Question by datonphillips: Record Deal or Independent Artist?
Would you rather get a record deal or remain independent artist? If you search that question in Google there are many blogs and websites that say it’s better to remain independent because you keep more money and get all the royalties. But how much money could you make as an independent artist if you don’t have the millions of dollars of backing from a record label to promote your music on the radio, music videos and get top quality production for your albums? So if you were a musical artist (preferably in popular music, such as Pop, Hip-hop/R&B or Pop/Rock) what would you rather do? Get a record deal or remain independent?

The part about independent artist actually making more of a profit then major artist is true. Major artist will sometimes only make one nickel for each album sold… I asked a similar question to this before, and I’m not 100% sure how much money an independent artist would make. But they’d make more of a profit then a major artist. Mainly because they don’t have to pay as much for promotion and such. Therefore, they save money..
But to answer your question, I personally would rather stay independent.
