It’s been a dream of mine since I was young to start a record label and to help promote the bands I love. Over the last few years the music business has changed a lot and subsequently a lot of independent labels have died out, which is a real shame but I still feel that if you do it right, it can be a success.
405 Records won’t function in the traditional way. We won’t be signing any bands to three album deals. Instead we’ll be releasing singles/EP’s in limited runs, which we’ll sell through this site.
I still believe in the magic of actually buying a physical product so we’ll be using the CD format as much as possible, with the emphasis on beautiful packaging at all times.
So there we have it. Another guy trying to start a record label. Let the hunt for bands commence.
