bull, founder of Attitude is Everything & Dr Teresa Moore, Director at A Greener Future

    Episode 150(!): Suzanne Bull, founder of Attitude is Everything – which connects disabled people with music and live event industries to improve access – and Dr Teresa Moore, Director at A Greener Future – which helps organisations, events, festivals and venues be more environmentally sustainable – join Music Ally's editor Joe Sparrow.

    They spoke about how the twin issues of sustainability at music festivals and access for people with disabilities connect, and why they’re opening up a conversation about how the sustainability challenge can incorporate the needs of people with disabilities.

    Despite the live music industry taking steps to improve the individual issues, sustainability and accessibility have generally been two siloed activities. Suzanne and Teresa are aiming to change that.

    They spoke about the toolkit their two organisations have put together, which is designed to help festival organisers make their sustainability ambitions work in step with their accessibility goals, and we also chatted about the challenges that disabled people face in the face of climate-change-related actions.

    And if you’re are interested in making a difference, we chatted about what you can do (besides downloading the toolkit!) to make simple but effective progress to sustainable accessibility.

    Local, independent artists want to play gigs – but it's increasingly hard to make money or find a venue. Sofar Sounds CEO Jim Lucchese, talks about the economics of live music – and what should change

    Local, independent artists want to play gigs – but it's increasingly hard to make money or find a venue. Sofar Sounds CEO Jim Lucchese, talks about the economics of live music – and what should change

    Ep 149: Sofar Sounds CEO Jim Lucchese joins Music Ally editor Joe Sparrow to talk about the current economics of live music and its impact on local, independent artists. Live music is a hard business at the best of times, but for smaller and emerging artists, it can be brutally tough. A good number of artists now get their start playing Sofar Sounds shows, so we ask Jim to explain what artists and people working in the local live industry are experiencing, and what are the main economic and infrastructure pressures on them at the moment.

    Joe also asks Jim what the solutions might be – at a local grassroots level, but also the responsibilty of bigger players in the live space.
