Record Companies

What does a record company do?

The Record Company

If they like an act they will get them to sign a contract. They send the act to the recording studio, where they make the record. The record company then has to distribute the record to the shops, and if agreed, upload the songs onto the Internet. They also have to publish the song, and do some administrative work.

Recording Studio

They should pay for the recording studio and the act shouldn’t have to pay anything.

Music Publisher

As an independent, I pay for my own recordings and I upload to the Internet via Record Union. So basically I am the Publisher and I don’t have to bother with a contract.

Independent Musician

So why bother with a record company? Most of the contracts are a rip off anyway. Besides the fact that its almost impossible to be signed by a record company, you may as well be an independent.
