Record labels are accepting demos at this time! 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 listen passed the first song if it does not catch their attention. Your demo must also contain an 8x10 picture of you or your band. Keep in mind that a sharper and 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. Do not send a faded picture that you took with a disposable camera! These kinds of pictures are going to be extremely ineffective and I do not 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 professional demo package. Ask yourself questions such as; why are you or your group so special, what do you have to offer musically, and do you have any band reviews or magazine articles written about you or your band. Try and find any information relative to your music that you can add into your demo package such as emails from fans, show dates, etc. Your demo should also contain a biography that explains how and where you or your band began and how you got to where you are today. Your biography should be one page and capture the interest of the reader in the first paragraph. No one wants to read anything boring so create an exciting story, however keep it true. When I receive demos the first thing I notice is the delivery method of first class, priority mail, etc. which does make a difference. The second thing I notice is definitely the demos packaging, printing, artwork, and appearance. The music industry can be judgemental and will judge a book by its cover. Make sure to keep that in mind when you package your demo. If you are not willing to invest anything in yourself, what makes you think I will want to invest in you. When you are ready to send your demo package you should purchase some 8.5 x 11 padded envelopes. It is important to use the same packaging as the rest of the music industry. Now you've sent your demo to a manager or record label A&R that you have been dying to work with. What do you do now? Remember the saying "the squeaky wheel gets the grease". Well it is true, meaning you must follow up on the demo that you sent. There is a big difference between following up and being annoying, however. Wait a few days after you expect that your contact received the demo package and give them a call. Remember to be polite, to the point, and professional. A successful A&R, Manager, Producer or Publisher does not have any time to waste. sales director coming soon! ----------------------------------------------------------------------- OKAY WHAT I'M MARKING IS MUSIC INDUSTRY CONTACTS 60+ A&R CONTACTS TO MAJOR LABELS DEMOS CAN BE SENT TO A&R'S AND THE NAMES CONSIST OF EMINEM, DR.DRE.
