Carefully and meet all of the criteria.
No out-of-town calls. This is for New York City.
No second party calls. Artists must call for themselves.
I am a major label producer, artist developer,
Artist manager, A&R consultant, private studio owner and
Independent record company president with distribution through Sony Entertainment
And twenty-seven other venues world-wide.
I am a virtuoso guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter.
I have over 40 years industry experience and I am a former Columbia Records recording artist.
Executives from A&M Records, Paramount, Atlantic Records, Disney, B.M.G./R.C.A.
As well as Major entertainment lawyers submit artists to produce and develop.
That does not mean that I accept them!
Most are not accepted for various reasons.
Life is too short to do anything my heart is not into for even half a second!
I am looking for an artist good enough to spec who is up to major label industry standard.
To date I have reviewed and passed on the demos of over 3,000 artists.
No one seems to realize how high the industry standards are for a major label.
You must live, eat, breathe and shit music,
Sing, compose and practice hours and hours daily.
Do your work. Arrive early for all business appointments and recording sessions.
Return business calls promptly and on time.
Write current industry standard radio hit songs and be \\\"ready to go\\\" with all that entails.
Nothing else in your life should be more important than your music!
Nothing else in your life should take more of your time than your music!
I am not running a business so please do not call for rates.
I am not for hire, nor is my studio.
I will not work with an artist just because they pay.
True artists are \\\"made out of the right stuff\\\".
They have legs that will walk towards the future.
If you are talented enough, skilled enough,
Work hard enough, have major label skills and I like
You and what you do I will spec you.
If you do not know what \\\"spec\\\" means ask me.
You can\\\'t apply for something if you don\\\'t know what it is.
Absolutely no rap! Absolutely no metal!
My Artists and my work can be heard on my website:
I wrote or co-wrote all the songs.
I produced and played all of the instruments except for the drums.
Please listen on good quality headphones or good quality speakers,
Not earbuds and certainly not computer speakers!
Several of my current artists have major label interest or a deal pending.
Contact information can be found on my website.
Please speak clearly when leaving your phone number.
Do not call if you have not listened to my artists first!
No cell calls if possible, most of the cell phone messages are unintelligible.
If you have a website, leave the address.
I will review your music before I call you back.
It\\\'s o.k. For you to call if you just want artist development or career counseling advice,
I gladly extend this courtesy to anyone who asks for free!
I\\\'m always glad to help out starting artists.
We all have to start somewhere.
