How does Music Business works? What is important to know in the music business? Is it better to go indie or to sign with the label these days? Thank you

Angie 16th July 2008 It is in my experience that the indie's may give you more leverage as far as what Your idea's are and not just select "who" you will be as some majors do. It's all about exposure and if Your music is "hot", it will move on it's own. Major labels have their major artists to think of first!

How does one evaluate a good producer and what variables should a singer look for in a producer and weed out fakes and so called wanna be producers? How does one know if a producer is legit or not?

Laurie Walls Thursday 29 Nov 2007 A legitimate producer should have some sort of track record and not just a studio in their basement. "Flash" means nothing!

DEAR SIRS, I WAS A WRITER/KEYBOARDIST FOR A BAND SIGNED WITH A LARGE LABEL A FEW YEARS AGO. I WAS PAID MY WRITERS ROYALTIES IN A TIMELY AND ACCURATE MANNER.IN 2005, THE SAME ALBUM WAS RE-RELEASED BY ANOTHER COMPANY WHO LICENSED THE RIGHTS TO REDISTRIBUTE FROM UNIVERSAL MUSIC. I JUST DISCOVERED THE RE-RELEASE. I HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY WRITERS ROYALTIES FROM EITHER COMPANY. WHO SHOULD I PURSUE FOR MY ROYALTIES: THE FIRST LABEL OR THE COMPANY WHO LICENSED IT FROM THEM. YOUR KNOWLEDGE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. WARMEST REGARDS, TIM SHARPTON

TIM SHARPTON Thursday 22 Nov 2007 You need a knowledgeable atty for sure. Look up Howard Hertz. He is a very good Entertainment Atty. One of the best in the country.

My question is what advice would you give this 46 year old man as far as getting signed to a major label. How much "Age" is the factor in this regard for any one interested in this business. Thank You Sirs .... Steven Patrick

StevenPatrick Sunday 26 Aug 2007 Great Works overpower age. Even if a performer is not where you make it to, You could always be a powerful writer.

how do I send my Demo to a label company?and how do you know wich one is reliable?

Nathalie-joan Limon 2007-03-25 Most labels don't accept unsolicited submissions. It's always best to get an agent or atty to submit them to labels. If You do want to pursue sending them yourself, instead of packing Your package in bubble wrap......use tootsie rolls or something like that. It'll certainly get you to stand out and remembered.

I want to start a home recording studio.Kindly guide as to what is the cheapest or free way to do so.
