    I know its sort of an unorthadox approach but......I run a small indie label with one successful release under our belt. This band has since gone on to sign with Victory Records (one of the largest indie labels around). I am exploring the idea of rather than using large commercial studios with inflated rates........using home studios to record our releases. I know that this would have to be done with a very competant engineer in order to come out with a good commercialized sound, and know its very possible.

    The unorthadox part im really looking into is whether any home studio owners would give studio time for our artists and rather than take fees upfront, instead take 20 points on the sales of albums, and all profits from the masters. We do have distribution, digital and physical, we would do music videos for all the artists, and albums would be serviced to hundreds of college stations. Basically im trying to save as much on the front end so that more money and attention can be placed into promotion......which in my experiences results in faster profits assuming the music is good.

    I guess the question is.......are there any studio owners out there that would find this kind of partnership feasable.

    Hey Chuck,

    I would definitely be interested in discussing this with you.
    The last album I tracked and mixed got solid airplay on 112 stations
    in the US and Canada. For a quick example of my work, here are
    some links.


    Please feel free to contact me. . . .

    Hey pete.........thanks for the reply. Do you have AIM? If so you can reach me at Britishchuk.

    A little more about us......the label i run is british records.....you can check us out at Britishrecordscorp.com The site is in the process of being redesigned so its not all complete yet. The band that went on to sign with Victory is The Junior Varsity. We will also be releasing an EP from NJ rockers Echo Screen, who are also being featured on Drive Thru Records comp coming out next month.

    Do you have a website for your studio by chance?

    Like I said, I know its a little unorthadox, but I'd love to talk to some more studio owners about the possibilities of a partnership.

    Hey Chuck,

    I do not have a website for the studio since I run it from my home
    and have been getting my work word of mouth advertising.

    I am not setup on AIM.

    Send me an email . . .


    I'll be happy to give you a quick call or you can call me,
    whichever is easiest for you.

    I'll check out your website as well.

    I'm very interested and have a home studio in the Chicago suburbs. I've got a few indie label projects coming in early Febuary, and I've actually been looking for something like this.

    Let me know if you are interested....and just so you know...the samples on my site are very rough mixes, and not mastered. I can send you an unmastered copy of final mixes if you'd like.

    Hi Chuck,
    I have a small garage studio near Brighton, on the south coast.
    I'd be willing to help out if suitable for no upfront cost.
    Email me at brian@adztrax.com

    Oops... now why did I assume that Britishrecords would be in Britain?!?!
    Obviously I'm no use to you.
