Does it cost me anything?

There are no set up costs whatsoever for starting a label on Aurovine. If you decide to release a physical product through Amazon or opt for worldwide digital distribution through itunes etc, there is a small set-up fee for each release (see below)

How do I pay my artists?

You get 86% from every sale. It is up to you to decide how much of this to your artists. Some labels offer 70-90% of their income to bands while others only offer 30% but spend a lot of time/money on promotion. It's entirely up to you but we'd suggest you have a standard contract set up with your artists. There is a template here that you can use. You can remove or add any clauses you agree on with your artists. It's always adviseable to get the contract checked out legally to cover yourself for every eventuality.
