Questions to Ask When Looking for a Record Label

When searching for a record label for your band, there are several decision to make. You might need to decide between a major or indie label. If you have a specific genre, you may desire to find a label that has similar artists. Before you decide on a label, the following are key questions to ask throughout the process.

  • How do you promote your artists?
    The marketing of your band is essential to your success. An artist may benefit most from a record label that adequately promotes the band. Signing a contract that offers you a larger percentage of royalties is always preferred, but not at the loss of marketing and promotion.

  • What are the terms of the contract?
    Whether you are signing with an indie or major label, it may be a good idea to have an attorney look over the terms. The important things to note are the expectations from the label and how they are able to use your music. Depending on the contract, the label might be able to use your song for a commercial without your permission. This might be a deal-breaker for you or your band.

  • How are the royalties split?
    Signing a record deal is similar to being hired for a job at a new company. Before you take the job, you need to know how much you are going to be compensated. Will the label provide any allowance for expenditures while touring or recording? Make sure to find out what out of pocket expenses you might have moving forward with a new contract.

    There are plenty of people who prefer working for record labels. As you may have guessed, this can be a very lucrative and exciting industry to get involved in. Depending on which record company you are employed with, you may end up dealing with major hip-hop bands, Christian rock groups, and solo indie musicians on a regular basis. Furthermore, it may be up to you to get new talent to sign contracts regarding their music careers. It all just depends on what aspect of the music industry you work in.

    It pays to know and understand a great deal about the music business, record contracts, musical genres, and media marketing before getting involved with a record company. Since this is a highly competitive field, you may want to strive for an education in music or business before trying to get involved with a record label. The more you know about song royalties, major rock artists, contract deals, and professionals that produce music the better. In this type of business, it may also be your job to sell CDs by marketing and advertising wisely. You might have to deal with several genres including Christian rock, indie pop, and country music. It can take a lot of time and effort to promote new talent in this industry.

    There is more to working for a record label than merely listening to demo tapes. While you may have to encourage solo artists and bands to sign major contracts, you may also have to help small music groups promote their CDs through media marketing. This can truly be a lot of work.
