2020 has been a challenging year for the music industry – live music events have been put on hold, and recording music has become all the more challenging with coronavirus restrictions in place.
Still, that hasn't stopped indie label Careless from putting out new material, and after a lot of hard work, they launched Wildest Dreams, the debut album of one of their artists, Nadine Lustre.
The album and its accompanying visual album was released in October, and has had quite the reception since – a sign of great things to come for Careless.
In this interview, Careless President James Reid, CEO Jeffrey Oh, and A&R Bret Jackson speak to Rappler about how they pulled off recording and producing the album, and what it's like running a music label in challenging times.
They also give a glimpse of what's to come for the label and its roster of artists.
