New York, NY, February 10, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- In a climate that is unstable with layoffs, merges, buy-outs, sell-outs, FCC investigations, and lawsuits, how can independent artists, labels or production companies compete and attract major label interest?
New technologies, illegal down loading and explosive changes have forced Major Labels to tighten up the purse strings and demand accountability for marketing campaign budgets. Today’s music industry is changing and only one thing is certain – attracting major label interest is almost impossible without first promoting and marketing yourself, states Linda Felder, President of Many Moods Production Company.
Many Moods of New York City, offers free music resources and promotions to emerging artists and veterans in the music industry.
