No industry has been more disrupted by technology than the music industry, yet music creates emotional connections that last a lifetime, in all economic cycles and technology transitions.
Musonomics founder and NYU Professor Larry Miller advises creators, owners and distributors of music, media and technology and the investors that are active in those sectors. We employ a fact-based, data-driven approach. We deliver measurable results that create value. We make promises and keep them.
We have worked with global companies such as Sony, EMI, ABC, AT&T, Bertelsmann, NBC, NPR, Rodgers & Hammerstein and Zildjian; financial sponsors including Morgan Stanley, Blackstone Group, Terra Firma and Boston Ventures; and with LEK Consulting, Zolfo Cooper and FTI. We provide expert market entry advice to companies seeking to discover untapped markets and new revenue streams. We deliver commercial due diligence services that help financial buyers understand the risks and potential of strategic acquisitions. We help entrepreneurs and developers of media technology “get out of the building” and analyze markets, define their products and bring them to market.
The company was founded as Miller & Co in 2009 by Larry Miller, a former Vice President/Partner of LEK Consulting and a senior member of the firm’s media and entertainment practice where he focused on M&A and business strategy in recorded music and music publishing, broadcasting and digital services. Prior to his return to consulting, Larry was founder and CEO of Or Music, a Grammy Award-winning independent recorded music label and music publisher where he signed and recorded multi-platinum artists Los Lonely Boys and Matisyahu before selling to Sony Music and EMI Music Publishing.
Larry joined the faculty of NYU Steinhardt in 2012 and was appointed Director of the undergraduate and graduate Music Business programs in 2015. He has commented on CBS, ABC, CNBC, CNN, Fox News, Good Morning America and NPR; in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Time, Business Week, Financial Times, Los Angeles Times and Billboard.
