This seems like as good a thread as any to reach people who might not have seen this already.

Over on my label blog - http://fallenloverecords.tumblr.com/ - I've been interviewing various indiepop label owners about their experiences. Each interview mostly follows the same line of questioning about things like how they started, their production processes, how the digital revolution affects their work, highs, lows, how they sell and promote, and personal philosophies.

So far I've had the pleasure of speaking to the men behind:
Cloudberry Records
EardrumsPop
Happy Happy Birthday To Me Records
Lost Sound Tapes
Odd Box Records

I contacted another 14 labels that I was hoping to speak to but those failed to get back to me so, for the time being, my little interview series might be done. Regardless, I think the results are pretty interesting! We've got 5 pop labels from different parts of the world, active for different lengths of time. Reading the interviews back to back and comparing their struggles and successes I find compelling. I hope you will too.

weePOP! was a great label (run by a lady) and Soft Power is at least partly run by a lady.

(no slight on the fallen love, I don't know many labels ran by women)
not really here

I definitely agree. I didn't really know much about the people behind the labels until I started researching for my interviews. I was hoping at least one woman would cross my path so that I could get their thoughts on the matter. Labels like K and Eardrums and Shelflife have women involved higher up but even those three were all founded initially by men.
