The independent record label or indie labels are part of the music industry, and for bands they are the number one target. Pure songwriters do need a publishing deal, they need to target the music publishers..
Some record labels have a publishing branch, so,they can take care for a publisher also..
As I always recommend to look professional, too many of the Indy record labels are not looking very professional enough. When I'm searching for record labels, I follow the same procedure. If a record label site is not looking perfect, I've my doubts about that label will act professional .
