Hey guys, I'm new to the site. I've browsed the forums before when google searches took me here, but this is my first time posting, so sorry if this is the wrong board for the topic.
Anyway, i'm an independent musician taking a shot at some solo work. I've got a Pesonus USB Audiobox, some mics, and some instruments. I've been doing some recordngs of covers, mostly for recreational purposes, but i'm getting to the point of recording my own music. Basically what i'm looking for is advice on how to share and post that music.
My idea was that i shoot for a real album or EP sort of collection i should get a few rough recordings posted, so i can learn both what my recordings need and how to post them. I've got three songs currently planned for the "Demo" (im calling it a demo for lack of a better term) and a soundcloud account. I'm hoping to have all three recordings finished relatively soon, maybe posting them before February is finished.
So my questions would be these:
What should i consider before posting these songs?
Where should i post them? Soundloud, bandcamp?
Are there any legal procedures i should go through to protect my original works, even in this early stage?
Is three songs i good size for this project?
Anything else im missing?
Thanks for reading and answering, and agian sorry if i posted this in the wrong spot.
