Back when many of you older musicians were growing up the term digital download was not even thought of. If someone was going to hire musicians and to have your music it had to be either played on the radio or purchased in a physical form such as a record, an eight track tape or a cassette tape. And so today the business has various formats of digital media, which allow copies of your music to be emailed across the globe in mere seconds. To any this is great to some, not so much. The biggest downside of this is that without a copy protection algorithm your tune or tunes can be bootlegged and offered for free between millions of people so there is a likely for lots of royalty loss that could not have occurred say back in the seventies.
The upside is that you can reach many more likely fans and hire musicians this way and there is the likely that you can make a lot more sales across the world in service marketplace than you would have done by yourself way back when.Ok, so where does that leave the musical community as a whole today? That truly depends on whom you ask. Many, if not most songwriters hate it because they loss out on a lot of money for something that they toiled long and hard over creating. A lot of new bands love it and hire musicians because even though people are really stealing the music for free on the Internet, it increases the count of folks that attend the shows at the clubs so they make more money that way.
One thing is for sure, no matter which person you ask or which answer you get, the industry is very well divided about this issue and there is not really a right or a wrong answer. With progress there come changes and sacrifices that have to be made and in this day and age of the modern business of music, the loss of royalties is a fact of life and is here to stay for the foreseeable future of the industry. The best thing that you can do is network with other music professional at places like myMusicCircle and you can hire musicians. This will allow you to try and stay ahead of the curve as much as possible and hopefully do the damage control first and then just be prepared to roll with the flow as things change. And believe me, they will continue to change.

Have you and your band decided it is time to make a recording? It’s an exciting time for you and you need to ensure that the Recording studio you choose is easily accessible, offers the best equipment and has equipment hire and repair should you’ve forgotten anything or an important piece of equipment breaks.

Finding the right space is easier than you may think. You need a space within simple reach of all major motorways and London is the obvious solution. In London you’re central and there’s a awesome public transport network if some of the band members or backup singers don’t drive.

Obviously you don’t need to be within the congestion zone, so finding something that is within simple access of public transport, major motorways and outside the congestion zone is key to the luck of your days recording. This way you won’t have people not arriving due to transportation or accessibility problems.

There are studios available on the ground floor level for simple access that have a control room for recording and monitoring. There is even an experienced engineer on hand to help you when you need it to ensure your recording goes as smoothly and seamlessly as possible.

The studio is close to restaurants and shops, so you can take a well-deserved lunch break between sets or take a leisurely walk to the shop to relax and breathe in some fresh air.

You may wonder why hire a recording studio when you can build one at home, but by the time you’ve insulated the room, bought all the equipment and started recording it will cost you a lot more than hiring a space that has everything available for you.

To succeed as an artists or musician in the music industry.

For any artist, songwriter, musician, and or performer. Even if you don’t have a strong desire to start and or manage your own Independent label, if you are even remotely serious about experiencing any level of success in the music industry, you absolutely MUST gain as much knowledge as you can get your hands on so that you understand the industry in which you have a desire to succeed.

You must research, study, and try your best to understand basic music contracts, indie labels, major labels, publishers, who does what, where, and when. If you think your just going to put together a few songs, mail them out to a few people on a list, and or get noticed playing in some club one night, then GOOD LUCK!

Artists, musicians, and performers absolutely MUST be proactive in advancing their careers. Your attitude MUST be that you will manage, publish, and promote yourself until a better manager, publisher, and or promoter comes along that has more resources than you, at which time you may decide to partner with to expand on what you have already accomplished yourself.

This approach is what separates the men from the boys, or the successful V.S. the Non-Successful.

As an artist, musician, or performer, you have got to begin today learning as much as possible about every aspect of the industry, and this is best accomplished by a logical approach, and having a resource with which you can turn to for advice as you continue your journey and develop yourself into a professional artist.

You will gain much more ground when you are approaching Major Music Labels, Music Publishers, and or Independent Music Labels if you approach them with an attitude of wanting to join their team, as more of a partnership. If your approach is I think my music is good, I want you to give me a contract to sign, and a bunch of money and fame, then again GOOD LUCK!

You will get the attention of music industry players much faster, and with much more respect if your approach is backed up with proof that you have been working hard to establish, develop, and promote yourself, and that you are not looking for someone to dump a ton of cash into you, but rather you are looking for someone that has some resources that you dont have, and that you believe in your music and talent enough to believe that if they can join in and add additional resources to take your product to the next level, that you believe that you and them will both benefit greatly from the partnership.

Heres an example, lets say that you have written and completed a demo of two or three songs, and you have maybe seven or eight songs written but have not yet recorded.

Which do you think would look better when you approach a small but fairly successful Indie Label. Lets look at the first, not so favorable approach.

You mail them a demo CD with your phone number, or you go to their office and drop off a CD with your cell phone number written on the front of it. This approach more or less screams I AM LAZY, AND I WANT YOU TO HANDLE EVERYTHING AND MAKE ME FAME AND FORTUNE

Now lets take a look at a more favorable approach, one which will most likely yield success, or at least open the door for more discussion and or dialog. Lets say you set up a meeting with the head of a small indie label, and sit down with them and tell them that you have a demo CD with three songs, and seven other songs that have been written, but not yet recorded. Then you inform them that you have already gotten a copyright on the recorded material, as well as a copyright on just the lyrics of the other songs.

You then proceed to tell them that you are currently promoting the three songs that are recorded on various promotional web sites, and that the three completed songs are available for purchase as singles on Amazon.con, Rhapsody, Emusic, and Napster, and that last month there were a total gross sales of $32.00 You then continue to explain your current promotional strategy, and that you are looking for a independent label, or team that believes in your music, and can take where your currently at, add some additional resources, and boost the product up a few more levels.

You then proceed to explain to them that you plan to continue self promotion, and working to get sales up on a daily basis, and that you truly believe that with your work ethics, passion, and drive, and their additional resources that as a team all of you can turn this into a profitable venture.

Now you tell me, which approach do you think would open, and keep the doors open for you?

Even if the small independent label that you are meeting with couldnt bring you in at that time, they most likely would be so impressed with your professionalism, and your approach, that they would most likely be more than willing to refer you to anyone and everyone they know in the business to try to help you.

Again, if you are serious about succeeding in the music business, you absolutely MUST take a proactive approach towards developing yourself as a true professional artist, performer, and or musician.
