Union of record labels
The whole is more than the sum of its labels
Union is the name of the game
The Union of Record Labels is a private Facebook group for indie record label owners to come together and support each other across the various business elements of starting, running and growing their record label.
Brought to you by The Label Machine
Blueprints, courses, directories - The Label Machine is the #1 resource for anyone planning to start their own label from scratch. In just a few years, The Label Machine has helped hundreds of music entrepreneurs and artists run their independent labels.
Spearheaded by its founder, Nick Sadler, The Label Machine seeks to assist and nurture the worldwide community built around the Union of Record Labels. No question is too small or insignificant when it comes to managing record labels, and no one is better fit to answer these questions than Nick.

Take your place among our select group of independent labels and artists! We love having new members and getting to know all the talented people that make up the Union.
Engage with the Community
Introduce yourself. Ask relevant questions. Share helpful resources and input. Encourage fellow label founders. The more people engage with the community, the stronger it becomes!
The Union of Record Labels is a community of like-minded self-starters, not just a notice board for you to share your latest release or signing. Please be respectful of your fellow artists and label founders - there's a time and a place for shameless plugging in this community too, but understand that the boundaries are there for a reason and they must not be crossed.
