Why does Big Shot Records offer such a broad array of benefits?
The basic reality is, most bands do not know how to acquire, manage or cannot afford the bulk of these vital services on their own. Most bands do not even have the basic necessary resources or support to create professional press kits, gain widespread publicity to get noticed, book shows outside of local clubs, produce high quality videos or record a well mastered album. Even if they find the money to actually get these basic things done, they don’t have the publishing, licensing or legal support necessary to ensure maximum royalties and protection for their music.
Artist membership is strictly by invitation. We constantly seek out new talent, either by search or inbound inquiry. We explore what bands might meet our requirements, then depending on what plan we think is appropriate for them, we offer that band or artist an invitation to sign with us:
