Dealing With Difficult Record Labels
Not all record labels are made equal, and some are going to be more challenging to work with than others. Trying to deal with these professionals is going to be a significant challenge unless you know how to handle them properly and can work with these individuals in a way that benefits everyone.
First of all, you need to try to find someone who has your best needs in mind in the company. They can support you against difficult people in the label and serve as a boost when you need it. Just as importantly, you need to use them to talk to the label simply and effectively.
Lastly, you may want to consider changing record labels if they end up getting too fussy with you. This situation can be very difficult if you're legally bound to them, so you need to make sure that you aren't going to get sued if you do try to leave the label.
