How to Approach Record Labels

We get this question a lot on how to get signed to a record label or specifically with us. So we wanted to break down some methods on how to approach labels! First, why do you want to get signed to a record label? Make sure your intentions are clear and for the right reasons. Having a label just “take over the business side of things” is not the right reason. If anything, partnering with a label will mean more work for everyone to achieve the goals both have laid out. Second, labels have to be very selective on who they sign and when. It’s an investment and we take that very seriously for both ourselves and the artist. Out of all the years we’ve serviced artists we have only signed ONE from a submission. The rest have been through prior relationships we have built with the artists. Sometimes the best way is to find other avenues to connect with a label to build that relationship. You will find there’s a number of options that you can support each other with, even if you’re not signed to them. Here’s a list specifically with 80/20 Records but can apply to any label. Follow on social media and any other mediums. We do notice who engages with us on our platforms and this is an excellent way to understand the ecosystem of the label. Follow us on instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn, facebook. Apply for an internship. Many labels have internship programs, this will give you an inside look on how they operate and build connections within the company. Check out our internship...

Faun Flora releases new single ‘See You At The Funeral’

We’re proud to release Faun Flora’s latest single ‘See You At The Funeral’. This song details the relationship between the listener and a loved one who they value dearly. The lyrics focus on death as a theme but with the bridge reinstating any love and relationship you experience exists beyond any life and dimension. You can listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, TIDAL, and others. LISTEN HERE —Press Release— PHOENIX, AZ | OCT 29th, 2021 – Synth pop artist Faun Flora has released her new single “See You At The Funeral,” out on all digital streaming platforms NOW. Faun Flora’s artistic perspective on synth pop is an atmospheric delight. Written during an emotional state of grief, “See You At The Funeral” explores the idea of death and relationships using the concept of funerals being a rite of passage. Through the songwriting process, Faun wanted to add a perspective that makes the listener view funerals as a portal to an outer experience that can only exist within. Toying with distinct ideas of both darkness and light, “See You At The Funeral” is a strong showing of Faun Flora’s artistry. About the single, she states: Written in July 2020 and recorded in June 2021, “See You At The Funeral” details the relationship between the listener and a loved one who they value dearly. The lyrics focus on death as a theme but with the bridge reinstating any love and relationship you experience exists beyond any life and dimension. The song shows more of an intimate side of my production, differing from the pop-based sound from the first EP “In...

Gabe Kubanda releases single ‘Back on Track’

Gabe Kubanda releases single ‘Back on Track’

Recorded during the pandemic, Gabe used Soundbetter to find a demo track that eventually led to this bouncy single. We’re so proud to release ‘Back on Track’. LISTEN HERE —Press Release— Recorded during the pandemic, ‘Back on Track’ is about picking ourselves up, making changes in our lives, and the importance of honoring family and keeping loved-ones close especially in trying times. Co-Produced by Devon Quartullo, mixed by Matt Keller (The Maine), and mastered by Mike Marsh (Calvin Harris). Dispirited by studios being inaccessible during lockdown and tours being cancelled, Gabe looked to new avenues for inspiration. This landed him on a “rough demo track that just sounded really cool” on SoundBetter that instantly led to writing melodic and lyric ideas around it. After reaching out to the demo creator Nick Ray, who was excited about this prospect, it led to this collaboration with Gabe’s prior producer Devon (Dancing on the Edge). Gabe has recently released ‘HomeFi’, a lofi chill EP, recorded and self-produced in his home during the pandemic. To celebrate, Gabe livestreamed a listening party on YouTube while painting, something Gabe has never done before. Gabe continues to make an impact with his non-profit EduMusication, providing music and music business education to schools across the country. In addition to conducting webinars for distance-learning music students, EduMusication provided gear and equipment such as midi-keyboards, beat-pads, interfaces, microphones and headphones through their retail...
