A music label is also known as a record label. A record label is the circular piece of vinyl where all the music information is pre written. It is a brand or a trademark that is used when releasing music videos or music recordings. A record label/ music label can be small and very individualistic by working only for one client. On the other hand it can be a huge organization that handles many clients at the same time. There can also be sub-labels who are smaller labels working under a bigger organization. A music label can also be a publishing house for the music videos by helping in production, distribution and selling of the same.
They even do promotional events and manage the overall details of the music videos or recordings. Once an artist or band signs up with a record or music label they are now working under that brand. Music labels deal with all the contracts related to the music rights. They keep on investing in new artists and bands and help them get famous and sell their music. A music label maintains contracts with the clients and their managers about the music. Music labels work out the schedules for the artists/bands to perform and gain popularity at radio shows, TV events, and promotional stunts and for concerts and tours.
