The Anti-Label Era: The Feasibility of Being and Remaining a Successful Unsigned Artist Today
This paper is about the surge of emerging unsigned artists and other artists leaving record labels, which I call exaggeratingly ‘the anti-label era’. I do so with the aim to stress that times are changing. In attempts to investigate the discourse in the feasibility of being and remaining a successful unsigned artist the primary methods used are documentary analysis and survey. This highly theoretical paper explores issues such as why artists are turning away from labels and the necessity to rethink the music industry.
