Of course, the more labels you reach out to, the better your odds are of finding one who is interested in your music.
Q: Which track should I include with my demo?

Q: Record labels are so pre-internet. Why would I want to be on one?
A: Record labels still play an important role in the music industry, especially when it comes to music discovery. It’s very helpful to link up with a label that provides support for you and what you’re doing. There are many advantages to being on a label, one of the most important of which is to help you reach and cultivate a wider fan base.
Q: How long does it take for these record labels to respond to my submission?
A: That depends on the record label. Like different songs, BPMs will vary. Usually, you’ll get an auto response to your message. That’s standard practice. The label may then take days or weeks to respond to your submission. Instead of waiting around for a response from a label, use that time to be productive and create more music. Remember, you aren’t the only one sending music to the label.
Q: What do I write in a music submission?
A: Who you are, your influences, any notable accomplishments. Keep it brief, direct, professional, and let the music do the heavy lifting. Here’s an example of a well-written demo submission. Here’s a good example
