To start a recording from scratch is something most of us have dreamed of one time or another. There are many labels today than, perhaps, at any another time. And if this is what I think Lazy Acres is in progress of doing, what would you do otherwise?
Now, the label we are currently working on is located in a quiet area with a very small market niche. We have many years of experience in the expansion of recordings and the promotion of artists. So instead of trying to strip for a way to earn money, we are looking more for a platform to help the band to grow and develop. We are in a fast track with CDR in contrast to the ordinary CD, the cost and for the fans and we find that each version is achievable.
The first album for example, has sleeve popups and other extras to go along with each copy; the second album comes with a color of your own choice.
We will not spend money - this is accurate enough – on the beauty of the CDR model. We are working on the basis of the flexibility of the plan for we might just in time build a warehouse with little investment in each version.
The magnitude of this situation is that we have a much larger catalog on a certain data because not all our money is tied on the site. From there, Sam is a great graphic designer and my experience is connected with promotion thus we do not spend that much than other record labels do. Then, there is the mail order (originally) label which has its advantages. Ok, I wanted to say my own label of the future, but what kind of start-up costs will I be looking at?
Well, for our part, nothing. Working at the same kind of copy as the other record labels, we can probably create our first CD or DVD in bulk. We can change the name Wombat RECORDS to ten different names if we like. Just look at Indie labels over the last few years and most had a few artists who are in one or two genres. Lazy Acres is currently specializing in that direction or we can take the ‘well, what if we sign’ approach. As already mentioned ’sign’ is probably an erroneous term - but yes, we are open to anything. (My children are witnesses to that, as I do with them when bombarded with many bizarre questions. But Connor, 18 months, was open as a CD drive. I think it is likely to be me or our boys A and R).
