    SIGN THIS BAND? 🤷‍♂️ The Middle Room

    Should I sign this band???Band Interviews: The Middle Room
    This week on the Starting A Record Label Podcast we're conducting Band Interviews! I got to interview Pittsburgh's newest pop-punk band The Middle Room! If you haven't heard their new ep "Never Satisfied" on Spotify, check it out below! From the sound of it, they started the band and then immediately ran into the usual 2020 problems. But through it all, they managed to record and release several singles and an EP! I'm super excited to have more artists like t his on and even more excited to be moving forward again!
    Speaking of getting things done, I finally finished a huge video that I'm extremely excited about! It was 5 months in the making and I finally have my mixing/editing desk finished! Watch the finished product here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLCeGR5iQSc
