Today we met up with Mark at Cafe de Monde to speak about the music industry in New Orleans. We discussed about issues he has faced as well as the local artists. One main issue that he has faced has been the decreasing sale of vinyl and cd’s. He had mentioned that online streaming has been decreasing the sale of these items. He typically would have brought the group a Cd but cd’s are slowly becoming a rare item to the population.

Mark had been running a record label for twenty-one years and currently has fifteen artists signed. Mark is a native New Orleanian and is happy to be back in his hometown.
