According to the Denver Post, in an article dated SEPTEMBER 14, 2018, “Denver’s music industry is growing faster than its energy, aerospace and biotech industries.” The story was apparently culled from an academic report, “A Quantitative Analysis of Colorado’s Music Industry” (May 2018) authored by Michael Seman, PhD, Director of Creative Industries Research and Policy, University of Colorado Denver College of Arts & Media.
The essence of the article is that “Statewide, the music industry is responsible for more than 16,000 jobs and just over $1.4 billion in revenue. The most robust components in terms of employment and revenue are “Musicians, Managers, and Agents” and “Live Events” pointing to Colorado’s strength in creating music and showcasing it live.”
