How to Get Your Music Heard by Local Record Labels

If you want to get your music heard by local record labels, there are some steps that you can take to increase your chances of having this happen. If you dream of becoming a singer or musician, you may be frantically trying to get discovered. One of the things that you should be working toward is making a demo and getting it heard. While that might not easy to do, it's not impossible. However, it will require some effort on your part, and in the end, it will all be worth it.


Garner Interest in Your Music

Long before you submit your demo to a label, you'll want to gain fans and interest in your music. You do this by playing as much as you can.

  • Play in local bars and clubs.

  • Offer to play at fundraisers.

  • Play at parties if given the opportunity.

The more people see and hear you, the better. Not only will you be getting your name out there, but you'll be gaining valuable experience, which will only make you better. When you play local community events, you are also earning goodwill throughout the community, and this could be helpful at some point.
