My takeaway quote from this article; because our very efficient country struggle with not being able to see a tangible return or immediate conclusion from an action as broad like quotas as part of a larger infrastructure initiative. And Big business and investors need to see a Lorde occur for them to understand the potential and realizing a conclusion we have been feeling in our gut and seeing develop.
Granted, we have a lot of work to do from where we are. But we have the talent, and we have a new generation of artists that are way savvier for this new world who we need to open doors for and get behind.
We do need star artists to put on a pedestal to go with our world class musicians.
