Good episode? Give it some love!
Key Take Aways:

  • Artistic development should be an integral part of management

  • There is still a lot of value in a label, provided the label is aligned correctly with you, believes in your vision, and will work hard for you. Distribution is not part of that

  • Your project has to be 100% of the way there before pitching it to a label. Demos don't count

  • Spend plenty of time in research to make sure you are reaching out to the right person

  • When a label is looking at you, they are going to make sure your social networks are up to date, your bio is good, you have a continuous visual style, and are already well on your way

  • The overall online presentation is a good indicator of grit

  • Get a pro SoundCloud account. It's important

  • Don't put playlists in your SoundCloud Spotlight

  • Make sure all your content is on every platform, and funnel it all wherever you want (iTunes, website, email opt-in, etc)

  • It's important that you continually put out content, so that people are continually reminded about you
