President and owner of Miles High Recordsis an artist owner himself, with seven CD's out as vibraphonist/composer Mark Sherman. After releasing many CD's independently and watching the transformation of the record business Mr Sherman decided to open his record company up to other artists who want to release and own their own product. In this climate that surrounds the record business it has become obvious to me that an independent artist can do as much for their own careers as any record company can, as a huge part of the revenue stream and promotion come through the internet. In addition the artist cares more than anyone else about the course of their career. You only need look at the staggering number of record stores(2700) that have closed in the last year in the United States. Even one of the biggest chains in the world in Tower records went bankrupt last year.
Miles High Records distributes through City hall Records and the huge download distribution company IODA, that services over 300 different music download and ring tone download companies. The artists product not only ends up on Itunes, Emusic, and the other household names on the internet but there are 100's of other sites which sell downloadable music, and downloadable cellular phone ringtones.
