* The 5 Least Known Most Successful Places To Submit Your Music - For most artists, bands & music producers, getting a licensing deal (a.k.a. “placement”) is much more attainable than getting a record deal. In fact, music licensing is a $20 billion industry and the demand for music from independent musicians, artists, bands & music producers (like you) for TV, film, commercials and video games is growing.

* The 5 Least Known Most Successful Places To Submit Your Music
one of my songs I say, “I Produced cut throat cats for years, so in the hood I get respect, the only jewelry I wear is a cross around my neck, so check my steeze, it’s about downloads, so fuck CD's homie please, I flow tight and my rhymes is DOPE man, the sicker the flow man, the thicker the smoke, I’m no joke how I come with it, give it if I got it, spit it, how I live it, man forget it if you about bitches”. I give away three singles to all of my fans as a thank you for tuning into my art because at the end of the day I’m just a writer and music producer that loves music just as much as anybody else and I’m just thankful that I don’t have to sell my music to make a living. In 2001 my music made enough money so I could invest in my own online company called Mix Makers, then I used that revenue to start a Mixing & Music Mastering Company called Ryan Clement Mastering in 2003 so I could make quality work affordable for the average artist, band or music producer. Thankfully, I don’t have to make a living off of my independent music, I make music anyways for the love it. It’s the best hobby in the world and I started very young. I’ve been writing songs, singing and rapping since I was 10 years old because my baby sitter listened to “NWA” and “Too Short” records. When I was 13 years old I received a cheap Casio keyboard for Christmas and by then time I was 17 I could program an MPC 2000 with a midi keyboard and 6 sound modules. I used the first Fruity Loops, Reason and Pro-Tools HD, I can mix and master a song in any genre better then almost anybody on planet and I will give you a free 2 minute sample of one of your songs mastered to show my audio mastering quality. Please only ask for a free sample if your serious we are busy here at Mix Makers and Ryan Clement Mastering. I give away the first verse and first hook of all 21 of the songs on my new double album as one file called True To This 21 Singles. The file is available for instant download load at any one of my thousand independent artist websites. I have so many singles that I have to promote a little bit of each one all at once and I’m so proud of this album that I cried after listening to the final mastered version in my studio located in Burbank California. I’m just trying to give fans and music lovers what they want so anyone that wants to listen to my music can download three of my top singles anytime at one of my numerous independent artist websites. Now its my companies turn to pay the bills and allow me to do what I love all the time for my true fans without the stress and bullshit that comes along with management, major record labels and the top music distributors. I’m all about independent music artists, bands and music producers and I will continue to do my part to help make high quality music industry related products and services affordable for the average artist. My mastering company will make your songs sound better then anything the majors are putting out guaranteed. I don’t care if you come at us with an mp3 we will make that shit sound DOPE. A couple months ago I found an old song on a scratched CD that I wrote and produced when I was only 16 years old called Situations, the quality was sub par because it was 1996 and again I was only 16 and recorded and mixed the song myself in my first half ass recording studio in my room at my mom’s house. Anyway I made the song sound so good and since the content was still relevant and Situations was still un-released I decided to include it on my new double album called Ryan Clement AKA. Riveechi “True To This”. Actually I’m going to make Situations available for free right away so anybody can download it at http://riveechi.hearnow.com. Situations is a special song to me because the other artist that wrote and performed the first verse and hook for me died of a drug overdose a few years ago so this is my way of keeping his name alive. I will give the royalties generated from sales revenue, publishing and money from TV and Film projects to his mother. I’m going to make it a point to put a little money towards promoting Situations because if “Crooked” was alive I would hope he would do that shit for me and my family. On the same note I also have a song that I recently recorded called Living In Darkness which is going to be one of the top three singles that I’m going to give away for free at my plethora of independent music websites. Well, the artist that recorded the hook and second verse for me also died of a heroin overdose and it wasn’t that long ago. His name was Brian Glance AKA. “Budah”. He was a hell of a good rapper and close friend. I’m going to heavily promote Living In Darkness as well and give Brian’s mom all the sales revenue. She deserves it for putting up with our late night music production and free style sessions in her living room at 3 o clock in the morning. I remember us making a beat with fruity loops on her computer in like 1999 and she was proud of me for just trying to give her son hobby. Even then I knew it was more then a hobby. Budah believed in my company and everything I was trying to do for rappers in my neighborhood let alone independent artists all over the world. I would like to think he is proud of me for keeping the dream alive. My god I’m crying a little bit right now. I’m a real person, artist and music producer, my music is meant to entertain and bring my character and personality to music. I also like it when people listen to my music and say wait a minute rewind the song, what did you just say? Dope! Obviously don’t need anyone to tell me how to write and produce real music that resonates with people who just like well written and produced songs. I also record, mix and master all of my music at home where I’m comfortable. I like to take my time so I can feel every note, that way I can vibe and write lyrics that go right along with the beat and melody. I call my music real California Hip Hop.
Now you have written a great song, made an awesome demo so now you will be rich and famous, right. Well, it is possible but I highly doubt it. There is not a doubt that being an amazing singer/songwriter, rapper, music producer, or musician that has a perfectly mixed and mastered version of all your songs is a great strategy in and of it. However, if you are engaged in having your music see the light of day by music industry contacts, your career is really just starting. While businesses like Mix Makers who publishes All Music Industry Contacts do a delightful job of helping you get your songs out in into the world, it is still totally up to you to be sure your music gets into the right hands. Until the music industry contacts who can essentially do something with your tunes, music industry contacts like record label A&R, music producers, music managers and music publishers) have listened to it, it might as well not exist. I understand that this sounds apparent although I believe you would be stunned at the amount of singer/songwriters rappers, music producers and musicians out there who has an impressive demo that very few, if any, music industry contacts people have ever heard. Creating the songs is one thing but getting your songs out there into the world requires a unique set of skills. The talents you should be focusing on are professionalism, networking, persistence; I will say again persistence, courtesy, and patience.
Like any industry, it is not only what you know it is also who you know which can get you ahead in music. What this means in the music industry is getting yourself out there to music industry events, open micas, writer’s nights and any form of promotion you can find. For those of you that live in cities where music industry contacts are more likely to be like New York, Nashville and Los Angeles, there is an just about an endless stream of opportunities to meet successful music contacts. For everybody else, you may have to gaze a little harder or take a trip from time to time to one of the cities I just pointed out. I think it is a common fact that this kind of thing is not that much fun consistently however, when you are first starting out it is necessary. Let’s put it this way: All things being equivalent, if you’ve ever met music industry contacts from a record company or music publishing company in a social situation and assuming you had a pleasant exchange, there’s a much larger possibility that they’ll not only consider you when you call but will make more of an attempt to help you out if they can. The point is that the more you get in contact with music industry contacts that work in the music industry, the more contacts you will encounter and the better the chance it will pay back down the road. I also suggest remembering a few key social skills while you are at it. Do not instantaneously launch into your 10-minute, spoken-word biography. It is a much better idea to find out a little something about the music contact you are chatting with by remembering to ask them a few questions as well.
Did I forget mention we are talking about the music industry? This means it is in your utmost interest to be proficient about how you go forward with music industry contacts in the business. When approaching someone in the music business, email or call first. Make the first contact brief and to the point. In other words, let them understand why you are calling/emailing (e.g., to schedule a meeting, to see if they are accepting music at this time, to ask whether you can submit a link to your website or an mp3, etc.). This is not the time to have a long conversation. If somebody has referred you that they know (see “networking” above), bring this up as well. In addition, while it is cool to be thrilled and even confident about your material, it hardly ever pays to tell somebody that you have a “killer” song or you are a “dope” singer/songwriter. Let your melody speak for itself. Once you have gotten authorization to do so, then submit your website link or bring it to the meeting. It truly doe's not make sense to send out CDs or mp3s without first getting approval from music industry contacts, as they usually end up at the bottom of the trash or, even better, the person who has not asked for it considers it and disturbance. Do not kill the messenger here; I am just saying that the odds are that if someone is not expecting your material, there is a good chance it will not be heard.
By the way, if you have never seen the office of an a&r rep or music publisher, I am here to tell you that it is wall-to-wall CDs. We’re talking hundreds and hundreds if not thousands of them. Make sure that your CD is clearly labeled with a few simple elements: your name and contact information (phone and email), the name of the song or songs and possibly — if it’s a song for an artist — the name of the person you’re pitching it to. Also, make certain that every part of the package is labeled. This means putting your information on the CD and on the CD sleeve or jewel case. Make sure that if the CD itself gets separated from the case, the information is the CD, too. Also, if you’re using a jewel case, make sure there’s information on the spine. Remember the part where I said there are thousands of CDs in these folks’ offices? When your CD ends up on a shelf with all the others, the spine of the CD will be the only way for them to identify it. Finally, I can think of no good reason why any submission should be more than three songs. If you’re pitching a song to an artist, they’re not hoping for a “bonus track.” If you’re pitching to a publisher, three songs is a good way to show them you’ve got more than one good song without overdoing it. If they want more, believe me, they’ll ask. It all comes down to putting yourself in the position of the industry person. If they’ve got a desk full of CDs to listen to and have to choose between a CD with two songs on it or one with 19 songs, which one do you think they’ll pick?
Let’s say you’re fortunate enough to reach someone by either phone or email and they’ve agreed to let you mail in a CD or email them an mp3. Here’s what you should expect: Nothing. In other words, it’s extremely rare that you’ll hear anything back quickly after you submit it. As a matter of fact, you should put in your calendar to follow up two or three weeks after you’ve submitted something. This follow-up should be even shorter than your initial contact. Email is probably best for this. A simple email saying you wanted to make sure they’d received your submission is enough. Also, don’t be surprised if the response you get back (if you’re lucky enough to get one) says they haven’t gotten it and would you mind resending it. Resending material is something that you should expect to do. Following up every two to three weeks (unless you’re asked not to) is perfectly acceptable if you’re polite and to the point. I’m not a cynic and I don’t believe that anyone has an agenda to ignore submitted material. I’m a realist and the sheer number of submissions makes it almost impossible for anyone to stay on top of things. Anything you can do to help remind someone is in your best interest and generally appreciated.
I think it’s important to realize that no one in the industry owes you anything. This may sound harsh but it’s an important point. You may very well have great songs and it would be in the best interest of the industry professional you’re pursuing to listen to them, but there are a lot of great songs out there and only a limited number of opportunities for them. If your song isn’t listened to right away or even if it’s lost or ignored, don’t take it personally. I’m a songwriter myself so I know exactly how important your songs are to you. It’s not easy to submit them for judgment and tougher still to wait around hoping someone will actually listen. However, you’ll only do yourself a disservice by being rude or impatient with someone and heaven help you if you get a reputation in the industry for being difficult or unpleasant.
Given that there are so many artists, songwriters and songs out there vying for a limited number of spots, it all comes down to patience — patience with yourself as you improve your musical skills and patience with the industry people you’re soliciting as they make their way through all of the material in line ahead of you. My recommendation is to have as many irons in the fire as you possibly can at all times so that you are not waiting for any one thing to happen or not to happen, as is so often the case. The more people you get to know, the more opportunities you explore and the more submissions you make, the less likely you are to get discouraged and the more likely you are to start having success.
When a Record Label A&R, Music Manager, Music Publisher or Music Producers states that they only accept solicited material, this means that you need to ask permission to send a package. Simply mailing them your demo & promotional material in high hopes that they will listen to your music is sometimes likely to be successful, although this strategy has worked for some artists in the past, making contact with your intended music industry professional & making sure that they are expecting your package seriously increases your chances of being heard. It is also important to get professional Audio Mastering by a professional before sending your CD to A&R reps. You should definitely make contact with Music Record Labels A&R People that accept unsolicited material to make sure that they will be expecting your package. You should always call first before submitting your material. This will ensure that your package will get priority over another unsolicited package. It is part of the A&R assistants job to listen to Demos, check emails and receive faxes for the A&R that they work for. Your Demo should be 3-5 songs, make sure that you include your greatest material with the best song first. You want your music to grab an A&R Reps attention in the first 15 seconds. music industry contacts!
You don't have to be a famous music mogul to be solicited. When speaking with A&R Reps, Music Managers, Music Publishers, Music Producers, Music Managers, Music Agents, Music Supervisors, Radio Stations and Music Attorneys you must be extremely professional even when you are speaking with an Assistant, Secretary or Executive Assistant. These Music Industry Professionals are responsible for filtering out calls from amateurs. The important thing is to build a relationship with everyone you come in contact with especially people that are lower on the food chain, just show everyone respect. Find out the names of everyone that you come in contact with. Ask them questions like who they have worked with in the past & what styles or genres of music they prefer. It is much better to pinpoint A&R Reps, Music Agents, Music Managers, Music Supervisors, Music Publishers, Radio Stations and Music Attorneys that work in your Genre or style of music. Don't waste your efforts! Always be ready to explain who you are, what you are doing to further your music career and what separates you as an artist or your band from the rest of the musicians out there.
If you have a music website with some music clips & mp3 player a Music Manager, Music Managers, A&R Reps, Music Agents, Music Supervisors, Music Publishers, Radio Stations, Music Attorneys & Record Labels will tend to listen to what you have to say and usually will check out your music website and listen to your best songs. Don't ever call a record label like a rookie & start telling them that you are platinum or a star or whatever. These days the most important thing an artist can have is a music website or artist, band or music producer website. We wrote an extensive section in All Music Industry Contacts Plus that explains exactly how to build your music website for little or no money. When calling Music Managers, A&R Reps, Music Agents, Music Supervisors, Music Publishers, Radio Stations, Music Attorneys & Record Labels it is extremely important to make friends with executive assistants, secretaries & receptionists. Ask them if they will accept your email, visit your music website & listen to your music. You may even be doing them a favor by entertaining them for a few minutes. Remember that some people who work at Record Labels or Music Management Companies are just doing a job & sometimes don’t get the money or respect that they deserve. Try & light up their day with your upbeat personality. If you want to be in the music industry you must be able to handle rejection as well. music industry contacts!
If I get negative results or feedback when trying to speak with someone in the music industry it only makes me more persistent & determined to prove to them that I am significant. Don't be astonished if people are rude or a little hard to deal with, this is the music business. Sometimes you may have to kill them with kindness & be as polite as possible when speaking with Music Managers, A&R Reps, Music Agents, Music Supervisors, Music Publishers, Radio Stations, Music Attorneys & Record Labels. At least if they hear your name & listen to a few of your tunes you made a new music contact in the music industry. When an executive assistant answers the phone you should already know what you are going to say to him/her. Don't sound anxious or be overly aggressive when speaking with your targeted music industry contact. Think of the executive assistants, receptionists & secretaries as a filter. all music industry contacts!
The warning no unsolicited material is usually used so that record labels don't get swamped with demos or music submissions, although if you have a music website you can easily send them an email with a link to your music being played natively so that they don't have to visit another page to listen to your music so you should have a built in .mp3 player on your music website programmed to play 2-3 of your best songs, best first obviously. Its not that Music Managers, A&R Reps, Music Agents, Music Attorneys, Music Supervisors, Music Publishers, Radio Stations & Record Labels don't want to listen to new material because they do. Its more like they don't have the time to listen to everything that comes across their desk. If a record label hasn't heard of you yet, you should always give them a call first unless you are contacting them via email, then all you have to do is make sure that your email is catered to that specific individual. When your music is solicited it gets priority over something that is not solicited. This doesn't necessarily mean that music contacts are not going to listen to your music at all, it just means that you have to get creative. Most Music Agents, Music Supervisors, Music Publishers, Radio Stations, Music Managers, A&R Reps, Music Attorneys & Music Record Labels have people that listen to unsolicited material for them. It is usually an Executive Assistant A&R Scout or one or more of their many Interns. Other music industry contacts or music companies may throw unsolicited material away or send it back to you that's why you need to have your own music website or custom designed artist, band or music producer website. It is a known fact that a lot of huge artists where discovered by someone listening to unsolicited material. music industry contacts!
A&R Reps, Music Agents, Radio Stations, Music Supervisors, Music Managers, Music Publishers, Music Attorneys & Record Labels get a good number of demo packages each day and that's why we include the email address of all music professionals in our All Music Industry Contacts Download. When you call them to let them know that you are going to send demo package, ask them for some kind of code that you can write on the package so that they know it is solicited and you have permission to send your package. I am not going to say that this is standard practice by most record labels anymore but they will still do it. Another great way to ensure that your package will get reviewed is to have a messenger deliver it. I know it is expensive so only use this tactic when your odds are good. Only use this strategy when your intended target music industry contact is looking for an artist, band or music producer with your characteristics. These days with the advance in technology the best way to shop your music to targeted music industry contacts including Music Supervisors, Music Managers, Music Publishers, A&R Reps, Music Agents, Radio Stations, Music Attorneys & Record Labels is to send out one detailed email that is specific to the music industry contacts that you intend to email and include a link to your custom music website that contains a built in .Mp3 and or video player. Sending out mass emails or emailing more then one music industry professional at a time may backfire because people know the difference between Spam and a targeted message intended only for them. all music industry contacts!
