As ever more musicians choose to either operate their own label or sign direct to a streaming platform, what are labels, publishers and distributors doing to keep themselves relevant and essential to artistic life and development? How are companies whose structure and place in the value chain is under threat adapting to modern market realities, and what do they have that others do not? What are the realities of going it alone as an artist and what do you need to be aware of?
