Today's music business is always evolving. One plan that works today may be completely irrelevant tomorrow. Everybody is trying to formulate that new idea that will revolutionize the industry moving forward.  One artist actively making moves is Chris Lake

The DJ and Producer has recently announced a partnership with artist friendly and music discovery platform, WAV, to find new ways to get content to fans. To be specific, the partnership is with Lake's record label, Black Book Records. The partnership is expected to have a heavy emphasis on "cinematic content and various live streaming opportunities" to help bring consumers closer to their content.  

In a press release announcing the partnership, Lake explains his admiration for the platform and how eager he is to work with them.

“Working with WAV was attractive to me right away because they are a young company with a strong vision to empower creators to keep creating," said Lake. "WAV is enabling me to publish original content according to my vision and maximize every piece of art I create by connecting it directly to the right audience. I look forward to everything that is to come and more as part of this partnership.”
