graphic design in the music industry

Anyone out there have any idea how to get a foot in the door to do print and web work for the music industry?

Is the work done in house or contracted out?

Anyone know any design firms that do this type of work?

Thank you in advance

Most music labels seem to contract out. I never bothered to find out if any specialize in music, but I suppose there are.

I know a graphic designer that had JBL as a client. I saw some of the packaging graphics she did for them but I’m not sure if she did ALL of their graphic design.

I also used to hang out with a graphic designer that worked full time for Ernie Ball on their in-house design team.

I think it goes either way. As far as getting your foot in the door, I dunno.
