Artist Talent Booking Agents - How to Get Signed

For years I've watched and listened as potential hit artists would make their pitch with little aim or direction.  Not knowing the ins and the outs of the industry or what they were really asking.  As a former talent booking agent for William Morris Endeavor, I can tell you that the vast majority of artists who need and want an agent, don't have a clue as to how to go about obtaining one.  So how does it all go down? Whenever I look at an act there a number of things that enter the equation, but the biggest one and this is true for any potential booking agent, is "what's in it for me?"  This is not necessarily a selfish question, but a question of reality.  How many acts can I possibly take on where I'm grasping at straws trying to sell the act to a potential club owner.  Let's look at potential club date so you understand the big picture of the job that an agent has to fill day in and day out.  Read more

Make Money Singing

You’ve been thinking about it for a while, but you’re just not sure how much time, money and emotional expense you want to invest in your singing career.  You’re sure you’ve got the talent or you wouldn’t even be deliberating the opportunity, but still the question remains.  With so many so called “experts” all willing to take your money for some service of some kind, where do you begin to embark upon your singing dream? Certainly if “so and so” can make it in the music business, I certainly should have a chance as well - Or do you? As a former talent booking agent with the William Morris Agency and jingle singer singing many commercials such as FOX TV, UPN and O’Charley’s, and as president of ReelMusician, I’ve had the unusual opportunity to visit with many individuals, just like yourself, looking to enter the music industry from one angle or another.  Let’s take a few minutes to explore some ideas and concepts that might help to further your career.  Read More

Singing Gigs and Session Work

We’ve all made the comment, “How did so and so ever make it as a singer?”  As a former talent booking agent with the William Morris Agency, we were also amazed at times.  At best it was a guessing game of who we would sign and wouldn’t – it was more of a speculative stock market approach, than a science.  Yet that is how the music industry is and remains for a number of reasons. As a singer, trying to break into the music industry, even as a session singer with no real aspiration of signing an artist deal, it can be tough – But it is doable and with real talent and drive you can make it.  One of the most appealing aspects to session singers is that it does in fact take talent if you’re in it for the long haul, making it feasible to break into the market.  Think about it - If session singing does in fact take talent, that takes away a lot of individuals who think they have the talent, but really don’t and therefore leaves room for individuals who can deliver the singing goods when called upon.  That fact alone is assuring for singers making a real attempt at breaking in.  Read more
