Hi Mark,

Nice post. It's interesting to see the control slowly shifting from a company down model to a consumer up model. I think the social web has created an environment where more control has shifted from the studios to the artists and to consumers.

Another artist of note is Jill Sobule here in Los Angeles, she raised money from her fans, to the tune of over $80,000 to produce her next album. http://jillsnextrecord.com/

I still think there's a place for the studios in all of this, they do after all still have a great infrastructure and dollars behind them. It may just require a bit of a shift in terms of business model and what sort of role they play.
