Some of you may be familiar with Chris Gotti, brother of Irv Gotti & co-founder & former VP of Murder Inc Records. Well since The Inc ended, Chris has kept it going with many successful business ventures. He dived into the digital lane fairly early & has been reaping the rewards ever since. He has started a company that is an excellent response to the current state of the music industry. While many people still prefer to be signed to a record label, there are many others who, like Chance The Rapper, prefer the independent route. Well Add Ventures Music is a great alternative.
Ultimately, signing a deal with a label is basically getting a loan to be able to afford the resources to have your music promoted, monetized, & distributed. Having a machine behind you can be very beneficial because it allows your music to reach avenues that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to. However, many artists don’t think it’s worth it. Especially with how things are now, it seems better to be independent & have full control of your own music. The problem there is that while representing yourself, your resources are more limited & it can be difficult to get your music out there. Unless your stuff goes viral, odds are that you are going to remain fairly local until you’re able to tour enough to garner a solid fanbase & really capitalize on your art. That’s where Add Ventures Music comes in.
Add Ventures Music helps get you the contacts & resources necessary to push your music to the next level. They help with distribution, branding, monetizations, & promotion. The best part is that they offer very reasonable prices. Basically you get all of the best things about a label, but you still remain in complete control & ownership of your art. It’s the best of both worlds & a win-win for everybody. It is a very genius business model that is good for everybody involved, so artists can stay virtually independent, but have the backing to go farther.
