Hey guys, my band just broke up and im doing a solo project consisting of keyboard, guitar, bass, and drums. Now im going to sound like a complete moron, so go head and rip. It is possible for a solo artist to get a record deal right? Im nowhere near one yet, but I plan on working hard and maybe in a few years attack one. So what im asking, is solo artists can get labels/deals, and how would I go about that, the solo that is? Like when I do live shows, what will I do?
Wrong Forum. Try this one and you may get a decent response, though:
I think it might be a little difficult to get a record deal, because you don't see many solo artists out there. Off the top of my head there is Isengard and NIN. I guess the key to being a solo artists is a **** load of determination and a huge diversity in your genres. The two bands I listed are pretty diverse if yo ask me.
When you do a live show, get a backing band. Thatd probably be the best bet.
