From my point of view, building connections is the most important thing about running a label. Most of the artists on Res Wood I have never met but we still cooperate via the Internet and I feel that I do know them because of their music and their trust that our relationship is built on.
I think that if I was to view this as a business a lot of things would have to change. I would charge higher prices for the work I do and also sell the albums at a higher price. I would also be more demanding of myself and people on the label.
So I guess this is why it's a hobby but an important one. Of course it's a great feeling to make a sale but I feel that it's more so because of the fact that someone out there now has a copy of one of our albums rather than the income we have earned on it.
