Record Labels

When looking at record labels i first looked at artists who have similar music to my song. The first band i thought of was moby, he has the same experimental, classical style music. I looked at the labels he was with and found a UK label called mute labels.

They specialise in experimental, unusual music, which is like my song. The parent company of this label is EMI.

It is a multinational music company headquartered in London, United Kingdom. It is the fourth-largest business group and family of record labels in the recording industry and one of the "big four" record companies. This does mean then that maybe mute labels is not so independent.
Another similar artist is danger mouse. He worked with Danielle luppi on the album Rome, which is very similar to my music. When looking at danger mouse i looked at what label the album Rome was on, which was Parlophone.

Parlophone specialise in a variety of different acts but are largely involved with jazz. My song has a bit of jazz in it so maybe this label may suit my song. However again parlophone's parent company is EMI.
Another similar artist i thought of was Shirley bassey, especially as she sung some bond songs which i think my song is very similar to. The first record label i came across was Philips.

They specialise in classical music, which i believe my song has a hint of. They also have a parent company in the form of universal music group.
