In my last post, I posted an article Tom Silverman wrote about the indie music business. As a disclaimer, I must say that I set up and consulted the label for TMI Boyz--the group listed as the second most successful indie label in 2008 and 2009, AND the #1 successful RAP indie label of all indie releases in 2009. Of 200+ labels that year that released indie projects, only 13 sold above 10,000 copies. TMI Boyz came it at #2 accounding to SoundScan, but since our goal was NOT to ever sign to a major label, most of our sales were not SoundScan sales, and the group did faaaaar better than it would appear from the article.

Congrats to TMI Boyz. They are always Grinding For A Purpose. #1!!
