How Artists Can Get Advances Without Signing To a Label

Today my guest is John Funge. He's the CEO and co-founder of The Music Fund, a startup company that issues advances to artists for their streaming revenue. They're not a record label even though labels are typically the ones offering advances to artists. They are innovating and disrupting in the music industry, and John goes over their business model. 


As I dug deeper and interviewed artists who're using them, it seemed like a very cool company. Now they're partnered with Ari's Take.
