ROCK, HIP-HOP, COUNTRY, FOLK, EDM, INDIE ROCK, ALT ROCK, CELTIC PUNK, It Doesn’t Matter! We're LOOKING for PERFORMERS from ALL GENRES! It's About TALENT, COMMITMENT and MATCHING UP PERFECTLY with a SONG, NOT GENRE!
"Trying to find just the right song for a vocalist just starting their career just seems like a genius idea! I'm kind of surprised nobody thought of this before!" - Join Christina Justin / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
OUR SEARCH for TALENT Includes ACCEPTING UNSOLICITED DEMOS, But FOCUSES On WORKING With REGISTERED ARTISTS and CREATING LEGENDS! SERIOUSLY That's OUR MISSION!
As A REGISTERED ARTIST YOU Can AUDITION Our NEW SONGS EVERYDAY and SEND Us YOUR SONGS and DEMOS and GET FEEDBACK and EVALUATION Of EVERY SUBMISSION!
“Well the more I looked into history of bands, the more I realized that a lot of great songs are musical accidents! But good accidents! You really have to do a lot of different things and have a lot of bad accidents before you can expect to have a good accident! Maybe this will be a good accident!” - Join Dylan Sperry / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
Like Other Record Labels, that ACCEPT UNSOLICITED DEMOS, We’ll Listen to Your Demos, as We get a Chance (record labels often get 100,000’s of demos a year) and We’ll Get Back to You, IF We are Interested. But Only If We Are Interested!
UNFORTUNATELY, We Won't Be Able to Give You Feedback on Why We Aren't Currently Interested in Your Music and What You Could Do To Get Us Interested in Recording and Representing You, UNLESS YOU REGISTER AS AN ARTIST WITH US!
SENDING US UNSOLICITED DEMOS is A Totally Legitimate Option, IF YOU Already Produce a Lot of Quality Original Material and Have Demonstrated It, To Yourself and the World, by Having Tens of Thousands of Followers on Social Media and Regularly Playing Sold Out Regional Gigs, BASED ON YOUR ORIGINAL MATERIAL!
“I hate to admit it, but a lot of times it just as much about the producer as the band. I don’t necessarily like it, but it really feels like the way it is and we can’t afford a big time producer even if there was one around here!” - Join Jacob Reynolds / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
If You Haven’t Achieved Any Real Success with Your Original Songs Yet, Consider REGISTERING AS AN ARTIST with US! Especially If You Think Your Vocals, Songwriting, or Musical Performances (Or All Three) Could Benefit from Industry Critiques and Feedback and Not Just the Input of Friends and Family!
The Most Important Benefit of Registering with Us, Is That It Opens a Line of Communication That Allows Us to Start A CONSTRUCTIVE CONVERSATION With You ABOUT YOUR MUSIC! A Conversation That Will Hopefully Continue a Long Time!
“I thought becoming a legend sounded much better than being a barista the rest of my life and hey even if it doesn’t work out at least I can say I gave it a real shot!” - Join Josh Weathers / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
Whether You Are Engaging Us as a SONGWRITER,SOLO ARTIST, BAND or All of Them, the Feedback We Give You Will be With One Goal in Mind! To WRITE, PRODUCE and RELEASE MUSIC for FANS THAT ISN'T JUST ALRIGHT, but that Creates an Almost Magnetic Attraction in Listeners!
WE WON'T WASTE YOUR TIME with Idle, Generalized, Theoretical Talk about Songs and Performances, ONLY SPECIFIC, DIRECT INPUT about What We Think it Will Take to WRITE, PRODUCE, and RELEASE MEMORABLE MUSIC with YOU!
“I’ve kind of romanticized the whole making it to the top [of the music industry] thing. But I’ve kind of realized that you need a break or some help or something along the way to make it. The more you read and find out about it, the more it feels that way!" - Join Grace Williamson / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
REGISTER AS AN ARTIST and as a VOCALIST, You Can Audition NEW SONGS for Us Every Day on Your iPhone or Android, Whether by Yourself A Cappella, Accompanying Yourself on Guitar or Piano, or with Your Entire Band! VOCALISTS, AUDITION NEW SONGS ON YOUR PHONE!
“I’m scared my voice is getting a little too perfect in a way. A way that sounds to much like other singers. I just want to try to find a few songs that I can kind of make uniquely my own while I still feel a little bit unique!” - Join Brooke MacKenzie / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
REGISTER AS AN ARTIST and as a SONGWRITER, You Can Get Immediate Critiques on Your Songs as Well as an Opportunity to Collaborate with Songwriters on Our Staff! You Can Send Us Complete Songs or Just Lyrics or Instrumentals! SONGWRITERS, SEND US YOUR SONGS!
"I know this a little bit like buying a lottery ticket, but at least it’s a lottery ticket for songwriters. I’ll have a lot more control than I do over regular lottery tickets and this will keep me motivated to write!” - Join Jeremy Connors / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
REGISTER AS AN ARTIST and as a SOLO ARTIST or BAND, Even if You Haven’t Been Getting Any Useful Feedback or Critiques on Your Submissions to Record Labels or Posts on YouTube, Instagram, SoundCloud, ReverbNation, etc., We Guarantee that We’ll Give You Straightforward Feedback! SOLO ARTISTS and BANDS, SEND US YOUR DEMOS-As A Registered Artist!
“You can try and pretend that you can produce a track just like a professional producer in L.A. or Nashville, but you are just kidding yourself most the time, unless you’re talking something pretty simple. I just want somebody to buy into one of my songs and then arrange and produce it, at least kind of how I hear it in my head!” - Join Matt Piercy / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
IMAGINE Waking Up to Lyrical Phrases to New Songs in Your Mailbox (as a registered artist, you’ll be on our corporate online network), Work on a Melody for Your Favorite Phrase at Lunch, then Record an A Cappella Version on Your Phone After Work In Your Car!
Push a Couple of Buttons and Send it to One of Our Staffers Who Sees it Minutes Later and Goes “HOLY #!@*)&!!*#”! And Texts You about Their Excitement!
But Now You Don’t Have to Imagine Something Like That, it could Happen Every Day! And One Day a Staffer could Call You to Say that We Want to Send a Production Truck Out to Your Place, so We can Record the Vocal Track to a Couple of Songs with You!
“I know they [Epigram Records] are going to break a few people big with this idea of matching up that right person with the right song and I want to be one of those people!” - Join Rachel Young / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
IMAGINE Finishing Work on that Song of Yours that Sounds half Father John Misty, half Ed Sheeran- Kind of Strange, but Beautiful! Since You Know for Sure that If You Sang the Release Version of the Song, It would go Absolutely Nowhere, You Send it to Us! Just a Lyric Sheet and a Rough Demo from Your Phone!
You Move on to Your Next Song. Then three weeks later, We Get Back to You with Ten Short Auditions from Other Registered Artists! One of the Vocalists is almost Exactly What You Had in Mind! You go “HOLY #!@*)&!!*# Epigram is Really Getting Stuff Done!”
“Spending a year or two as a registered artist just seems like the easiest, least expensive way to really find out if I can make it as a singer or songwriter or both!” - Join Haley Jordan / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
IMAGINE You and Your Band Submit a Demo to Us. THE FIRST SHOCKING THING that Happens is that YOU ACTUALLY HEAR BACK FROM US!
The Second is that Not Only Do You Hear Back, but YOU GET USABLE FEEDBACK about the Timing of Certain Sections of Your Song (i.e. an intro that is too long for an unestablished artist, yes the rules are different depending who you are) and some Take It or Leave It Changes, to Correct for Violations of “LYRIC LOGIC”! You Decide to Integrate the Changes Because You Feel They Really Do Make the Song Better!
The THIRD SHOCKING THING Happens when about 5 weeks Later, You Make Some More Changes to Your Song and Submit Them to Us and a Couple of Days Later We Get Back to You and Say WE WANT TO RECORD and RELEASE YOUR SONG!
“Hey I and everyone else in the band is getting tired of sending our demos into a black hole! Never hearing back or getting any input! We’re looking forward to getting an evaluation on everything we send in, including some of their songs, so we can start really moving forward!” - Join Michael Bowie / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
Are Any of These Things GUARANTEED to Happen? Absolutely Not! But One Thing is Absolutely Sure, Wonderful Events Like These are Only Going to Happen to VOCALISTS and SONGWRITERS, SOLO ARTISTS and BANDS that are REGISTERED With US! Because We Are the Only Record Label that is Doing Things in a Way that Allows Things Like These to Happen! THE WAY YOU DO THINGS MATTERS!
“This is a great idea! I know I can sing, but I can’t play anything and I don’t really have anybody to accompany me or a band to work with so this is really about the only way I’d be able to see if can make it in music!” - Join Lauren Benjamin / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
Out of All the Options to be Discovered as a Performing Artist Out There, Such as - ReverbNation, SoundCloud, Taxi (and all the other independent A&R companies), YouTube, Instagram, International Songwriting Competition (and all the other songwriting competitions) etc. - We Are the Only Ones that Will Actually PUT OUR MONEY WHERE OUR MOUTH IS and PRODUCE and RELEASE YOUR MUSIC, As Soon As We Start Making Great Music Together!
“It’s great having a co-writer or collaborator on every song, especially when you are just getting started! Sometimes they can see things, not even that big, that can make all the difference!” - Join Victoria Christiansen / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
If YOU are Serious about a Music Career, We Think You Owe it to Yourself to Carefully Consider Epigram Records, When You are Looking at YOUR OPTIONS for Furthering Your Music Career!
We Feel that, this is Doubly True, if You are A Lone VOCALIST or SONGWRITER, as We Are The Only Record Label We are aware of, that is Doing Anything Remotely Like This for Artists Like YOU!
“What I really like about this is that I can do some auditions of their songs and send in some songs on my own, plus send in demos with my band and see which way this is all going to get some traction!” - Join Zack Hoffner / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
Either Way, Whether You SUBMIT UNSOLICTED DEMOS to US or REGISTER AS AN ARTIST WITH US, We Look Forward to Making Great Music with YOU! - the Staff at Epigram Records
