Being a musician is a business. One way to increase your likelihood of having a sustainable career as a musician is through the support of a record label, including things like recording funds, distribution, and promotion.
Resources such as Canadian Musician are great to help artists attract label attention, discover what the labels are looking for from artists, and find an optimal fit for the artist-label partnership. If you have what they’re looking for and they’re the right partner for your needs and aspirations, you’re that much closer to signing on the dotted line.
