Where To Find Record Labels Looking for Artists
There are few ways you can find these labels.
One way to find them would be to do a Google search.
Just go to Google or Bing and searching for terms like:
- record labels accepting demos
- pop labels accepting demos (swap pop for your genre)
- record label contacts
I think you get the idea.
Another way would be too look on LabelBase. It is a record label directory with a growing list of directories.
They have some A & R contact emails as well as links to social networks.
The one drawback to LabelBase is, they don't appear to have record labels for all the genres. You'll see genres like Techno, Hip Hop and various Rock genres but no country, folk or a bunch of others.
The Best Recording Labels Contacts List
The best way get a list of record label contacts, in my opinion, is the Indie Bible.
Aside from the fact that they've been around for over 20 plus years, they did one of the largest contact lists that is updated daily.
Remember that blurb at the beginning of the article about them having 970 record labels looking for demos?
Also, think of how much time you'll save when you don't have to hunting around on Google?
Worse, you might wasting your time because you don't have the most thorough and/or up-to-date information. What else could you be doing with the valuable time?
The Indie Bible will save you a ton of time.
