My post today at the Green Phone Booth veers a little away from green living to talk about one way to help musicians make an album without a major record label:
Recently I came across one more way for musicians to bypass the major record label through this appeal from one of my favorite bands, Over the Rhine:Does it remind you of a CSA too?
Friends, the good news is this:
In 2010, there is no middleman.
It's just us and you.
So, for the first time in our career, we are simply going to appeal directly to you, the people who care about Over the Rhine's music, and ask if you will partner directly with us in making this new record....
Whatever funds we are able to raise will go directly to our label, Great Speckled Dog, to help take care of this new music we will make. It will be used to help cover actual recording costs, and give the songs the best send-off into the world that we can afford.
