MUSIC LABELS COME TO US
We created a website that allows music companies to find you. Yes, all major and independent labels can search NARD's database at no cost to find artists from around the globe to sign to their roster. Record labels (major and independent), publishers and music supervisors navigate through the NARD database to find great talent. They also look for hit songs, instrumentals and tracks for TV and film placements. NARD makes it easy for the companies and YOU!
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
Once you sign up with NARD and complete your profile, our A&R team of highly trained industry professionals will carefully screen your profile: listen to each song, access your video(s), view your photo gallery, read your bio and etc. Then, you will be rated from one (1) star to five (5) stars where one (1) star is the lowest rating and five (5) stars is the highest. This rating system will allow companies to find the best talent in NARD's database in minutes. A specialist from our A&R team will give you written feedback in your profile.
You can rest assure, we match each A&R expert with the genre of music he/she specialize in to give you a true and professional rating.
ONCE YOUR MUSIC IS RATED
Once your music is professionally rated, companies will view your profile to determine if they want to sign you or are interested in your artistry. If you are rated four (4) or five (5) stars, you will have an excellent opportunity to be recognized and, hopefully, signed. Remember, there are thousands of entertainment companies that frequently search NARD's database looking for undeniable talent. If you are rated three (3) stars, you are in the middle and may have some work to do, but some companies still may make you an offer. Don't be discouraged if your rating is not where you think it should be. Continue to strive for perfection.
MUSIC IS NOT UP TO PAR
You will never know where your music stands until you get it in the hands of an expert that understands music and music industry. If your music or production is not quite ready, our A&R professionals will give you written feedback regarding your artistry. So, if you are rated a one (1) star or two (2) stars, you have work to do, but it is not the end of the road. Take this opportunity to listen to our A&R professionals, go back to your lab and come back swinging. You can be re-rated after 30 days.
If an entertainment company/record label loves what they hear and/or see, they will contact you directly. Some companies may want to 'Make a Deal.' It is important to have a working phone number and email address. Also, keep an attorney close by to help negotiate a deal. You can find entertainment attorneys and management companies on the NARD website.
