Also we will be talking about why a major label deal may not be best for you as an artist, online record deals (are they any better?); production music libraries; music for games; online song-pitching services and marketing strategies. What’s legit and what may not be. And as we asked our A&R panel last week, we’ll ask John his thoughts on what it takes for an artist/band to get signed to a record label these days, as well as how are those decisions are made in the few executive suites of A&R departments.
We’re more than ‘just talk,’ so tune in this Sunday at 2 pm (Pacific Time).
Also, PSA’s, film/TV music/recording industry current news, commentary, and open phones.
