You probably meet some very interresting music business professionals
There are five big Major record labels and a lot of small independent record labels!
For instants, in the UK alone there are a few hundreds of independent labels, and a few hundreds of music publishing companies.
In the U.S. alone there are about 11,000 Independent labels. Some are bigger and some smaller then others..Most of these labels have a small rooster , and currently signing any artists at the moment, unless it's necessary.
Even if you think that's is a large number, the chances to get signed to a record label or a publisher a rather small. So, all those getting to achieve a record or publishing deal are considered as to be "the lucky ones".
Why? Because there are millions of artists all trying to get big..All fighting to get signed..Yep, this business isn't a business as usual , and certainly not for the sensitive.. It's hard, it's tough..to succeed...
