In past videos, I explain how much money you can make as an independent artist. In this video, I explain real and practical ways to get yourself a major label record deal. Being independent can be very rewarding but what are some of the advantages to being signed to a major label? I speak about the advantages of being affiliated with a major record label and give you tips on how you can go from being an independent artist or indie label to being signed to one of the major record labels. Major label affiliation can help take your music career to new levels.

The big four major record labels are Universal Music Group (USA based) — 29.85%, Sony Music Entertainment (USA based) — 29.29%, Warner Music Group (USA based) — 19.13%, EMI Group - 9.62%. Independent labels make up for the remaining 12.11%. There used to be four major labels—EMI was once one of them—but Universal Music purchased EMI in 2012. So where once there were the Big Four, now there's just the Big Three.

These labels can make up almost 80 percent of the music market or even more depending on the year, although it was estimated to be about two-thirds in 2016. Artists who are signed to one of these major record label are either signed to the central label or signed to a subsidiary of that label. A band might be signed to Sony, or it might be signed to Columbia Records, which is a Sony subsidiary. These subsidiary labels have their own staff, they sign their own artists and they make most of their own financial decisions, but in the end they must answer to their parent company. The "main" company sets their overall budget and makes decisions regarding things like reducing staff.
