Join our esteemed panel of music business veterans as we seek to question, process and define the functions of a modern day record label. In the city of Brotherly Love, our Nation's first Capital, let us join together and end all of the talk about how the music industry is changing and clearly recognize that the change has already come and gone.
It is a brand new (old) day in this modern day business of music, with brand new realities, opportunities, and artistic independence (which comes at a cost). Where does the "record label" fit into this new frontier? And what are the terms of engagement? How can an artist (or manager) be her own label? And really....what IS a record label in 2011?
