Articles ( Information for Indie Artists and Entertainers) Label Attraction Lamont “ KDiddy” Patterson When I was asked to do an article on “What do labels look for when reviewing an artist or group” I had to ponder that for a moment, trying to decide how I wanted to approach this. So here goes. First of all labels aren’t in the business of losing money, therefore they’re not interested in a bad investment. “A bad investment is an artist or group that has not taken the time to learn the rules before trying to play the game”. (This is the music business not the music play). This a very exciting time for independents, the playing field has somewhat been leveled, artist or groups don’t need anyone to sell their music thanks to the internet. The artist or group needs to put their star player or players together, meaning you or your Brand . So many artists approach me with do you know where I can get a paying date or gig. I kinda laugh. My question is who’s going to hire you? Who’s going to pay, no one knows who you are! How are you going to bring people into some ones venue? My point is, it’s like approaching the opposite sex make yourself appealing. That’s your responsibility. Have your ISH together. Know you craft first. Is your music registered? Be a member of a performing rights organization like BMI, ASCAP, and SESAC. Have your pictures and Bio together preferably on flash drive. In other words have your package together. The more complete you are the more appealing you look to labels, producers, managers, agents, and please know the responsibilities of each of those mentioned above. I talk to a lot of artist that don’t know the difference between an investor and a manager. “WOW” And yet artist go out looking for a manager without having anything to manage. Educate yourself; the digital age is upon us. Continued on next page
What I look for in an artist or group: 1. ATTITUDE: If I can’t work with you it doesn’t matter how talented you are. 2. SHOWMANSHIP: Your talent and ability to ROCK the STAGE. 3. BUSINESS SAVY: Are you able to think outside of the box? Not expecting someone else to believe in their dream more than they do. 4. SELF MOTIVATED: Able and willing to utilize all the tools available to them. I.e. Social networking sites (Twitter, Ning, MySpace, FaceBook, Reverbnation, and Yahoo, Google or any others. That’s the artist or group I would be interested in. 5. Remember: Money only means something to those who don’t have it. It doesn’t mean anything to those people that do! My point is if you’re moving enough of your own product the right people will seek you out. Get your grind on “that’s my humble advice after 30 plus years in the BIZ.
