What do you do if you’re a composer and can’t get your work recorded? (A very common scenario by the way)

You start your own record label of course and that’s exactly what composer/songwriter/educator Randy Klein did.

And the music world is a richer place because of it,

Among other gems, is the label for Bobby Sanabria’s “West Side Story – Reimagined.”

Note: Due to some truly epic logistical problems, I had to record from an unfamiliar location and the sound quality on my end of the conversation is not up to par.

Don’t let it daunt you. This is a fascinating “behind the scenes” look at how musicians are making their own opportunities in the 21st century. Very inspiring.
