The Knowledge to Succeed

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


How To Get A Record deal is for anyone interested in being part of the music industry and wants to know more about how to get signed to a record label, what it takes to stand out in today's music environment, the types of record deals that exist today, the differences between an independent record label and a major label, what labels look for in an artist, the current state of the urban music business, and how to build an incredible buzz. Talent is not enough to attract a record deal. Sending music to record labels isn't enough to get a deal. Having a great connection in the industry is not enough to get a record deal. Yet these things are what artists do everyday thinking it will get them signed to a record label so they can become a star. How To Get A Record Deal dispels the myths and explains in a factual manner how to attract a record label interested in helping the artist succeed. Remember, getting signed to a label isn't the goal for any artist--creating a successful and long lasting career is the goal. Getting signed to a label is just one possible step along the path to achieving that goal. This book was written by Wendy Day from Rap Coalition who has shopped, found, and negotiated some of the best deals in urban music. How To Get A Record Deal is written for artists and non-artists who just want to learn more about the music industry and how it REALLY works.

Customer Reviews

Great Book

If you are reading this review and think you're going to get a record deal from it DO NOT READ!

That's not a bad thing neither. All I'm saying is this isn't a quick fix book. This book gives inside information on how the industry work and causes you to shift your paradigm on how the industry really is.

Lots of useful information!
