There are no good labels or bad labels. There are only good label deals and bad label deals.

Hi Adam,

These days you don’t have to use a label to release your music and be successful. You can just sign up with a distributor such as CD Baby or Distrokid who will send your music to the online stores. You would have to do your own promotion and administration, but you would have complete freedom about what music you produce and when.

2nd this man. With so much information on the web about how you can market your music & how to release stuff, you don't need a label anymore.

If you're willing to learn music marketing properly, then I'd cut the label out. I've only had bad experiences with labels & they take a lot of your revenue (which is already peanuts)!

I'm not saying you'll have the same experience, but I think it's worth looking at self-releasing rather than signing away all your rights to music you spent ages working on.
