Teamwork Makes The Dream Work
Could the answer on how to get signed to a record label involve an emerging producer? Hmmm. Let’s consider this for sure. For as long as I can remember and every so often, someone tells me that their looking for investors to put out their music. These “investors” who I’m not quite sure really exist, outside of some illegal investor types that I can think of, are supposed to front all of the money you need to get a record deal. To be frank, I just don’t really believe in “investors.” Let me qualify this a bit more. I don’t believe that you’ll meet someone you have no personal or professional connection to, who will just write you a check for $250K just because you’re talented. Even if you think about the real life angel investors that do exist, I doubt they’d be looking to invest into an artists career. You find me one who did where that artist has a deal now and I’ll retract my statement and issue a correction. Until then, let’s continue.
There are several reasons why aligning yourself with a talented new producer might get you closer to landing that record deal. For starters, many music producers are smart. They are so smart, that many of them have great jobs. When you have a great job, you make good money. You may even make great money. What does this mean for you? Well, partnering with someone who can afford to invest in your music career is worth gold. On top of that, a newer producer can help you craft a unique sound. Bringing that uniqueness to the table may be what you need to get signed to a record label. A true music producer brings so much more to the table than a $10 lease beat off the internet. Would Macklemore be where he’s at today without Ryan Lewis? I seriously doubt it.
