Which music professional should I directly submit music to?

It is advisable to conduct adequate research before submitting to any A&R executive on AVENUEAR. Submitting a rap song to a country music executive could be unproductive, and you want to avoid such eventualities. Every A&R executive on AVENUEAR has a comprehensive bio that outlines the artists they have signed or discovered, as well as their preferred music and other relevant information. Take the time to review all available information to ensure that you submit your work to the appropriate executive who shares your musical interests and style. In doing so, you increase your chances of receiving constructive feedback and a positive response.

Is my music protected from labels stealing it?

At AVENUEAR, we are committed to protecting your material to the best of our ability. We want to assure you that you own the rights to your material, and we have secure servers and agreements in place with our executives. We carefully select the best executives in the industry, who have outstanding reputations, and we do not allow just anyone to access our platform. We understand your concerns about submitting music and potential theft of your material. However, please note that as soon as you record your music, your music and lyrics are protected by copyright law. To ensure maximum protection and the ability to take legal action if necessary, we strongly advise registering your material with the U.S. Copyright Office. Copyright registration is available via the Library of Congress, and we recommend this practice to safeguard your works.

What to do if an industry professional on AVENUEAR reaches out to offer a deal?

When someone reaches out to you via email or phone, it indicates that their interest in your work has been piqued. Such contact may arise for numerous reasons, such as an executive wanting to license your song for an artist already signed with them. This is a great opportunity and a promising sign of your talent. As a writer, you may find greater financial success than a performing artist. Keep in mind that maintaining a professional and courteous demeanor will enhance the likelihood of positive outcomes for your career.

What if I get an offer from a record label, publisher or music supervisor?

If an offer from a record label, publisher, or music supervisor becomes available to you, it is important to approach the situation with a level of professionalism. Take some time to carefully evaluate the offer, considering factors such as the potential for exposure, financial compensation, and the terms of the agreement. It may be helpful to seek advice from an experienced music attorney or industry professional before making any final decisions. Ultimately, it is important to ensure that any agreement aligns with your goals as an artist and provides you with fair and equitable compensation for your work. With a thoughtful and professional approach, you can navigate the complexities of the music industry and make informed decisions that will benefit your career in the long run.

What do I need to know about the music industry to make it a career?

To establish a career in the music industry, one should acquire knowledge regarding industry practices, current trends, and networking skills, among other valuable attributes. To start, it may be helpful to research music industry events and organizations such as conferences, networking groups, or trade magazines that can offer insight on industry contacts and opportunities. Attending shows and performances to make connections and observe music industry professionals in action can also be valuable. Understanding the creative, business, marketing and financial sides of the industry is key to success. Finally, it is important to be prepared to work hard and maintain a professional attitude, taking advantage of every opportunity to develop skills and gain experience.
