We caught up with Deborah Fairchild at MusicBiz in Nashille in May 2018. We talked about music tech as both a relationship and trust business, with VEVA Sound's role as an archive and validation company standing right in the middle of the boost in streaming and all that implies as to remixes, stems, and volumes of digital content, both old and new. We talked on how metadata needs a sexier name, which also was a theme of a MusicBiz panel conversation. She shared about the proximity effect of working in Nashville while expanding their company in Sydney and Toronto to match the growing needs in those cities. Deborah, both as an engineer and company executive, shared her joy at being in the middle of trusted relationships in a changing business.
