Alex Day Strikes a Chord with Record Labels are Rubbish04:41 - Thursday 08 March 2012 - In Categories UK Entertainment, UK Videos
In December, 22-year-old singer Alex Day became the first unsigned act to reach number four in the UK charts after using Facebook and Youtube to promote his charity single, Forever Yours.
As a result, it would be relatively easy for him to sign a recording contract and get paid.
However, in this excellent video, Record Labels Are Rubbish, Day talks about the benefits of independence and explains why he’s in no rush to sign to a major label.
The story about his meeting with the A&R is hilarious, but sadly all too familiar.
Is Day an idiot for rejecting the six figure deals he’s been offered – or should he continue developing his career independently?
