Often considered the “extra band member who just deals with the business end,” 80/20 Records has represented Arizona local bands for the past eight years.
The local record label does something different than most labels, which is where its namesake comes from. While most labels only give 20 to 50 percent of the earnings to the band it represents, 80/20 Records takes 20 percent of the cut, leaving the bands the remaining 80 percent.
And it’s management style is a bit different too, according to 80/20 it works with bands to find a way to express themselves while lending them guidance.
