There was a time when you said you were independent and people assumed you were emo or a Nirvana knockoff. But I was shootin’ the breeze with a buddy today and he was telling me bands WITH record deals are doing GoFundMe pages. Label deals aren’t what they used to be. And that’s why we believe that being independent is the smart play for anyone who wants to be in music or film or any creative field of endeavor. Blaze your own trail. Wouldn’t you rather make 100K that’s pure profit than 1M that 50% off the top goes to the label?? And they keep subtracting from there. Do the math. F that.
