  • The Boston music scene: Making it musically in Boston

    CBS Boston - 10/22/2014

    While many veterans of the music industry are pessimistic, Northeastern University music business guru Dave Herlihy feels the shift is not necessarily a bad thing.

    “People complain about the passing of the scene of the old industry, but the social aspect of music is ascending. I think that kind of one-to-one social connection is infuriating the old guard because they can’t control it.” Herlihy said.

    “But the passion that people have in Boston for music is going to fuel a whole new micro-system of a scene that will sustain artists and fans who will find out about each other because they have a love for the music that can’t be co-opted by a large media system.”
