Many artists dream of the day when they will be signed to a record label, especially a major label. What do they need to make this happen? First, talent and hard work; connections never hurt; and a showcase before an A&R consultant.
If you’re at this level, then the Arizona Booking and A&R Showcase is a viable opportunity to push your career forward. In April 2020, we will be hosting this event featuring Loren Israel, A&R consultant to major labels, including Sony Music and Capitol Records, to name a few. As in any showcase, participating artists will perform, hopeful that they have the “stuff” that Loren is looking for. Also present for this showcase will be a booking agent who will review performances and book those artists they prefer for local PAID gigs.
Whether the answer is yes or no, Loren will be offering constructive advice on how to improve and raise talent to the level needed for a record label signing. He is also a multi-platinum producer for such bands as Plain White T’s, Jimmy Eat World and Neon Trees. In addition, he has represented Cold Play, Less Than Jake and most recently The Unlikely Candidates who are #1 on the Adult Alternative Chart. There is a $150 registration fee with all net proceeds donated to Rock the Dream.
If interested in registering for this Booking and A&R Showcase, email firstname.lastname@example.org. There are 10 spots available.
UPDATE MARCH 20, 2020: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Rock the Dream has postponed this event until further notice.
