"Record labels are signing more performance packages than creative acts, but we're not letting that stop us. All we need are the funds to get started," says Gabrione. "Thanks to the Internet, the music scene has evolved from large commercial conglomerations that did everything a band needed, to small specialized and independent companies that each help with specific aspects of a band's career. Each of these companies, from radio promoters to distributors, tour managers to public relations firms, can be easily found on the web and each are hungry for bands that can afford their services. By securing the necessary investments, we can do everything ourselves that a record label would have normally done for us."

This plan also benefits the band in that they also receive their share of the sales ... not only for the money they have also invested, but also for their time and hard work. This plan is very fair towards the band, unlike many of the contracts record labels are notorious for, where the bands are always the last ones to ever see payment for their work.
