For our fourth episode of Band Basics, we asked Mike Zimmerlich of 80/20 Records to join us in the studio. As the co-founder and President of 80/20, we talk shop on running a record label, submitting your music, contacting the press, plus a whole lot more. Hosted by Mark Anderson, catch this hour long conversation with Mike and (hopefully) learn a thing or two as they discuss a myriad of topics about being in the music business. Check out our interview with Mike below as well as his Spotify playlist that not only features the two songs we preview in this episode, but a bunch of bands both local and abroad.
Tune in to each edition of Band Basics where we feature new guests and band advice every episode.
So, here’s the deal. We’re always receiving questions from musicians that fall outside the scope of information we usually offer as a publication. Over the history of our website we’ve tried to offer helpful hints here and there on a variety of subjects, from booking shows to contacting the press, but we feel that we should delve even further. Welcome to Band Basics 101.
