Blockchain, NFTs, and Web 3.0 for Musicians with Noël Jackson

In this is a special bonus episode, I sit down with Noël Jackson to discuss the world of blockchain, NFTs, Web 3.0 and the potential impact these things could have on music and the arts. Noël is an artist, music producer, and mastering engineer, as well as a computer engineer, UX designer, and hacker. We chat through the basics of what blockchain, smart contracts and cryptocurrencies are and then work into the implications they could have on music royalties, ownership, and how transparency leads to the sustainability of the arts.

In this episode we'll dig in on...

  • Decentralization
  • How blockchain can reinvent the record store

About the Podcast

Progressions: Success in the Music Industry
Interviews highlighting successful careers in music and breaking down the steps it took to achieve their goals.
I do not believe the people who have thriving careers and fulfilling lives in music can look back and attribute it all to “luck”. At some point in their career they committed themselves to a goal and took steps to achieve that goal. That's what Progressions is here to highlight. We will set you up for success by bringing you an array of interviews with guests from all parts of the industry. By focusing on identifying significant steps and turning points in their careers we hope to inspire you to set big goals for yourself and by doing so design the music career that you've always dreamed of.
