Reason most of the time for EP's with a new unproven artist is $$$. A guy like James is not cheap, so to run a full length is very expensive. Recording an EP is half of a major budget and if the EP doesnt move units, then the label can either do another EP or call it day and not move forward with a full length, or the artist. I dont know their deal. However if I were running a label. All my artists would be signed to 1 record firm with 2-3 options and their first release would be EP's of 6-8 songs for $3-5 to get them out there. If they didnt move units then I wouldnt excersize the option unless they really had serious promise and kids just werent getting their development yet.

If they did do well, then Id move on the option and do a 10-14 song full length at whatever the digital rate is.

I rambled, but yeah, thats basically why alot of labels do EPs first. To save money and right now, money is tight yo!

Money is tight but it is also really easy to cut expenses on recording. The band can just do pre-pro with the producer and have some really good mix it. Then they can get someone who is good but does not have a big name to record all the tracks so it will be cheaper. Otherwise, if the band can't record with out someone doing every trick on the book -- you shouldnt sign them.

with you on that, but i was mainly speaking for this particular case in the sense of James Wisner not being cheap. Not at all. So im sure thats why they are doing this route. Ill find out more today but I am pretty sure James is mixing. He told me he just a bunch of new gear and was really interested in finishing up the records start to finish minus mastering. He has sent alot of his stuff to be mixed by others TAI, NTL, UO etc... but he is so hands on that I know he wants to mix it too.

I agree with you on cheap production value and higher mixing quality. I know quite a bit of records out there that were done for nothing but used a really good mixing engineer to make it sound ALLLOOOT better then what it would have.
