So you’ve decided to go against signing for a major record label, well at least for now. But there’s another option available to you: Start a independent record label. Now you may wonder why you’d want to do this if you’re avoiding record labels, and the simple answer is this: Brand recognition. Starting a independent record label could mean you simply think of a name, create a logo, and put both of them on all your releases. It’s that easy, but can make your work look a lot more professional and make your work instantly recognisable.
Now of course, if you want to take running a independent label more seriously it’s a lot more work then that, but this is as far as many artists realistically need to take it.
