With the massive boom of the Internet and free space on-line to open up your own business; recording artist are using this to their advantage and are now marketing and promoting themselves without the help of major labels.

In order to get to the top, you have to be prepared and have a strategy. We are conditioned to think in a box, but you have to learn to think outside the box.”
Knowles adds that it is especially important for parents of aspiring artist to...
