It Happened to Me: The Record Label I Was Signed to Went Under
Tuesday, November 24, 2015

Signing a deal with a record label is often thought of as not just a major step in an artist's career, but a signifier that all the hard work that's been put in has paid off. To put it another way, it's a heck of a high. That high, however, can be short lived if the label you sign to folds. No one ever wants to think about the proverbial walls crashing down, but it's a very real possibility. And when it happens, it can leave an artist in an extremely difficult place.

I caught up with four artists who were on record labels that folded: Lacey-Lee Brass of Lillix (who were signed to Maverick); Ace Ha (2KSounds); Michael McKnight of Soulidium (Adrenaline Music Group); and Patrick Keenan of The Winter Sounds (Livewire Recordings) to find out about their experiences and how long it took them to get back on their feet.
