We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Labels! (Embrace The Digital Age)

October 8, 2013

world-music-icon-1419194-mDon’t believe the hype. History and Hollywood have told us that being a musician is all about “waiting to be discovered.” Waiting for some magical industry wiz to grant us one wish, give us a record deal, or give us an awesome spot on a major tour.

That’s a load of crap now.

Don’t get me wrong, it still happens, but “waiting” is horrible business model. This is the digital age: the age of the independent musician. You don’t need labels to get heard. You have the internet. You have Youtube. You can get yourself on iTunes with TuneCore or DiscMakers for cheap.

There is no middle-man holding you back. You can get into homes today easier than you’ve ever been able to. So get out there and make fans!

No, it’s not a “if you build it they will come” philosophy. You still must promote and market. Yes, that will cost some money here and there, but the good thing is, YOU can do it today. YOU can have control over it. YOU can do it all yourself without having to wait on business men in suits.

While this blog may give music promotion tips among many other things, there are tons blogs out there that specialize in it. You owe to yourself to read up and get more fans.  Take a look for yourself.

So go for it, man! You have the power now more than ever. Get to it.
