Musicians Find New Backers as Labels Lose Power - NYTimes.com

Companies are planning to invest in artists who lack record deals and help them find audiences online.
The New York Times has been doing a pretty good job of documenting the long, slow slide off the cliff.

How much of your studio work is funded by record labels?

How many artists do you know who are arranging alternative funding or thinking about it?

I'm curious to see if a New Way emerges or if it will remain the somewhat Wild West scenario that exists right now.
