"Miss Krystle is what you need in today’s music business. As a proven artist herself, she knows the ins and outs of the industry. When you are building from scratch, make her strategies a solid part of your foundation."

- Manuel, CEO of Prestigious Music


Hi There!

I'm Miss Krystle

I've been in the music business since I was 4 years old. I am the owner of law firm Delgado Entertainment Law, PLLC (feel free to Google us!), and as entertainment attorney and record label owner myself, I work with major labels like Sony, Universal, and Warner every day, and have assisted students in closing multi-million dollar deals.

My passion is showing record label owners how to operate like major labels, while remaining independent. It's not only about understanding the legal aspects of running a record label, it's also about the day-to-day strategies and techniques that make a BIG difference over time.

Why is now the perfect time for independent record labels?

We are in an independent record label movement, and with the dramatic rise in business owners starting their own record labels, independent record labels are now starting to compete with the majors.

Put in the effort, and keep 100% of the profits you earn from your record label.

This course is for someone who either wants to start a music business or just needs help growing.

If you've read this far, then I know you're serious. But you may be hesitant with thoughts like... 

"I don't have enough time for this"

Go at your own pace: I have specifically built this course to work with your busy schedule. Whether you are in school, have a day job, a family, or other life commitments, the short videos allow you to go through the course at your own pacing.

"I get distracted"

Easy To Understand: As mentioned previously, you have to be committed to make your dream a reality. Life will always throw distractions your way, but it's up to you to stay focused. However, we have made each short instructional video easy to understand, so you won't get lost!

"How is this different from other courses?"

Taught By Real Record Label Owner & Attorney: There is nothing on the market like this course. I not only bring the information you need to know as a record label, because I am a record label owner myself, but as an entertainment attorney, I represent high-level record labels, that follow the same strategies.

"I don't want to create another job for myself."

Make This Your ONLY Job: I understand! It's not about creating a second job. It's about making this YOUR ONLY JOB. Our students have scaled their record labels to six-figure businesses, and you can too. Enough excuses, enough planning, LET'S GET TO WORK.

"But there is already so much free content already available online."

Get The Correct Information FAST: Today, more than ever, people don't want more free content, they want the RIGHT information quickly. Building record labels is my bread and butter, and something I do on a daily basis. I'll walk you through the most effective ways to bring your record label to market, and how to make money fast.

"My record label will be so small.. I'm not sure it would be worth it."

All Labels Start Small: A small record label is not only normal, but actually a real advantage. Why? Artists want attention and help. If you have a small team, you won't take on a ton of artists at the same time, and you can really dedicate your time to each artist, and learn how to build your business the right way. Sometimes growing too fast can lead to big legal liabilities, which I specifically help you avoid in this course.

"Artists won't sign with me... I'm not well established yet."

Artists WILL Sign With You: The sooner you start, the faster you will get to where you need to be. You will be surprised how little artists care about what stage you're at. They just want help.

"How long can I expect the course to take?" 

One Afternoon Of Learning: You can go as fast or as slow as you want. We have had students go through this entire course in just one afternoon. We've ensured that you can take your time as well, if needed, by making the videos short and easy to understand.

"Will a record label be worth my time?"

Big Returns: What you'll find is that it doesn't take many artists to begin seeing BIG financial gains. It's not about one song, it's about building a whole catalog of music, which will be an investment that pays off big time for you down the road. Our students have earned seven figures in the sale of their music artists' catalogs, and you can too.

NPG Records. Prince created his own label NPG Records and released music independently through his Internet subscription service, NPG Music Club, after leaving Warner Bros. The artist had already created Paisley Park Records, which had gotten shut down. He remained independent, and released his music through his label and often distributing through major labels such as Arista, Universal and Columbia.

- Prince

The Null Corporation. Trent Reznor and Rob Sheridan of Nine Inch Nails created The Null Corporation after the band left Interscope Records. The label has also released an EP for How to Destroy Angels and the Oscar-winning score for “The Social Network”. Reznor posted a message on the band’s website after NIN decided to leave Interscope.

“I have been under recording contracts for 18 years and have watched the business radically mutate from one thing to something inherently very different and it gives me great pleasure to be able to finally have a direct relationship with the audience as I see fit and appropriate. Look for some announcements in the near future regarding 2008. Exciting times, indeed.”

- Nine Inch Nails

Dim Mak Records. Founded in 1996, this independent, Los Angeles-based record label has released music in punk, indie rock, hardcore, hip hop, and electronic dance music.

- Steve Aoki

If you're one of these 3 types of people, record labels are especially successful

You're an established expert. If you have experience working in the music business, you will be able to leverage your record label to profitability quickly, and will know key music business lingo to communicate efficiently with your peers.

You have artists. Either you are already working with artists and musicians, or you are considering signing them to your label.

You want to scale your existing record label. You may already have a record label, but are not sure how to scale it into becoming your full-time job.

Now Is The Perfect

Time For You.

Let Me Explain...

If you're already an established expert

(Artist, Musician, Manager, Agent, Or Music Business Owner)

Starting a record label just makes sense. You already know how the music business works, and instead of giving away ownership and control to someone else, you can build your own record label and receive 100% of the profits and future benefits.

Plus, as noted above, we have seen countless bands and artists who learned that starting their own record labels ultimately made the most sense.

And my guess is, you are tired of working for others. Am I right?

Putting in hard work, blood, sweat, and tears, feels a lot better when you are working for yourself and your own record label.

It's an unfortunate truth that people in the music business tend to take advantage of each other. Starting your own record label gives you the leverage to do the deals you want, and break away from working for other people.

Protect your investment of time and effort by building your own business.

Have Questions? Call Us!



You're ready to build.

Many record label owners decide to get started because they are already working with artists, and want to make things official.

Protect your investment by having
proper agreements with your artists, and making sure other labels cannot come and take your artists. Ensure you protect your investment of time and money into the artists every step of the way.

This requires two things:

1. Proper contracts, and

2. Knowing how to negotiate your artist agreements.

This will become standard.

You will need to have a standard artist agreement that you use for all your talents. Once you understand how the agreement works, you can
confidently negotiate and enforce your agreements to protect your investment.

Clear agreements eliminate tension.

Having a clear artist agreement secures your rights as the record label, but it also eliminates tension once issues come up, because you now have a written contract to refer to, if and when an issue arises.

If you want to scale your existing record label

(Or you already have a business, but need help getting to the next level)


Once record label owners start their businesses, sometimes they are lost on the next steps, or fear what they do not know.

You'll quickly discover, once you have the right information, that you don't need to be an "expert" in order to grow a successful record label, you just need to know the steps to do it the right way.

There are MANY examples of record label owners who start their businesses, but never grow or scale.

FIXT Records is a great example of this. Founder and artist, Celldweller, decided to grow his label after years of trouble with working with other record labels and distributors.

FIXT has now become a major film/TV/video game licensing company, obtaining placements in Call of Duty, John Wick 3, Disney's Mulan and Speed Racer, just to name a few.

Typically film/TV/video game licensing fees can run anywhere from $50,000 - $300,000, and can be one of the best revenue streams for record labels.

While FIXT has identified itself as a future rock record label, what we can learn from its accomplishments that by going narrow, and hyper-focusing on what a record label loves to do best, a label can more quickly achieve a name in the music business, and scale to include other genres of music from there.

Unfortunately, despite popular belief, not all record labels will make it.

You will experience turbulence

But with what I'll teach you, the overwhelming majority of our record label students thrive.

And that is what I'll teach you. You will know not only HOW to deal with problems, but how to prevent them altogether.

Just imagine how it will feel to see sales from your artists coming in month after month, regardless of what's happening in the market?

Imagine being able to finally have some breathing room in your business... knowing that you have taken all needed steps to stay legally protected.

Imagine having the space to be creative with all that you do, and to just focus on finding and launching the next biggest artist to hit the music business?

Imagine growing to six-figures in just 12 months from now?

You want to have everything needed to succeed, which is why you are getting more than just the core course. I am including extra BONUS materials to enhance your learning experience and ability to hit the ground running with your record label.

Have Questions? Call Us!


Bonus #1
Record Label Agreement

I include the agreement you will need with your artists. This template can be modified to fit the specific needs of your record labels, but the important stuff always stays the same:

  • Ownership of music.
  • Reimbursement of your label expenses.
  • Ownership of music videos.
  • Protection against improper sampling by the artist.
  • Album commitments by artists.
  • Options for future albums.
  • And, in this exclusive bonus, unlimited use of templates.

Have Questions? Call Us!


Bonus #2
Contractor Agreement

This is the EXACT template I use for my clients who hire team-members to work with their record labels.

The most dangerous thing you can do is hire someone to work for you, without defining the terms of the relationship, including WHO WILL OWN WHAT.

If you hire someone to do videos, music, graphic design, or anything creative, you need to have a signed Contractor Agreement.

You will have your relationship clearly defined to avoid issues down the road, including ownership disputes.


Have Questions? Call Us!


Bonus #3
Management Agreement

Many of our record label clients need management agreements for their artists. Having a template you understand will save you a step in and when the need comes up. Whether you are managing an artist, or overseeing a new manager taking over, you want to make sure your artist is protected with a clear management agreement.

This bonus will come in handy as you continue to build your record label roster.

Have Questions? Call Us!


Bonus #4
Crew Member Agreement

When you have a music video production, you want to make sure all cast and crew sign a Crew Member Agreement. This will ensure your record label owns the music video, and that all terms are clearly defined.

You will be able to use this template on all your music video productions, and will have unlimited access to this template.

Have questions? Call Us!


Bonus #5
Photographer Agreement

Make sure you own your pictures! When your artists do photoshoots for their upcoming albums, press, or anything else, you want to make sure ownership is clear. If you do not have a Photographer Agreement, the photographer owns the images, and copyright issues can come up. Yikes! This is an important template to have.

This bonus will come in handy whenever your artists need to do photoshoots throughout their career.

Have Questions? Call Us!


Bonus #6
License Agreement

When it comes time to license your artist's music to TV and film, you will want to have your own record label licensing agreement. This template clearly defines the term of the license, including additional licensing fees if the song is used in different ways by the show or film production company.

This bonus will set you up for all TV and film licensing opportunities.
