Very Serious: Does anyone want to start a record label?
So I am early on in my career in banking (return offer) and a major label has shown interest in my demo but they really want to reinvent me as a rapper and I am not really down with that. I recently had a eureka moment with 2 songs I want to release as my debut and figured to bootstrap it with $20k in private student loans haven't taken the plunge and applied yet. Currently booked to record the songs in January next year.
I frequently see "Whats the point of life", "I have nothing to do", "Having an X life crisis" type posts on here and I was wondering if anyone wanted to join me on this journey, if you're looking for something out of the ordinary.
Before you get to roasting me think about it Jason Flom, founder of Lava Records Dad is Joseph Flom who made his money in M&A. Mumford and Sons was funded in their early career from band member Winston Marshall's dad who is the CEO of Marshal Wace. Koch records was founded by a German Banker and the list goes on.
So its not too crazy an idea for people in finance to dabble directly in the arts. Is there any one that has any experience in this industry or wants to know more let me know or PM me.
PS This is more geared towards senior colleagues (VP and above) who are bored and can risk thousands of dollars on an endeavor like this. I don't think it is wise, safe or even advisable someone in Associate or Analyst level should risk such a large part of their paycheck and possibly reputation in this manner.
