We are all very aware that the current state of the music industry is a disaster.  Even as the big corporations fall apart they are trying to hold on to the old record label model that just is not feasible anymore.  This has opened the door for small record labels to step inside the music world and actually stay on their own terms.  A good example is our recent discovery of Better Daze Records.

The company was founded by the writing team Paul Barrere and Roger Cole, with the idea that it would be nice to have a company where creation, imagination and quality could be the only guidelines that had to be followed.  Their writing style is unique and produces quality songs but reaching the major labels with it was a pipe dream.  They are both industry veterans and know the hard work that goes into getting music noticed but now they do it on their own terms which is more satisfying than anything.  The Better Daze motto is “Music for the sake of Music” which they live by and welcome in other artists that share in their ideals.

The latest release by Cole and Barrere is the aptly titled “Who’s Right”.  The soft vocal style and mellow melody bring back memories of a simpler time in music.  The mix is very welcoming and provides the feeling that the duo is playing the song only for you.  It stays very catchy as they show off their talent in both songwriting and instrumentation.  Enjoy the song for yourself here:
