In conversation with Magnus Rydén VP Music at Soundtrack Your Brand.
My guest today is my dear friend and ex-colleague Magnus Rydèn. We met for the first time in November 2014 when he was looking for students to validate his Music Brand Scan methodology. We are both graduates of the Stockholm School of Economics. And we were both hired at Soundtrack Your Brand at the same time in August 2015. Magnus as Head of Music and I as Head of Research.
Before that Magnus’s started the Indie label Heya Hifi in 2005 with Alf Tumble, his music partner in crime, another of my amazing ex-colleague from Soundtrack. Magnus is himself a music producer, a songwriter, and a DJ.
