What is the FREE Music Report?
The FREE Music Report is sent free to radio stations, magazines, film & T.V.
productions companies and record companies. This report is not free to be
listed in. CD Register is the one and only way to get listed in this
exclusive report to the Music Industry. This "resource and publication" is supported by
the Bands & Artists who include their listing. Much work goes into the organization of this distributed
report, and every connection established out of trust and respect
for the music industry contact. The small fee covers business
expenses and small profit for time that goes into this. CD Register
allows Bands & Artists connect with the Music Industry in a way that
would not otherwise be possible.
services charge more than 20 times this amount (yes, really). Keep in
mind, this is by 3000 Records operated by musicians for musicians.
Huh, I still don't get this..What exactly is this about?
this is a service first of all. We provide a solution for
getting your music out there, to people in the music industry who
genuinely want your CD. Many Bands & Artists send their CD to
stations, record companies, etc... who never asked for it. This can
be a waste of time, money, and energy for everybody. On the other
hand.. The FREE Music Report is sent to the DJs, A & R people,
and other music biz contacts, and allows them to select only the CDs
they want. Each month they get a fresh selection of the newest music
available to them. This works for everybody! Hope that makes sense.
What styles of music are acceptable?
All music styles are acceptable! If you feel that
your music is appropriate for independent radio, magazines, film
& T.V., and record companies, then
you are welcome to sign up to get your CD into the right hands.
