Tell us what you do at 7digital
I head up the Content Operations team. We deal with the setup and management of aggregator, distributor & label supply chains, acting as the day-to-day contact for all release distributors. We're also responsible for overall content coverage and gathering requirements for supply chain features and enhancements.
Tell us a little about what you did before you started working at 7digital?
My first step into the music industry was an internship at Ministry of Sound in their compilations team. I worked with some great people there and had a hand in about ten compilations including 80's Groove - there are some absolute jams on that album! Prior to that I studied Music Tech at the University of Swansea during the heights of dubstep and drum & bass where I caught loads of great gigs.
In your opinion, what is the best technology innovation of the past five years?
There are a few things bubbling under the surface that I think are about to hit the mass market. It's going to be interesting to see where the music industry goes with monetising augmented reality and how that fits into marketing strategies; selling experiences as well as content. The development of MQA is another thing we're all excited about on the audio quality front. Outside of the music industry, I'd say contactless payment has had the most impact on day-to-day life in the last five years - it's interesting to see where FinTech companies like Monzo are going with it.
