SUBSCRIBE ON YOUTUBE Yes – Of course i had to make this video. How else could i be a music related channel? Thank you for asking! Other than that – There are a ton of reasons to sign to a label but also a ton of reasons not to. I couldn’t even talk about a fraction of all of them in this video.

(Okay maybe with an assistant, but it’s technically still in...

CAPTIONS welcome back to my channel welcome back to another video you are here probably...

An email list does not care if facebook changes it’s algorithm. An email list does not care if instagram changes it’s algorithm. An email list does not care if youtube changes it’s algorithm....
