Mod: Linda Melsom / Indie Recordings (NO)

Linda elbowed her way into the music business in her teens and was quickly taken under the wings of capable and independent women like Runa Strindin and Hilde Hammer (RIP). This lead to various jobs in festival and events before she landed her job in Indie Recordings in 2014 where she has been ever since.

Working in Indie Recordings as AR and project manager she has worked with a broad aspect of bands like Kampfar, Nekromantheon, Carpathian Forest, Djerv, and now the Norwegian Eurovision contribution for 2024 Gåte.

During her time in Indie she has seen the shift from physical to digital, and worked extensively with adaption to the digital shift, marketing and branding of bands and music catalog.

In Indie Recordings she has worked with a wide aspect of revenue sources including sync, where e.g. her band The Cruel Intentions landed a major sync deal with HBO for their Peacemaker series which was released in 2022.

The last ten years has seen big shifts in the revenue streams in music, with ten years in Indie Recordings she has been part of the journey of how to swiftly adapt to these changes and explore how to best accommodate to an ever faster changing market.
