BritishPopSongs is an online vanity record label that promotes a British sound ranging from early David Bowie, Roxy Music towards Hurts, Coldplay today.
With catchy songs, well written, for a public that might be a bit older now, but still are very fond of this sound. This does not mean that the sound has not a huge support among late teens onwards as well.
The label release singles at a fast rate, twice a month, the 1st and the 15th, with a small range of artists, often vocalists, that all gets very involved in their own releases.
The label was started by Ian Nilsen, a long time London resident producer/artist/songwriter.
It was the idea of promoting good songs on much simplified manners using the net initially and a hub website, that started it all. That was simply instead of old ways of pressing records and having 3 month lead times for every release. With the internet today you reach fans with minutes, and if your sound and songs are good enough, there is not much stopping you.
It has proven to pick up very fast, there has been well over 100.000 hits on the site over the trial period and the 1st of October is seen as the official launch date of the label. Songs can be purchased using all good online stores such as Amazon and iTunes.
Another very important point is not to throw significant money on a record from the outset, but let it showcase itself to the world before it eventually is decided if there is a high level of demand for the track. That would mean that a song could go several versions over time until the final end recording and package is laid down.
BritishPopSongs works with externals on a track by track level, or artist by artist level, where PR people, radio pluggers, add agencies and even private people gets involved in a release on a share of income level.
