*** ADVICE FOR UNSIGNED BANDS *** If you're an unsigned band looking to take the next step, please consider the below.We urge you to play shows, build an audience locally and do something different.Get some music online - get it on Spotify and graft. Monthly listeners and followers are important.If you can't be different... do something better than everyone else. Be better than everyone else. Quality speaks. If you are sending home recordings/half finished demos that 'could be better', is that a great representation of your band? Get great at social media. Get great at playlisting - Spotify and Apple Music. Get a manager when the time is right. Someone who can truly add value. Be a band with a vision and be ready to prove you've got the work ethic.When you've done that... you might well be a band that a label wants to sign.
