FROM THE INTERVIEW
Has your opinion regarding the music business changed and/or evolved since your entry into it?
Yes, the music business has really changed since we entered it. Since it is getting harder and harder to make money selling albums alone, record labels are forcing artists to either go the independent route or agree to a so-called 360 deal. Under 360 deals, also called "multiple rights deals," record labels get a percentage of things that were previously off-limits to them, like concert revenue, merchandise sales, endorsements, and ringtones. The label now functions as a pseudo-manager. They get bigger percentages from the artists they represent because they promote the artist for longer periods. And, to add to insult, the label rarely does what's necessary to actively develop new opportunities for smaller artists. --- Because of this, our group decided to take matters into our own hands. We do things our way which is the way we understand.
