I am an independent musician. Do you think it is worth starting a record label for your own work these days? Is the CD a dead format?

I don’t think it’s worth starting a label for just one artist, you can distribute your music without that. As for formats, downloads suit most peoples requirements these days but there are collectors who want to own a product, so it depends on the type of audience you appeal to and whether or not a physical product is something you personally want to offer. If you’re starting out then the cd format isn’t going to be particularly cost effective for you, but once you have a following that option opens up.
