In this industry, APPEARANCE IS PRACTICALLY EVERYTHING. Lasting impressions come from that first glance. You must get the DEMO CD/TAPE possible! Your DEMO is your business card. Remember, record companies will listen once to your DEMO, so you have only one chance to capture their interest. Professional recorded DEMO TAPES are very expensive, but you will not get very far without them.
It is your responsibility to select an agent which is right for you. You can do so by simply sending out your picture and resume to all the agents in your area. They will call you back and schedule an audition only if they are impressed with your picture. Every major city has well-established talent agencies. Contact a few different agencies and see what they say. The key to success is retaining an agent that is established and experienced! Ask for references and credentials before signing any contracts. We advise you to sign a non-exclusive 1-2 year contract with a local talent agency to make certain they perform their duties professionally.
