Micro Record Label by James Norman

Have you ever tried to run a record label? I have and it has been a nightmare. I might as well have walked down to the river and chucked bags of my hard earned money into its depths. But despite that it's still an incredible thing to do. The joy of seeing something reach fruition, the friends made and the sense of achievement. James Norman (no relation) has made a book about his experiences. It will make you laugh, it will make you weep. And like any good release these days it's severely limited.

10/10 Ben E. 5th September 2020

This book inspired me to start a micro label, after months of self-imposed market research and reading a dozen other books, this was the most refreshingly honest, refreshing, inspiring, and creative book that ultimately got me over the proverbial hump.

Now, some 5 months after starting the micro label, I'm having a great time. It's still very nascent, and it's hard work, but I'm having fun. If it weren't for this book, I don't think I'd be doing it. Truly, James is an artist, it reflects in everything he's done with Brian Records, and he's remained true to the aesthetic that makes Brian Records unique with the book.

It's a very enjoyable read, with just the right touch of humor. I highly, highly recommend it.
