There is a wealth of information on the internet, obviously. That’s how you found this blog.
If you have a question about almost anything, the answer is just a search away.
Here at Rough Wood Recording we’ve been encouraging artist to use TuneCore for years. In fact Tune Core was brand new when our first artist started using them to get access to iTunes. Since then they’ve added so many more online music stores, iTunes is just one of many.
One of the great things about TuneCore is the advice they give artist. You don’t have to sign up with them to get at it either. Check them out; www.tunecore.com
If you want to know how to make more money and not hand it all over to a manager or label, definitely dig in and read everything you can. At least you’ll know what they’re talking about.
There is an old expression, “It’s not what you make. It’s what you keep.”
Do things right, and you’ll make more money. Make enough money and the major record labels will notice you. Then, when they start coming around, you’ll be able to bargain from a better position. Some artists have found that they can do better as an independent. A major label deal may just mean more hands in your wallet.
