Frequently Asked Questions about Submission of Demos

Q

I want a record deal, can I send you my demo?

A

Ah, if only life were that simple – Seriously though, Perry Road Records has an open submissions policy from artists living in the UK. That means you can send us demos without calling to ask permission first. We promise to listen to everything we receive (although it may take a while).

Q

What kind of music do you accept?

A

Our main genre is Blues and Rock, but don’t let that put you off, we would certainly not disregard any genres. We encourage artists to send us demos, knowing that lots of very talented musicians have trouble getting their music released and that music fans (like us) are always interested in discovering another great album.

If it has something ‘real’ to say we will listen to it.

Q

What should I send?

A

A CD with at least 3 songs, a current photo, contact info and any other info you feel may be relevant such as a bio, video, etc... (basically a Promo Pack). If you wish to send a link for online site (myspace/facebook/web, etc) for visual purposes and general info, re tours/gigs that’s fine, we will certainly check out your site. But; Please Note: We do not accept MP3 and links to online sites as demos.

Q

What if I don't have a demo?

A

No problem. Go stand in the shower (with clothes please), record yourself singing, if you’re a band that’s probably not the best venue but the principle is the same. If you can’t get into a studio that’s fine it’s you we’re listening to, we have a first rate Producer/Engineer on our A&R team who possess the ability to hear what is actually you and what is down to good production.

Q

I sent you my demo, why haven't you responded!!!

A

Perry Road Records receives numerous demos, each one by somebody looking for that chance, we feel it only fair therefore that the A&R team allow sufficient time to listen to all the demos. Time is set aside for this purpose, the team get together in the Studio and listen to your demo.

It may seem like an age, but please be assured we will respond. Should you wish us to return your demo/promo pack after listening, we would ask that you include a stamped, self-addressed envelope.

Q

What happens if you like my demo and want to sign me?

A

Don’t worry, you’ll be the first to know!

If we feel we would like to discuss your material further, we would invite you to attend an audition at our recording studios where you would have the opportunity to spend some time with our Producer/Engineer and members of the A&R team.
