The begining of a new label, the trial and error, the long road ahead.

(5/31/18) Building the Record Label for today with the artist with music you can feel in mind. 
So it begins. A long road with allot of trial and error to start a record label with the artist who want's to focus on their music in mind. The idea for Soul Mouth Records is find original sounding artists you can feel. We are not looking for the artists that sound like everyone on the radio. Were not looking for the safety in music were looking for those who are willing to bleed their souls into their music so much that people can just close their eyes and feel it, all while having their own original sound. Artist who will push their range, who will reach deeper into their soul and let it out in their music. Artists that paint pictures of long winding pathways and scenic bridges, in the listeners mind. Artist's that play music simply because they need to. This is what we are looking for because, this is what makes people not just like an artist, it makes them love an artist. We will utilize every new way for artists to make money in an ever changing digital market place as well as finding ways for them to earn money in a revival of an analog world also. We will create revenue with Soul Mouth Booking's, Soul Mouth Radio Streams and the Soul Mouth Store. We will create buzz with Soul Mouth Magazine and Soul Mouth Marketing as well as with the Soul Mouth PR division. We will recreate the record industry to meet an ever changing music world. Our goal is to build the label as we build the artists. Were not looking for an artist to have ten thousand fans, were looking for them to have music good enough that we can help them get to one hundred thousand fans. With a strong roster, a digital radio station, some good PR, and focused marketing we will do our best to make that happen.

    I am curious, how did you come to the idea of creating your own label? Also, I would like to know, what the features will this label have? If you want more, you can visit www.findwritingservice.com/blog/top-significant-events-of-2000s .

    My band, the Jason Gisser band was signed to an indie label. Most indie labels have the hear but not the money. We paid for everything ourselves, but we split the profits with the label. We were booking our own gigs, we payed for our marketing, our PR, our album, and our merch. Yet they still took 50%. Just for distribution. After our deal was up we were approached by a major. I spoke with them for about an hour. We went over our numbers and they went over what they would do for us and percentages they offer. I asked what his favorite song on the album was and he said, I love em all. I asked if he heard the album, and he said no but his people did. So I said your willing to sign us without hearing the album. He said he had people for that and it didn't matter because our numbers were going in the right direction. I politely declined. I was playing with my band at some music festivals and as you know when you play one as long as you do well, you start getting calls to play at more festivals. One we did was about an hour from where I grew up and about 40 minutes from where I live, but I had never heard of it. They have been doing it for 10 years. When I saw some of the talent and a sea of fans. I started to think, wow there's all this talent and I don't care what there numbers are. I know if you get them some exposure you will get the numbers. You need to take a chance on something you believe in in order to give people something of substance. Something real, with feel. Something they wont forget. Something they will believe in from their soul. Something they will talk about and share with their friends. We could create a movement. Something with the heart of an indie who still loves the music, but the money of a major so you can afford to cover the things the band needs to make the successful. So for the money I built Soul Mouth Radio. We will sell advertising on the station and a percentage of the money keeps the station open, and the other will go to bringing bands to the next level. The next step is a music magazine that covers the artists we play on the station. It's a alternate music industry based on the music, the feel, not their looks, age or popularity.
