Why You Need a Record Company
There are many people who think that independent is the way to go these days, and there are plenty of successful musicians that went that route who can back up that claim. The problem is that if you don’t really know what you’re doing, going the independent route is really not a good idea. You need someone behind you that knows the ins and outs of the record business and can get you to the places you need to be in the world. There are so many things that go into creating a successful band or group that it is basically impossible for the band to do it all on their own. A group needs to be brought into the music business by a veteran who knows their way around the block if the group wants to have any chance of succeeding in an extremely competitive business. Sometimes it takes a few years for a singer to realize it, but there is really no getting around the record companies. Any singer or group that signs with a record company is much more likely to succeed because of the experience of a record label, so not signing with one puts a musical act at a huge disadvantage. If you want your band to take the next step and become something real instead of the laughing stock of your local town, you should give a call to a record company and see if you can get an audition. You never really know what the possibilities are until you get some music business people behind you, so you should go all out and try to make it as soon as possible.
