British music artist Imogen Heap discussed how blockchain technology could help empower musicians at TechCrunch Disrupt London yesterday. Heap told the audience that a revolution among artists was impending and that smart contracts on the blockchain could transform the ways in which people in the industry interact with data.

She says in the video:

“We are at an amazing point in history for artists. For the first time every I believe a revolution is going to happen…. it’ s bubbling already and next year it’s going to take It’s the ability of artists to have the control and the say in what they do with their music at large. And I feel like the answer to this is in the blockchain.”
