|Question: how do I send my Demo to a label company?and how do you know wich one is|
|Nors Music's response:|
Your question isn?t easy to answer. Things has changed a lot in music industry (and the global echonomical situation too) With new ways of shoping music, as MP3 direct sales ( Itunes, MSN Music, etc) or selling through your own web site, maybe you don?t need a Record Label to start your career as a musician. Also, you must think that there are big differences if you?re a solo artist or a band, and the style counts too, isn?t the same for classical musician than for a grunge band :).
Trying to answering you, let?s imagine you?re a solo R&B/ Pop singer, the most popular genres these days, well, as a start you need good material, so, or you?re a songwriter too or you?ll need to hire one. Then you?ll need a band or someone with keyboards and machines to perform the songs ( maybe the songwriter can do both things). At this point, when you have your songs, my advice is to try to book the more shows you can, this will be useful because this way you can test the songs for real, and if you?re really good, you can increase the number of fans.
After booking and playing a considerable number of shows, you?ll notice that people will start asking for your recorded music, so you can go to a studio and record your songs and with a little investment in print and covers you can have your own CD ready to be sold in your shows. This can bring you some extra money and more people will know about your music.
If things go well, in a year or so ( all depends on your talent and the quality of your material of course) you can have a growing fan database and for sure you?ll capt the attention of major record labels and music media ( radios, magazines, TV etc).
I hope this answer your question, keep on working on your music, you can do it of you work hard!
