Basically that R.O. Has started it's own label...it is up to us to submit artists that are unsigned and we will get to the point with it where we have viable product to offer on the website and distribution. Artists do not make much money on a compilation but if that is where we start...I am hip to it.
Out of all the studios that are here, their are litterally hundreds of unsigned works floating in the balance. For one, we are our own audience right now...but that will change as exposure happens.
Do you have anything Bob that you would like to see submitted as an R.O. Project?
I have at least 11 albums (various artist) that I have marketing control over...and I would love to see some of them as an R.O release.
Like I say, I am hip to a compilation ...but it is more for an advertisement that an artist money maker. Nice thing, we pool our resources and profit sharing is something that can happen as well.
I agree that you need your pass receivers down field and open before you through the football...but R.0. is a big stadium and we need teams and players. The crowds will come.
Submission has to be an agreement with your artist, yourself and R.O.
I feel Chris wants to see this portion of R.O. become another vehicle for artist to have avalible for exposure. I would love to buy some R.O. discs myself, or better yet, do market distribution in my area of about 500,000 people.
Each area can have an R.O. representative and be responsable for a select number of CD's to certain stores and sales tracking.
Put me down for the tri-state area of NW Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri.
We are selling ourselves, associated artist, and as many CD's as possible. R.O can make the difference. Involvement is key, it will not work by itself.
The project will only happen when submissions occur and can be agreed upon. The mix fest, and the mastering project is a test of cooperation. My end is running really smooth and I feel if an artist can have pressing avalible in limited quantities, the "network" of R.O.& supporters will get them out their fast. Remember, distributors do get a cut, as R.O. and the artist and other involved parties. I have finished product ready to submit. Packaged, sealed and bar coded. I hope others also want to take the oppurtunity to do their part and make this happen.
I am certain that Chris will have a thread on submissions and folks can send samples for him to pool and select as the first R.O project, be it a compilation or simply an artist that does not mind doing this....this way and seeing how the structure of R.O. will come together.
Right now...you may have sceptics, 1 year from now, people will be paying to get their project in here.. It is quite a network we have here and I would love to see it happen and do my part, (whatever it takes) to see it evolve. Plans are being put together as we speak.
Name your involvement, where you can best serve and reap the dividends in the future.
I also offer my studio services for a very discounted rate. Very discounted.
