In the final edition of our DIY Till We Die article series we chat to Blitzcat Records, a DIY label operating in London.
During our ‘DIY Till We Die’ article series we chatted to an array of independent artists, one thing that stood clear was that it allowed them total creative freedom.
Being an independent artist allows for total creative control and freedom but this does come with difficulties.
Paying out for an effective PR campaign can be an expensive ordeal and in some cases offer little return for the artist. However, there are plenty of tools and ways you can run your own campaign cost effectively.
Music distribution has shifted in the past decade for the benefit of independent artists and labels. RouteNote are leading this transition.
Taking the music world head on as an independent artist may give the creator more freedom but it can be a difficult road.
RouteNote simplifies the experience of getting your music on to online music stores and streaming services around the world.
Getting your music on services such as Spotify and Apple Music is free and easier than you realise when you use RouteNote for distribution.
After getting an artists perspective on the DIY ethos we wanted to chat to some DIY labels, kicking things off is the London based Beth Shalom Records.
We caught up with Isaiah Ross of Jack Swing to discuss his experiences as an independent artist, DIY scenes and much more.
