A simple guide to a complex industry. As the title might suggest, this is a simple, beginner”s guide to setting up an independent record label that will hopefully answer some of the basic questions of ”How to set up a record label” for anyone thinking of getting into the business. These are some of the key points that I learned first hand as Director of A&R for Busy Boy Records.This guide is intended purely as a guideline and in no way covers all the complexities and problems that may face a fledgling record label. The first thing you have to ask yourself is ”Am I ready for this?” Are you that committed that you should be committed? If so, you might be halfway there.
