Lisa Alter was recently interviewed for Axios’s ‘1 Big Meal’ series about the current state of music investments and the changes that have been seen with the rise of AI, artist re-recordings, and more firms entering the space.
Lisa and the Axios reporter discussed the recent uptick in music catalog sales in recent years. Lisa speculated, “I think it's the investment community, the money, waking up to the fact that music is one of [America's] strongest national assets.” As she has seen this trend increase, she notes, “I think what's going to start happening is some amalgamation of content owners. A lot of funds have sprung up. A lot of these smaller funds are in it for the short term. I think you're going to see consolidation in the market.”
