    Simply put, major labels are like corporations that have a ton of money and whose sole goal is to sell the artist.

    An independent record label is just what it sounds like,Independent. with today's technology an artist doesn't need to be ripped off by MCA (lynard Skynard joke)or the others anymore, however you wont see the sign on bonus or the contract to put out x amount of tracks to fulfill your contract, but you will see a bigger % of the profits if your albums sell well. Thanks

      Hello Friends....

      Independent (or Indie )labels have less capital to work with than major record labels - usually affecting production quality of albums and the distribution of. Independent labels are usually a stepping stone for an artist before going with a more mainstream label and making the big bucks, especially if it is a more underground type of music.

        A ‘Major Label’ is the name given to those labels that currently control over 80% of the records sold every year in this country.

        ‘Independent Labels’, in the purest sense of the word, are those record labels that distribute their records through what are called Independent Distributors,

            Hello friends

            The difference between major labels and independent lable Historically, in the mainstream recording industry the role of the producer on a major-label recording was simply as the director – similar to the role of a top director in the film industry. It was a very specific job and often had little to do with composition. Prior to the early 1990’s, producers were called to work on recording projects for their specific touch. People like Quincy Jones, Mutt Lange, Arif Mardin, Bob Weir, and Phil Spector were known exclusively for their realization of the instrumental landscape through the masterful arrangement, project management, and mechanical engineering of music. Rarely would a producer have a production company as it is known today.
            Boutique labels like Stax, early Motown, Sun Records, Blue Note, and Decca might be considered early models for what is known today as the production company. These labels were hinged upon the consistency of the orchestrated sound of the music they released.
            Even major labels like 1940’s Columbia Records and 1960’s Atlantic Records carefully selected their chief producers, essentially creating executive positions in production, in order to ensure a standard of the “sound” of that particular label. They also hired only their favored songwriters, instrumentalists, and background vocalists.
