Warner Music Group CEO Stephen Cooper commented: “Like any successful start-up, MBW spotted an opening in the market, executed brilliantly, and quickly became indispensable.

“I may not agree with everything you write, but it is always well-informed, often food for thought, and never dull.

“Congratulations on your first 18 months… I have a feeling you’re just getting started.”

And Columbia President Rob Stringer said:”Congrats to MBW on hitting 20k subscribers. Keep up the great insight and perspective on our business.”
