Cordell Miles, Owner of Music Masters Worldwide independent music store near Chicago, has been immersed in music from day one.

He also familiarized himself with mixing and recording as well as a stint in A&R, but returned to the midwest uncertain about pursuing a future in the industry. Once there, he decided to combine his extensive back catalog and love of all music genres with his business and marketing acumen when opportunity came knocking in the form of an independent, well-loved neighborhood record store. The rest is history.

Cordell shares his unique insights of the industry from Cali and beyond, as well as why the world still needs vinyl, cassette, CD or 8-track in a world of streaming and digital download.
