MANY OF YOU HAVE ASKED FOR A LIST OF WHOM TO CONTACT AT THE VARIOUS RECORD COMPANIES TO GET A DEAL. SO HERE IT IS:

 

WE STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU PUT TOGETHER A PROFESSIONAL PRESENTATION. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THESE A&R PEOPLE GET THOUSANDS OF DEMO'S, MOST OF THEM ORIGINAL MATERIAL OF A VERY HIGH QUALITY! DO NOT SEND THEM HOMEMADE SONGS THAT YOU RECORDED ON YOUR 4 TRACK MACHINE, OR COVERS OF A HIT YOU DID AT A KAREOKE BAR. DO NOT PUT "HAPPY FACES" ON THE ENVELOPE. KEEP IT PROFESSIONAL. THEY WANT TO HEAR FINISHED PRODUCT, NOT ALOT OF EXCUSES THAT IF YOU HAD A MILLION DOLLARS YOU COULD DO A GREAT RECORD! (IF YOU HAD A MILLION DOLLARS, YOU WOULD NOT NEED TO DO A RECORD!) PLEASE DO NOT WASTE THEIR TIME AND YOURS! DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. (when you make it big, remember your friends at SEI Corp! Remember your friends period! Good Luck.

FOR AN UPDATED VERSION OF THIS LIST, SIMPLY BUY A BACK ISSUE OF MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE. IT HAS UPDATED A&R CONTACTS.
