I strongly encourage you to do that as well.
This is a complicated question, ha ha. I definitely think that the role that labels play in the distribution for new artists is getting smaller and smaller every day, and I think that eventually, in order to make a name for themselves, artists will have to play the internet PR game on their own terms. Whether that’s a negative or a positive depends on how good they are at it, and I can imagine that some really good musicians who aren’t so good at self-promotion might get lost in the fray. However, I don’t think that label-less time’s entirely here yet, and indie bands who have earned a really devout internet following might be desperate to sign with a major label just to get enough money to tour or live on. And I don’t think it’s fair to hold new artists to the standards of well-established artists that are connecting with their fans directly, like Amanda Palmer with her million dollar Kickstarter.
4) If you could tour with any single band or musician who would you pick and why?
5) Who is your favorite New Kid on the Block?
I was a bit too young to be caught up in that hoopla, but I’ve always thought Joey McIntyre seemed the most fun. And the cutest.
6) Who would win in a musical fight: Jack Black or Jack White?
White would win, but Black would have a hell of time competing!
