We had to get the record in the can. Many hours of hard work in the studio were involved, over a number of months. But that’s to be expected – and, as always, the recording process had been both musically rewarding and huge fun.
Finally, I felt that in ‘Flying Blind’ we had the record we wanted. Great!
However, this time round, I was not a member of famous band, supported by a big record company doing all the commercial work. As an artist with my own ‘indie’ record company, I realised that completing the recording of the 11 tracks had been only the start.
To be able to bring the record to you, I’ve had to involve myself with detailed legal contracts, we well as the many other commercial requirements of the music business. Not only is it a fascinating learning process - I’m really enjoying coming to grips with it!
Fortunately, to assist me with all this, I have the guidance of David Main, a contract lawyer and internationally-experienced music business professional.
