How do you juggle living on a working farm with childcare and lockdown life with running an indie label and making music? Johnny Lynch has a way that works for him. From Eigg, Johnny runs Lost Map Records, makes music as The Pictish Trail and cultivates a creative community around his music and the successful label. He spoke to Dougal Perman about how he operates from the island, how his label creates value for its community of fans and how that translates into revenue and his thoughts on how music streaming services can move towards a more equitable model for the benefit of the artists.
