THE TALENT SCOUT CONNECT MUSIC SHOPPING -MARKETING PROGRAM

Talent Scout Connect is Committed to providing you with access to a broad selection of opportunities to further your career in the music industry. It is becoming increasingly difficult to secure a major label deal. To be frank, in today's marketplace, most labels are more concerned with the research numbers connected to your music than your ability to rock a crowd. They are more interested in your song catalog and your ability to develop a fan base beyond a showcase as evidenced by BDS spins and Sound scan sales.

Obviously, you must work to develop a fan base. But, you must ask yourself the following questions:

Do you have the tremendous amount of resources needed to build a national buzz through radio airplay and sound scan sales? Are you affiliated with a clique or organization that is already signed with a major? Are you co-signed by a platinum producer or top notch mix-tape DJ?

If the answer is no, then the best avenue you have to get a deal is to develop a local buzz and build solid relationships with music industry insiders. You must get on the radar with the A&R's, marketing reps, radio promoters, etc. The music business is all about relationships!

Our Network of music industry insiders enables us to offer you the opportunity to have your music heard, reviewed, and considered for a deal by Top major label decision makers. Our entire purpose is to find, develop and place talented unsigned artists, songwriters and producers with the most renowned record and publishing companies in the world. We provide you with direct access to our network, which consists of some of the most influential names in the music business. Most major labels do not accept unsolicited material. However, with the vast relationships we have developed over the years, we can assist in getting your music heard and considered for a deal.

Major and independent record labels and music publishers use Talent Scout Connect as a source for finding new repertoire. You will get an opportunity to submit your music to major and independent record labels,

Shopping your music requires "connected" industry insiders who are willing to devote time in setting up and following up meetings with A&R's, Producers and Industry Executives
