In this episode of the Startup Junkies Podcast, Jeff Amerine, Jon Cadieux, and Chandler Abbott sit down with Troy Campbell, the founder of The House of Songs. The House of Songs has become a global songwriting enterprise with Troy’s philosophy that an artist’s biggest audience may be in a foreign country. Troy founded the Ozark House of Songs after seeing the same infrastructure like bike trails, startup companies, and corporate partners growing in Northwest Arkansas as he saw in Austin, Texas in the 1990s. According to Troy, the old music industry is gone and will never be back, but the new model of finding your true audience is refreshing because there will always be a demand for great songs.
