Crowdband Turns Record Label Into A Democracy

 

Crowdbands has a drastically different approach to running a recording label. Instead of the traditional model, Crowdbands leaves all major decisions to its online community.

For $25 a year, you become part of the group that decides via voting what to do with an album as it’s being recorded. Decisions like which single to release, cover art ideas and where to go on tour.

The first artists to brave this new model are The Donnas, an LA-based punk band (you probably remember their single “Take it Off”).
