No label, no problem!
Many of our users here at Routenote distribute their music without being signed to a record label, this is not a problem! Many well-known artists like Billie Eilish, Chance the Rapper and Alan Walker all came to be known without the help of a major label.
If you’re not associated with a label, you can simply enter your artist name in the label line when creating your release.
Here’s what not to put in your label field:
- Major labels if you’re not signed to them, such as ‘Universal’ or ‘Warner Chappell’
- ‘Unsigned’, ‘no label’, ‘none’ , ‘independent’ etc.
- Contact information
We’ve written a handy blog post about how to start a label online, which can be found here.
