Tracey Flamenco ROCKS!
“You hear horror stories from a lot of major label bands, but bottom line, if the conditions were right, I’d give it a try.”
I found this last statement intriguing. Curious about how other artists felt, I asked soon-to-be breakout artist, KATYA, (who’s self released debut album Rock Lives comes out later this year) how she felt about major labels.
“I would love to be signed to a major label,” says Katya. “It would be great to put out an album every year and then go out on tour for the remainder of the year. The album [Rock Lives] took three years and eight months because I have no backing, management or label…If you put an album out yourself you are setting up every recording session, paying your musicians and making sure everybody signs your contracts for your project. You have to be very business like and then be able to be creative in the studio at the same time. It is a lot of Rock and Roll left and right brain switching!”
