QnA: Do I Need A Record Label To Make It Big In The Music Industry?



What’s up guys? It’s been long I posted on the site a lot has been going on but anyway let’s get right to the question

Q: Do I really need a label to make it big in the music industry?

A: Without thinking or wasting time the answer is NO, you don’t need a record label to make it big in the industry and I’ll give reasons for my answer as usual

So what’s the role of a record label? The short story is they promote and push artistes to the best of their ability and that’s something you can also do by yourself but it’ll “COST A LOT OF MONEY”

I often tell people the road to fame/success in the music industry is an expensive one but the result is always worth it. Most upcoming artistes can’t afford to promote their music so they end up thinking a record deal is the only way out and ‘park their goal to looking for a record deal’ instead of looking for ways to promote their art



It’s more profitable to make it as an independent artiste than a signed artiste
-You’re not bound by any contract, freedom to do whatever you want
- You’re really not splitting the profit from royalties, shows, features etc. (Except you hire managers, PR etc.)


But it’s a lot of work! I know

Promotion - Radio, TV, Banners, Online Ads etc.
Connection -You need to go out a lot, meet people, connect with the public, build business relationship etc.
But that’s another topic

So the answer to the question is NO, You don't need a record label to make it big but it helps if you can't afford to promote your art 

On another note if you do get a record deal please please please and please READ THE CONTRACT WELL better still take a lawyer with you! All that glitters isn’t gold! READ BEFORE YOU SIGN

What do you think about my answer? Do you have something to add or correct?
