The second time they used our Tip Sheet, they received requests from Def Jam, Columbia and Epic Records!

*How does the Special Edition Tip Sheet work?

All auditions are listened to carefully. We are very serious about your music. Each artist receives our full attention and your EPK will be listened to many times prior to making a decision.

AMG works exclusively with Sonicbids, so all 12 artists or bands will are reserved for Sonicbids artists. We are looking for the best of the best. Ultimately, we think the most important part of your audition is your music. Artists and/or bands that have great songs are encouraged to apply as the radio stream makes your song instantly heard by the music industry. In addition to your great music, we are looking for those artists who tour, have great reviews, or an interesting biography. We are looking for accomplishments that will set you apart from other artists/bands. We want to hear your music even if you are new to the industry! Give it a shot!

*How is the Tip Sheet distributed?

We do not use bulk mail. Our email system is designed to use software that sends each email one at a time so the tip-sheet will not be blocked. We do not spam. Every

A & R Representative has chosen to receive our Tip Sheet.

*What happens if I get a request for my demo?

Should an A & R rep from a major label or an independent label request your demo, you will be contacted immediately via email or phone. This is what we call a "direct solicitation." When a record label asks for your demo...It is the best kind of solicitation you can receive. You will need to overnight your demo and a photo for each direct solicitation you receive. We will write your cover letter, bio, press sheet and one-sheet. Your demo will be packaged professionally with our solicitation code to the label that requested it. We will forward the name of the A & R rep as well as the complete contact information for your records. If you have management, your manager may send the demo instead.

*I have more questions, who can I contact?
