Hi Guys/Girls,

I'm a final year record production student at Southampton Solent University looking for your opinions towards record labels, what you want from them and what you've come to expect from them.

Basically, for my final year project, I am looking to build a business, namely a record label, but I don't want to just find a band, 'sign them' and release their music (in short), I'd like to do more for them than that!
But I'd also like to see what other musicians and artists out there in the industry would like to see from a record label; what aren't you getting from one or haven't gotten from one in the past that's put you off them?
And what attributes do you feel I could offer any aspiring artists that would be different from anybody else?
