“I don’t think anybody I listen to, went to music school, they just kind of do it. It’s really like this emotional connection, you either have it or you don’t!” - Join Olivia Marshall / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!

“You know they’re right [Epigram Records] about one thing, a record company has a lot more incentive to ride our ass and get something out of us, than ReverbNation or any of those other places that are just stroking us to keep us signed up.” - Join Beth Whitney / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!

“The way I understand it is that, they [Epigram Records] are looking for unique voices as much, or more, than like “perfect” voices and that is how I’ve always imagined myself. Not perfect [laughs].” - Join Isabella Jackson / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
As these Lyrical Phrases Come to You, it might not be Immediately Apparent to You What is Going On, but Rest Assured that We are Analyzing All of the Performances You and other Vocalists Send Us, in a Relentless Effort to Match Every Performer with Just the Right Song!
We’ll Even have Songwriters Following Performers that they Find to be Particularly Powerful or Unique, so that they can Work on Writing a Song or Two Especially for that Performer! A PERFORMER THAT COULD BE YOU!
“Playing small venues is sometimes kind of a good time and good practice and sometimes you even make some money, but there’s know way you’re getting “discovered” around here! At least this way [with Epigram Records] you’re kind of partially discovered.” - Join Oliver Owen / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
But No Matter What, AS A REGISTERED ARTIST, You’ll Receive a Monthly Evaluation from Us, to Let You Know How You are Doing Relative to other Performers (we might even show you what some other vocalists are doing if we think it would help)!

Hopefully, sooner rather than later, We’ll Find a Song You Match Up With and get together on Recording a Release Version of that Song.
To Capture Your Vocals, We’ll either send our Mobile Production Truck to Your House, meet You at a Recording Studio by Your Place, have You come out to Work with Us, or if You have a Studio at Your Place and want to do it, We’ll Try It that Way!
On the First Song We Do with You We’ll Cover All the Production Costs! Once You Release Your First Song with Us, We Can Start Talking Contract or Whatever - but hey, One Thing at a Time!
“I knew this girl that like, well actually her parents, spent $5,000 on an “agent” and a “professional” video that got like three views on YouTube and people are getting all butt hurt about $285 bucks for a year of real input from people that really do it and that will produce you up for nothing, if you do something that doesn’t suck?” - Join Blake Parker / EPIGRAM Registered Artist!
