The Easy Record Deal


The Ultimate Guide to Getting a Record Deal

It is the dream of every budding musician or singer to be able to say “I just got a record deal”. With a real record company, too. With a record deal come fame and fortune, credibility and validation. It is a hallmark of success when a company comes to you and says “We like your music enough to invest our money in you”. With a record deal you can find your songs in stores and hear them on the radio. You can be invited to perform on late night television, or get your videos on MTV. With a signed record deal in hand the world is your oyster and there are no longer any limitations on how far your craft can take you.

A record deal is your invitation to the big leagues, where you get to play with the big boys and girls, where you get to dress up and go to the Music Awards shows, and maybe actually be in the running. They are elusive pieces of paper from mysterious organizations, so hard to obtain, yet so many are awarded. And they will change your life. For better or worse? That’s up to you and how you go about it.

Do I Deserve a Record Deal?

You really need to look inwards and be realistic before you make this jump head on. Do you believe, truly, that you can do this? Do you have people (besides your mother) that love your music, who pay money to see you? Even a cover charge counts.

This is an art form for you. You love to create, to express yourself through your music, to write songs that either touch hearts, or get those toes tapping and hearts beating. All of that is great, and is an absolutely necessary component of success. But take a step back for a moment. A record company does not create music, get the fans jumping out of their seats only to run down to the music store and buy your cd. That’s on you to have the musical content that will excite the fans. The record company exists on the sales of your creations.
