Posted on April 20, 2017

Friday, April 21 marks one-year after the passing of Prince. A Concordia expert can comment on the indelible mark that Prince left on the music industry.

Joshua Rager, assistant professor in the Department of Music, says: "On the anniversary of the death of Prince I'm reminded of just how much a visionary he was in the way he maintained control over his recorded musical output. As we transition from a "recording" industry to a "streaming" industry, musicians are once again struggling to receive fair compensation for their recorded music.  Prince took a visionary stance against unfair practices in the recording industry."
