Great interview with The Civil Wars about the benefits and pitfalls (mostly benefits) of not being attached to a major label.
Love hearing what they have to say about making music they love, their way. Joy’s coquettish stage persona belies her sharp, savvy, clear-eyed view of the music industry and what it takes to succeed. And, perhaps more importantly, what constitutes success.
And I found John Paul’s emphasis on crafting songs you believe in very inspiring and refreshing.
Bet they could give certain unsigned artist pals some pretty good advice if they ever needed it …. 🙂
What do you guys think? Should David rush into signing with a label?
