Call for major record labels to change for digital age
BBC News
Over the past 20 years the music industry has had to deal with plummeting CD sales, online piracy and new ways of listening to music via the internet.
Tashon Pulluaim's insight:

In this article I read about the Digital Age and how the modern day is changing the music industry. It also states that different artist have different opinions about the way they are promoting their music by using spotify and other music apps in that nature. Some feels as if they are just taking their money and isn't recieving nothing in return but streams for their music while other artists feel like it's a revolutionary app or new way of getting your music to your fans. It''s really just a big comparison or debate about how the musicians feel about the big name company that promote their music.

 

Pro's: Everyone can find your music in various places to be heard more frequently.

Con's: The musician aren't getting paid enough money, and they are getting charged a fee every month for placing their music in different places, apps or music sites.

Tashon Pulluaim's insight:

In this article, I had to opportunity to come across some very distinctive information. 35% of the United States Of America Market for music belongs to the independent labels. Even though most musicians or record labels go threw major companies for the distribution, being independent just means that you have the right to sell your music instead of giving it away or letting fans download your music for free.

How To Get Your Music Signed By Top Record Labels | Independent Labels V.S. Major Record Labels | Scoop.it
In a musician’s career there are few milestones more important than that first shiny release on a top record label.
Tashon Pulluaim's insight:

As I read this article, I was truly amazed with the information that was given. In the defined print it states: If any independent artist wants to get a major record deal, you will have to make a great record and get it into the right hands." But  seeing that everybody want's to either be a DJ, Musician, or Producer it becomes more difficult for the actual inspiring artist to get known because of ratio of people that's interested in joining the music industry. 

Pro's: It's possible to get signed to a major record label as long as you make a Hit Single and place it into the right hands.

Con's: Seeing that the music industry is already over populated, it becomes more difficult for the indie artist to get their music heard because of the abundance of musician, DJ's and Producers.

If you play your cards right you can find a record label prefect for you. I completely agree with his point of view when it comes to getting signed with a label. Build a game plan and do your research to make sure you know what you want in the label. Stand out when it comes to your music. Try to sound like yourself, find your tone and perceptive on music.
