Wondering how to get signed? Looking for jobs in the music industry? Look no further as the hard work has been done for you. Here is all the information that you will need to Contact A Major Record Label.

There are many music industry professionals working for record labels, music management companies, production companies and publishing companies that are looking for professional artists that can send a music demo package. This demo package must include a 3-5-song demo with the best most commercial and impressive song first. Many record label (A&R) and music managers will not get passed the first song if it does not catch their attention in the first 15 seconds. Your demo must also contain an 8×10 picture of you or your band, keep in mind that a sharper more professional picture will get a better response and increase your demos chances of being reviewed by the record label A&R, manager, producer or publisher. Don’t send a faded picture that you took with a disposable camera, these kinds of pictures are going to be extremely ineffective and I don’t recommend adding them to your demo package. Invest a little bit of money and hire a professional photographer to take your pictures.

Finally you will need an attractive story to go along with your sleek professional demo package. Ask yourself questions like why are you or your group so special? What do you have to offer musically?

Unsolicited demos – You must call the record label in advance to make them aware that you are sending them an unsolicited demo.
Solicited demos always get priority over unsolicited demos, So calling in advance will put your unsolicited demo a priority.

If you want to send your demos off with a HIT visit our Beat Store!
