The major labels have already passed on you. They won't work with someone who thinks they can do everything themselves when they have zero (0) experience or connections.
Back in my teens when I was apprenticing with some very seasoned veterans, I asked, "What's different about the artists that succeed?" The answer was, "The people who let themselves be manipulated the most are the most successful."
Success in this biz requires a fanatical focus on the essence of what makes you unique, and complete welcoming of the contributions of others that don't detract from that essence. You have to give up control of everything else or you are going nowhere. Sorry to bring truth upon you...
