Deal – seeking a record deal with a major or independent
Securing a record deal on the best possible terms given the state
of the current music industry at the time, especially for your
genre of music, will inevitably require forward planning and a
carefully thought out strategy. You could pursue a record deal
with a major or independent label or you could of course decide
to release the song yourself.
From the outset identify the majors and/or independent labels
that deal in your genre of music and get the names of the heads
of a&r and their managers.
