Jak się wkupić w łaski rynku?

Jak wszyscy wiemy, nagranie płyty jest sporym wyzwaniem, ale jeszcze większym jest jej sprzedaż.

Chcielibyśmy, aby zainteresowani wymieniali się tutaj radami, a nie wciąż narzekali jaki to rynek muzyczny w Polsce jest niesprawiedliwy.

  • Jak się wypromować
    Środa, 8 kwietnia 2009 (13:18)
    Proste pytanie, może i prosta odpowiedź ale jak jest z praktyką, dema rozesłane lecz wielkie wytwórnie milczą, radia odpisują oficjalne maile czasem tylko w jakiejś audycji puszczą twój kawałek i koniec. Ludzie z zewnątrz z niecierpliwością czekają kiedy będą mogli cię gdzieś usłyszeć, lecz wychodzi na to że jeszcze chwile będą musieli poczekać.Wielokrotnie ludzie z podziemia tworzą równie dobre rzeczy co popularni produceńci Gdzie tkwi problem ?

    Pod tym linkiem możecie zobaczyć co się dzieje z nadesłanymi demo do programu BBC 6 Radio.
    Proszą, aby nadsyłać im linki z muzyką, nie "fizyczne" albumy... To poczta z tygodnia do tylko jednego show:

    W Polsce na pewno wygląda to podobnie w rozgłośniach radiowych...

    Przyznam szczerze że kiedy puścili moje utwory w radiu były one przesłane pocztą internetową. I choć cieszy mnie ten fakt to dziwne jest dla mnie to iż puścili to w formacie w jakim otrzymali czyli mp3.

    Pod tym linkiem możecie zgłosić własną miuzę do BBC 6:
    Wystarczy nadesłać link do Waszego profilu z informacją który konkretnie kawałek chcecie zaproponowaći plus kilka danych.
    Dobrze mieć do tego profil na MySpace.
    Polecam, gdyż naszych podopiecznych grali, nawet byli w "Topach" i to bez kontraktów z wytwórniami.
    Jeśli miuza dobra, zagrają Was :)

    What are A&R People Looking For?
    By David Hooper

    I recently sat down with my database and contacted several A&R people
    for an article I was writing. I only had one main question, “What is it that
    gets your attention?”
    The responses were so good that I decided to publish every one of them
    in their entirety. What you see here is exactly what I got back either via
    email or heard via phone.
    Please note that literally hundreds of interviews took place and this
    appendix is one of many available. Visit for the
    latest downloads from this series as well as other series on what
    publishers, film supervisors, and music attorneys are looking for.
    I think you’ll find many of the results from my interviews surprising...and
    in a good way!
    A&R staff are often labeled as people who are only looking for sales
    figures and have real interest in the actual product. Is that true? Take a
    look at the verbatim comments below and judge for yourself!

    Virgin Records has established itself as a creative haven for artists through
    its reputation for developing and nurturing interesting, cutting-edge talent.
    When looking at potential signings, we not only consider the taste of the
    current market, but also whether or not an artist will develop successfully
    once the marketplace has evolved beyond current trends. While the current
    marketplace certainly dictates a high premium on image, we like to balance
    that with a real artistry and taste, and develop “career artists” as opposed to
    cashing in on the current trends.
    - Ray Cooper, Co-President, Virgin Records America

    Basically I listen to the songs looking for something compelling, hooky,
    lyrically touching or universally appealing. Obviously having the raw
    talent to convey those special elements of the song is a MAJOR plus. With
    the tremendous cost per artist (i.e.: advance, recording budget, marketing,
    tour support, video commitment, indie promotion and in some cases
    marketing etc...) of doing business these days has major labels looking to
    maximize their chance of success which is why things are so "research"
    driven these days. An artist creating a story (sales, radio play, sold out local
    shows etc...) is much more likely to attract the serious attention of a major
    label in this climate though true talent and apparent "hit" songs still count
    for a lot. - Leigh Lust, Director of A&R, Elektra Entertainment

    I think these days there are so many people out there trying to get the
    attention of various decision makers in the music industry. The waters are
    very muddy at this point and sometimes it's hard to figure out which way to
    throw my attention. Everyone has something to pitch--how much of it is
    really worthwhile to MCA Nashville and myself in the end? Anyone who's
    serious should either come recommended through someone I respect, or
    have a really good angle that's going to make me stand and take notice. Of
    course, incredible artistry and songs will rise to the top--that hasn't stopped
    happening. - Shane Barrett, Manager of A&R, MCA Nashville

    First off I have to become aware of the band. That could be through my own
    homework of reading record and live reviews, scanning radio play lists for
    their support of an unsigned band or a tip off from people I know and respect
    such as musicians, journalists, producers, friends in other labels, lawyers,
    managers, road crew etc etc. More often than not it will be a combination of
    both - I’ll read something about a band and their name will stick in my mind
    and chances are if I don’t follow it up then and there someone will mention
    them to me or I will read about them again somewhere else - very Celestine
    Upon listening to a tape for the first time I listen for something to draw me in
    - a great song or a unique voice, if I like it I will immediately track down the
    band to ask if they have any live dates coming up. Upon seeing them live for
    the first time again I need them to draw me in with their presence - my
    definition of a truly great performance is that the band should want to inspire
    you to start a band or join the very band you are watching.
    I truly don’t expect the band to be polished - just to find the raw talent in
    the band and their songwriting is enough.
    - Veronica Gretton, Director of A&R, Radioactive Records

    When auditioning an artist for potential signing I look for one thing basically:
    ORIGINALITY. Whether it's on a tape, CD, or 'live' performance - an original
    musical "voice" (meaning instrument as well) is the key essential.
    Compositional skills, live appeal, etc. are obviously important as well. There's
    no substitute for real musical talent. All the rest is marketing bullshit and
    hype. - Bruce Lundvall, President, Blue Note/Capital Records

    I don't need fancy packaging or elaborate demos. I listen for hits.
    - Shante Paige, Director of A&R, Motown/Universal

    What gets my attention is what I call “professional heart.” What I mean is,
    when an artist cares enough about his/her/their image and music that they
    know how to package their persona/look/performance/product in an
    authentic and comprehensive way (no matter what the style is) without
    too much or too little hype, I naturally get drawn in. Exuding confidence is at
    the core zen of this concept and yet there is no need to OVERsell. Personally,
    when I go through the multitudes of submissions at, I'll get really
    excited when I find an artist's FABULOUS website or STUNNING press kit and
    I'll get really bummed and kind of a low level of angry when their music is half
    baked. I feel gypped. Spend the production money on the MUSIC!!! I get a lot
    more excited about coming across great music that needs better packaging.
    By the same token,but the flip side of the coin, a blank cover with just a
    name is better than a bad home photo (unless the concept of the album is
    bad home photos and its not yours). I'm sorry to say, but I've gotten to the
    point where I won't even listen to a sound clip from a website that looks like
    a complete mess, or the photo choice is atrocious. I've wasted enough time
    venturing into sloppy sites where I gave the artist the benefit of the doubt
    only to be burned to trust my judgment. Also, WRITE CLEARLY AND PUT
    you if I can't reach you.
    And another pet peeve: In a press kit, CONDENSE and EDIT your press
    cuttings! Save your effort and money! We don't need 25 full length copied
    articles from the same hometown newspaper! We don't even need 25 full
    length articles of the most glowing articles from Rolling Stone! Excerpts and
    cut outs are fine. And for god's sake DO NOT send the original copy of an
    award you've received! And NEVER I mean NEVER make up an award or say
    that you've won something you haven't. Embellish and focus on praise
    you've received but don't lie. People know.
    And another thing, the worst thing you can do is harbor resentment at
    someone who says no. There are going to be a ton of “nos.” Frankly I'm
    baffled by how some of the music that is revered in today's world gets the
    acclaim it does, but always remember that art is 100% subjective. If YOU
    like it, it's good and chances are somewhere there is a whole group of
    people who will love it, and it may take a while to find them...Do not send out
    something to represent you that you yourself don't like however because
    that will just eat at you. - Mia Adams, Artist Development,

    We always consider if there is something else we have on our label that may
    be similar to the artist we are considering. We also look for artists and
    production companies that have the hunger to push for BDS spins or sales in
    their home town (backyard).
    - Tina M. Davis, Senior Vice President, Def Jam

    We are looking for great talent, charisma, vocal ability, songs and an intense
    ambition to succeed.
    Nothing grabs my attention more than a stand out song coupled with a great
    distinctive voice. - David Massey, Executive VP, Sony Music

    The main thing that I look for, is something fresh (not a clone of someone
    else). I look for "real" artistry....nothing contrived. I also, dig artists who are
    self contained, and are clever lyricists. In the Gospel market, it is critically
    important that outside of raw talent, that the artist truly has a ministry, and
    communicates this ministry with conviction and integrity. Your live concert
    presentation is also critically important in Gospel music. Image also has
    become increasingly important in Gospel music, so this area is also
    something that aspiring artists should pay attention to. The artist does not
    have to be a beauty queen/king, but should have a fresh sense of style.
    I believe in the old adage, that "real" artists cannot be created by a record
    company, either you just "have it" or you don't.
    - Tara Griggs-Magee, Vice-President, Verity Records

    I am looking for magic. First and foremost is the music great. Does the
    band/singer have their shit together. Are they in debt up to there ears. Do
    they really really want it. If they are selling cd's that's great. it doesn't always
    meant that the music is great. I have to really like the people in the band and
    want to work with them. and vice versa. also do i think i can really help them.
    everyone who works at aware has a total say in who we sign as well. also is
    it something we will be able to do well with at Columbia records. we want to
    succeed with every band we work with.
    - Gregg Latterman, President, Aware Records

    The one thing I always tell people when I'm asked or on panels, and it
    sounds, flip, but it's 1000% true is: be amazing. If you are truly amazing we
    will find you. There is no way, U2, REM, Smashing Pumpkins, Josh Rouse,
    etc., etc. would not get signed. If you are doing something that stands out
    you will get noticed - it doesn't matter if you're in NYC or in Bosnia. The net
    pun intended) is spread so wide at this point that you can really be
    anywhere and get noticed.
    Once you're noticed, what closes the deal for me is if you have a good
    infrastructure and if I'm not starting from scratch. It's very hard to
    take a band from zero sales to 20k-50k. Ideally, the artist/band has a
    constituency and fan base and has maybe self released a few records so they
    understand the business side a little. Basically, the more you bring to a label,
    the less the label can take from you.
    Last thing: take the damn shrink-wrap off the CDs before you submit
    them!!! - George Howard, A&R Manager, Rykodisc

    I simply like to release music that I like. In a demo, I don't care about sound
    quality or popularity/image of the musicians. I don't need pictures or bios---
    just a tape or CD. I give a listen to any music submitted to me.
    - Greg Ginn, President, SST Records

    Cutting Records is always looking for sales, image, songs, raw talent. More
    importantly we are looking a sound that is compatible to today's feel (but a
    touch of new sound) and making the artist with more unique than any other
    acts currently in the market.
    - Aldo Marin, Vice-President, Cutting Records, Inc.

    Nothing gets my attention faster than proven success. Many bands/artists
    show up with no experience at all. They are waiting for a record company to
    come along and make them famous. REAL artists/bands aren't waiting on
    anyone. They're out there making noise. That's what makes me take a
    second look. - Dean Diehl, Reunion/Provident Music Group

    What it takes to get my attention... I like artists who have a vision and who
    are unique. I look for musicians who are doing things that are somehow
    provocative or outside the mainstream. I look for artists who know who they
    are and know who their audience is. I like artists who don't care about what
    everybody else is doing and make the music that they feel. The ability to
    stand out in the marketplace is important to me. Currently I work with
    Queens of the Stone Age, Monster Magnet, Patty Griffin and Eleven. I think
    all of my artists have the above qualities and I'd like to find more who are
    just as important and captivating.
    What it takes to succeed in today's marketplace... I suppose that's
    something I grapple with everyday. It's all about connecting with the
    consumer on some level. Whether it's through a great song, a great record,
    a great video, a great live show. It helps if you have all of those things, but
    I'm not sure what the sure fire equation is, otherwise I would be a lot more
    successful! I don't think musicians should take into account the
    marketplace, I think they should make music that is real to them. Otherwise
    it's all formula and phony.
    - Debbie Southwood-Smith, A&R, Interscope/Universal Music

    First and foremost, I look for at least one standout quality that will separate
    an artist from the crowd. If this quality does not exist, the chances are that
    the artist will not “cut through the clutter” and will get lost in the vast
    numbers of new artists constantly being presented to the public every day. I
    apply the same criteria to all genres of music. Launching a new artist, if done
    correctly, is a very expensive undertaking for a record company and
    everything must be looked into in the evaluation process, instead of later in a
    Marketing meeting , to give your artist an edge over the competition.
    - Steve Lunt, VP A&R, Jive Records

    Jeśli ktoś tworzy muzykę klubową, polecam współpracę z Power Group z Wielkiej Brytanii:
    Wysyłają kawałek do najlepszych DJ'ów na świecie. Ci jeżeli im się numer spodoba puszczą to w klubie i przyślą artyście maila jakie są ich wrażenia oraz reakcje klubowiczów.
