Major vs Indie: The Pros & Cons of Record Deals


As the recording industry continues to battle against the steady decline of physical album sales, and now steady decline in digital album sales, it can be difficult as an independent musician to determine the best path to take for long-term growth and success.

Ultimately this crossroads is met with three separate avenues:

  2. Independent Label
  3. Major Label
There are pros and cons to each avenue, which should be weighed carefully against what type of musician / band you are and how you expect to see growth.
