Mark here. I was talking to my team about the label and my music, and they recorded some of it. You can watch that by clicking here. I want to continue this conversation with you guys on Wednesday. The Live Chat will be here on the site at noon Pacific. For more from that conversation, see below. Looking forward to speaking with all of you.
I decided to start my own label because I’m interested in trying to improve the potential relationship between an artist and his audience. Over the last 10 years obviously the music businesses has changed. I think a great mistrust has come about between labels and their customers and it’s led to piracy and illegal downloads. I feel that as an artist, if I can take responsibility for releasing my own music, take responsibility for the quality of those releases and take responsibility for my relationship with my audience, perhaps in some small way I can improve the situation. I’d like to get the “wow” factor back into records – back into music itself! I’d like to develop new musical products that an audience will truly enjoy so having my own vehicle to release my music is a good way to start on this adventure.
