The Independent Music Business

#SevAdvice.... In All actuality anyone who writes produces and records songs is in the Music Business.... However the Industry is a different thing! The industry is controlled by 4 major labels EMI, Universal Music Group, Sony BMG & Warner Music group! They have controlled the market share for years based on their ability to distribute physical albums! 

If signed the Artist is responsible for all unsold product which the record store gets to hold your money  for a year as they SEE if your ish gone sell at a Target in Boise Idaho where you spent no promotion $ smh! They send ALL unsold albums back at full price which comes out the artist money! 

So let's say, they say, Wayne shipped Platinum today... Well if after a year Wayne don't sell all those albums in Boise and 100,000 come back at full price, he didn't actually GO platinum... He SHIPPED platinum... Now he wants to see the books right? In this new industry, those distributors are obsolete a lot of new artist aren't signed, this is why they give away music free.. They live off shows and merch! We spend thousands of dollars on music only to sell it for $.99! You need a million fans to make a mill ... Fug that, I'm a hustler, I concentrate on a small portion off the whole, attack it until it totally submits, then move on to the next quarter and before you know it you got it Half beat! 

Moral of the story? ..., Know the Business, Own Your Shit, Invest in Self ... Keep your eyes on your on paper...
