“It is in our direct interest to help our artists be the best they can be” David Gjester IndiGoBoom

Getting a record deal with a big label is pretty much a thing of the past. Instead artists increasingly turn to digital distributors such as IndiGoBoom to help them sell music online with iTunes, Spotify, Beatport and other stores. But distribution was not the only thing a record label used to bring to the table. They also provided artists with a producer.
- Producers guide and nurture the artist through the writing and recording process.
- They contribute objectivity and years of recording experience.
- Without a good producer, what could be a huge hit song may easily go unnoticed.
- Oftentimes small adjustments can make or break a track. An excellent example is the song "Hero" that became a hit second time around by using a professional producer.
Generally speaking two things get in the way of DIY artists having access to a good producer.
- They do not know how to find one
- Professional producers are too expensive
Second Opinion solves both these problems for the artist by providing access to established record producers online at a marginal cost.
How Second Opinion works.
The artist is given a set of questions typically asked by producers during a first meeting with a new artist. The questions give the producer insights and help him understand the artist`s ambitions and motivation, musical role models and direction.
The producer then evaluates the answers, listens to the track and responds. Responses can include anything from suggested changes in arrangement or lyrics to image alignment or technical mix related issues such as instrument balance, timing, equalization and so forth.
Why Does IndiGoBoom Get Involved In Music Production?
“It is in our direct interest to help our artists be the best they can be” says IndiGoBoom MD David Gjester. “There is no reason production advice should not be an online service. I am actually amazed that it has not been done earlier,” he continues. “Second Opinion is heavily subsidized by us to make it work for DIY artists. Our ambition is that bringing producers and artists together will lead to longer-term relationships between the two. The first impressions of each other that artist and producer get from the “Second Opinion” service could work like a speed dating service. Who knows what chemistry may arise? ”
IndiGoBoom provides digital distribution for artists and labels to all digital stores and streaming services. Founded in 1999 by a group of musicians the company has a strong ongoing commitment to the independent artist community.
