we are about to finish our second cd. we're not on a label but im curious if it would help us at all. i know they do some distribution but i don't think they pay for recording costs and whatnot. But we don't need to worry about that since we record and mix everything ourselves. And we put the cd's together and did everything ourselves do the labels help you sell cd's? or should you release all of your music through multiple outlets and not just a label do they help get gigs or do any bookings? we really need to build a fan base locally and get airplay before we venture out of our area your thoughts?
