There are many reasons you don’t need a record deal.
We put this list together to help our clients understand why in many ways, you don’t need a record deal these days.
Times have changed and the music industry no longer operates the way it used to. But the old mentality of “I NEED A RECORD DEAL” is still whirling around many artists heads and causing them to look in an area they may not be ready for…yet.
You don’t need a record deal to:
Get yourself & your music professionally produced.
With the advances in technology, it’s now possible to produce a professional, world class recording for a small fraction of what it would cost only 10 years ago. It’s no longer necessary or desirable to have a big record company budget, which has to be paid back to the record company from the artists tiny share anyway. (5-10% typically)
This stopped being done by the major record labels many years ago. They expect artists to come to them already developed, with a sound, an image, songs, fans, etc. The artist development must now be done by a qualified team at the music production company, like SkyeLab.
For an artist, it’s no longer necessary to have the record label manufacture hundreds of thousands of records to service all the record stores across the country (and the world). This enormous expense was again, charged to the artist, whether the record sold or not. You don’t need it anymore.
To get your music out there for the world to listen to and buy, you know longer need the major distributors. Online distribution via the internet has completely revolutionized the music industry. Speak to us about the various options available now to all our SkyeLab Artists.
