The chance to get signed to CBM Records comes not as a contest or promotion, the label says.
CBM Records has had a great relationship with Reverbnation for some time, label owner Kimberly James said.
James and ReverbNation co-founder Lou Plaia met at music conferences and became friends. James said she respects and admires his support and love for the bands on their platform.
When approached by Plaia about doing A&R searches through the company and shown the new system they utilized, James said she was “all in.”
“It provides the label with amazing views of the artists, their music, their social footprints and much more,” James said. “A valuable asset in one place for a record label.”
One artist was signed as a result from the last search, James said, and artists in the Pop, Rock, Hip Hop, Alternative, Americana and Country genres are encouraged to submit over the next 60 days.
“Artists on the roster are expected to have integrity, a sound music business background, and the understanding that they will take part in the label business, cross-promote one another, tour together as well as write together,” CBM Records says on its application page.
Staff will review as many ReverbNation Press Kits as possible during the submission period. Bands should apply via reverbnation.com
