WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR WHEN TAKING A NEW ARTIST ON?
WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR WHEN TAKING A NEW ARTIST ON? We are looking back over what we look at when taking new artists on to our roster here at Beating Hearts We 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 we look for when considering a new artist...
Online presence and a good following. Include links to all the social media platforms that you use.
Artists who has already been gigging around the UK and is building their audience. Tell me the venues/ festivals you've been playing.
Artists who can produce a plan for the year ahead. This shows you have thought about how you are building your career and that you are organised.
We would like 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 us to listen to right now?
Send us links to your next release/ video (a private soundcloud link is totally fine).
Recent press on releases or shows (send the links)
Artists that are well organised, prompt with replying to emails and are good at keeping website/ socials updated with regular content.
Do you have management/ label already?
Are you proactive at promoting your upcoming shows? We've had with artists not fulfilling their responsibilities after committing to shows recently so we want to make sure that you are doing everything you can to make sure shows are a success.
Anything else you feel would catch our attention! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.
