In the Music Real E62, our guest moderator is acclaimed Music Artist, Producer, Artist Manager and CEO for Thumbs Up – Buzz Bidstrup. Our very special guest today is Paul Davies who is the Director of Musicians Australia for the MEAA – the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance – the largest and most established union and industry advocate for Australia’s creative professionals. If you are an Arts or Music worker who felt anger at falling between the cracks in the recent $250M Package announced by the Minister for the Arts, Paul Fletcher, then perhaps this is a good episode to dip into. We talk to Paul about the benefits for musicians to join Musicians Australia, the impact of lockdown on the Music Industry and most importantly, the TRUE value of live music.
