How can an A&R person help me get me signed to a record label?
Through their contact network they can help introduce you to a manager (if you don’t already have one), music producers and record labels. These steps are all very useful at getting your songs into shape to be heard by Record Company A&R’s. You only get a couple of chances to impress with your music so you’ve got to make sure you're 100% happy on what you’ve demoed. We also help setup label showcases to help get lot’s of labels to see an act in a short space of time.
How can they get my songs placed with already established artists?
Publishing A&R’s have a large network of contacts with managers and Record Company A&R’s and through these relationships they’re able to identify which artists are on the lookout for co-writes or songs.
How can they get me co-writing with artists?
Bucks Publishing hold regular songcamps in conjunction with major record labels and various Bucks artists/songwriters/producers are invited to attend in order to write for focus artists. Songs that aren’t placed from theses camps are pitched elsewhere for other label projects where suitable.
How do I know which artists are on the lookout for songs / co-writes?
The Bucks Publishing A&R team provide monthly Who’s Looking Lists which include information from Record labels around the world of artists that are on the lookout for songs / co-writes.
How can I get my songs pushed globally?
The A&R team constantly update signings/songs to it’s affiliates/A&R’s/Mgmt around the world on a weekly basis in order to look for song placement opportunities.
