Re: Is getting signed to a Major really worth it anymore?
Interesting discussion. One of the things I've wondered about is how the majors are marketing music these days. It used to be that the radio waves were a good outlet for exposing new artists. Where I live most of the radio is formated with classic rock tracks. Everyday I could hear Stairway to Heaven and Bohemian Rhapsody several times if I needed that fix.(Several years back Robert Plant even gave $10,00 to a community radio station in Seattle to not play that song after hearing it programmed during pledge.) You do see these bands like The Arcade Fire who seem to come out of nowhere and are suddenly selling out major venues. I was wondering how that happens. Is that all internet and underground driven?
