Allan McGowan who was conference speaker at the 2019 edition of Westway LAB, has a handful of stories about music business where he himself acts as a character. He started working on record stores and then joined Chrysalis Agency.
From an aspiring artist (he was into drawing art) to a wide circuit agent, McGowan was among the first agents that booked tours in different countries in Europe. He was at MIDEM when the music business really started its grand transformations.
