Meet Alexis Rodriguez and Sergio Galindo of Silver Gun Records in Echo Park

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alexis Rodriguez and Sergio Galindo.

Silver Gun Records was founded in 2016 by producer/engineers’ Alexis Rodriguez and Sergio Galindo. Initially a production house and recording studio, Silver Gun records began to take the shape of a Label when Alexis and Sergio started to support local independent artists by covering costs for production and partnering up to help them grow and develop their music careers. The label is comprised of international artists from places such as the USA, Lebanon, Russia, Mexico, and Kazakhstan.

“We were working with so many talented people that would come into the studio and spend all of their savings to record a couple of singles. They would leave SGR with great material but would not really have a team to support and help with a proper release. Together with the artists and their material, we work not only as producers but as a team of co-writers, session musicians, and management. Our library has grown exponentially, which has put us in a place to distribute and push the material towards other media like TV and Film Synchronization.” – Alexis Rodriguez, Producer

Today SGR operates as a boutique label with a carefully curated roster of artists. With the music industry going through a pivotal change and a complete new music business model making itself clearer everyday, SGR doesn’t perceive itself or operate as a traditional label. We strive to create meaningful relationships with our artists that start with a musical connection, a transparent work ethic, and the overall goal of working together as a team.

Has it been a smooth road?
One of the biggest challenges we face is the state at which the music industry is currently in. Making a living from selling your music does not work like it did in the past. Streaming and digital sales pay very little to artists. Costs for production and tools to make and record music are more accessible than ever these days, which creates a sea of content and media floating around the internet.

There is the challenge to stay afloat and stand out from the crowd. Staying up-to-date with technology, algorithms and new platforms to share your content is crucial for success.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Silver Gun Records story. Tell us more about the business.
The Label – Silver Gun Records is an independent record label based out of Los Angeles, California. We are comprised of a group of diverse artists and musicians from around the world. Our team features producers, singers, composers, audio engineers and filmmakers. In every collaboration, we seek professional musicianship, dynamic creativity, energy, and passion.

Production House – We offer a unique and intimate production experience that meets the needs of contemporary artists and producers alike. Our in-house team and recording studio brings out the very best of every artist that walks through our doors. We work in all areas of artist and project development from songwriting and production to mixing and mastering. Our goal is to always put out music of the highest quality that emotionally connects with people. We are most proud of the music we create, the artists we represent, and the great team we have built.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
We think that the future of the music industry will be in the hands of hardworking independent artists. The industry is currently going through massive changes for the better, which will hopefully generate more opportunities and income for artists, producers, and creatives in this field.
