With the major labels focusing on quick returns rather than musician development and the appearance of downloading music Web, the traditional record company/artist relationship has become blurred to the point of being obsolete.
Nowadays, being independent has real perks.
How many times have you heard or read somewhere that the Internet has change d the face of the music industry forever? I would love a dollar for everytime I heard it.
Nonetheless, it’s true and there are a number of reasons for this. Two that spring into mind are that:
1. A traditional record company/artist relationship is optional and not a necessity. You can do your all music sales and performer promotion On-line cutting out all of the ‘middle individuals ‘.
2. websites may turn an artist with a Local/Regional fans into an artist with an international fans. As the Web is not ‘owned’ by any one entity the playing field is a lot more even.
To me, being an independent artist means that you are the one driving the bus and being in control over your own affairs.
A lot of talent ed artists and performing songwriters around the world are at this surprisingly moment waiting for that knock at the door, the opening to ‘get located ‘. What is prefer ly to happen is that they’ll spend their creative lives being surprisingly disappointed.
