If you’re in the know, you know who David Macias is. If you don’t, allow me to introduce to you one of the most brilliant minds in the music industry today. David has been causing disruptions through his life. He has won quiz bowl tournaments for his alma mater that has been historically a black university, he worked his way up to the top to eventually work directly under Clive Davis, he has a Grammy as a producer, he graduated from Leadership Music, and he and Deb Markland developed a business that is bucking trends in the music industry. That business…Thirty Tigers. Thirty Tigers is a full service record label that has worked with clients Carlos Santana, Jason Isbell, Lucinda Williams, Patty Griffin, Trampled by Turtles, The Avett Brothers, Low, Ryan Bingham, Flogging Molly, The Josh Abbott Band, Chase Rice, Casey Donahew, The Eli Young Band, Will Hoge, Aaron Watson, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, and many others. I met David in an apartment inside the label and we had a chat about streaming services, his thoughts on the present day music industry, and what is Thirty Tigers up to. You even get a sneak peek inside the deal you would get if you were a Thirty Tigers artist. We try to project what will happen in the near future of streaming services and the industry as a whole.
