Band With a Mission is a leading independent A&R company that helps artists find a company to aid to your specific needs, whether you are looking for a label (indie or major), booking agent, management, publishing, recording studio, PR, etc. Band With a Mission does everything to prepare you, then pitch you.

Based on the success of Band With A Mission's Nashville event, the event is going global. 5 Canadian artists and 5 European artists will be selected for showcases in winter 2008:

Canada: January 12-16

Europe: February 9-13

These 5 artists in each market will be selected and the $599 (Canada) and $1,299 (Europe) standard showcase fees will be waived. The winners of each respective event will be flown to the U.S.A. over the next year to start working with the companies that fit the artist's business plan.

Band With a Mission is taking submissions of bands that are looking to be signed, and developed. Through partnerships with many entertainment companies, BWaM works as their development company since none of the majors want to spend any time or money developing new talent.
