Michael Cassidy – Founder, I Think Music
Michael Cassidy is the founder of I Think Music, a professional tool (a platform) used by independent retail brands, labels and artists to build their own independent music stores for a industry beating 5% share of RRT. Already hundreds of record labels and artists use the platform. As well as enabling indies to list their own catalogue, the platform enables labels to stock releases from other labels. In practice this has created a network of independent store brands all cross-selling each others content. ithinkmusic.com replicates the physical distribution mechanism for independent labels in the digital realm, at low cost, enabling users to create profitable specialist download stores championing the music they love.
Michael has been working with music and multimedia since leaving university in 1991. He has worked as a music promoter in Birmingham, Cophehagen and Barcelona. Michael was a Senior Lecturer at the University of Central England, and head of new media on the BA Visual Communications degree course. He still runs a small independent record label, Softly Records.
