Why established musicians as well as lesser known artists should use China Albums? We don’t demand ownership of music rights. We help you to distribute your work as long as you own the rights, even if you are not well known or represented by any major labels. With China Albums you may earn the most whether you are well known or lesser known. This is good for you either short or long term.
Well Known: Do you know you may not get the maximum earnings if you signed a recording contract with a label? A recording contract is a legally binding document between an artist and a production or record company. The main purpose of the contract is to give the record/production company rights to use or sell recordings of the artists’ performances which would then be licensed to the record company by the artist. Contracts are biased in favor of the record companies, who control the master recordings and charge the full amount of production to the artists ‘possible’ royalty account leaving them with an outstanding cost unless the recordings are hugely successful. Many stars of yesteryear whose songs are still covered by major artists today are still paid on the basis of their original contracts and receive pennies rather than dollars in royalties. In addition artists are not paid on the actual number of records sold, instead royalties are calculated on only 90% of sales! This dates back to the age of 78 vinyl records when an average 10% would break in transit. China Albums provides much better gain.
Lesser Known: Hundreds of unsolicited demo’s are sent in every week to record companies, many of which are never listened to. The record company will only listen to the first 20/30 seconds of a song before sending out a rejection letter, so how does an artist/band get their masterpiece heard? Since the Record Company needs to pay the initial expenses with possible zero return, it will sign the least favorable contract with the artist. A lesser known artist has no bargaining power, he is happy with “any” deal. China Albums provides the opportunities for your initial start without your losing potential larger gain later on.
