What do I look for when taking on a new artist?
I regularly receive emails from new artists looking for representation and can understand it's a bit of a minefield with knowing exactly what information to send over. Here is a list of what I look for when considering a new artist...
Online presence and a good following. Include links to all the social media platforms that you use. Someone who has already been gigging around the UK and is building their audience. Tell me the venues/ festivals you've been playing, how was the audience?
Someone who can produce a plan for the year. This shows you have thought about how you are building your career and that you are organised.
I want to know what releases you have coming up and the plan behind it. Do you already have a PR company working on it? Is it already recorded and ready for me to listen to?
Send me links to your next release/ video (a private soundcloud link is fine).
Recent press on releases or shows (send me the links!)
Artists that are well organised, prompt with replying to emails and are good at keeping website/ socials updated.
Do you have management/ label already? (not a deal breaker!)
