Music is always evolving—as are the tools for its production, discovery, and consumption—but now is a particularly exciting time. Streaming has forced one of the biggest industry shifts in decades, and record labels and industry institutions are figuring out creative ways to adapt.

They have come up with some incredibly forward-thinking business models, and they're poised to change the way business is done and how the world finds, makes, and consumes music.
