We’ve created a bunch of content in the form of videos, articles & podcasts, where both artists and industry experts share their insight and experiences to help you move forward in your career.
We believe it is possible to create a sustainable and fulfilling career as an independent artists, and we’d love to be a part of your journey. Welcome!

We LOVE Independent Music
Here at IAIMA it’s not that we are against record deals or artists partnering with labels to further their careers. On the contrary! We love it when an artist enters into a deal that has a long lasting positive effect on their career and trajectory.
We do however realise that for over 90% of the music artist community, this will not be the route their careers will take. Most artists will create and release their music independently.
For so long this has resulted in artists feeling less than, and their music and contribution seeming less important and valid. However if music truly transcends politics, socio-economic borders and other such things that can divide us, how can it’s significance be determined by a mere contract?
The truth is there are many examples of successful independent careers. More and more artists are building a team around them, and are moving forward boldly and successfully.
Our artist library is growing! We are continually creating content for you.
Our film bank is full of short videos from artists and music industry experts sharing their advice, tips and experiences.
If you prefer more in depth interviews with artists, and discussions on topics such as management, touring, and PR, our podcasts and blog are for you!
