    on the street That s what gets our attention and directs us It s important to build a buzz You should do what you have to do to get your music heard If you believe in what you re doing and have any talent eventually you ll get results We also do research to find out who is doing what and get in touch with acts to see what s up Should artists contact major label executives directly If I were an artist I wouldn t go after the major executives I d want them to come to me You should use all your resources let your music touch people and get a response out of them Then build on that Do those things and labels will come to you When the buzz gets loud enough we ll check you out What important lessons should artists learn Artists should learn how to take constructive criticism and use it in the right way They should enjoy the journey and understand that some decisions are made or not made due to timing If they get passed on they need to know that it s not always about them or their music Sometimes the time just isn t right for the label or A R rep to make a decision And artists should realize that luck is often part of the process What qualities do you look for in artists I like acts that are unique and have their own perspective I like artists that are passionate and work hard on their careers A good work ethic is important to me because when you get signed to a major label you re going to work one thousand times harder Would you develop an act It depends Major labels generally prefer artists that have their act together and are pretty much developed However if I absolutely love what the artist is doing I might take a chance and work with them How important is an act s live performance It can make or break a deal It s important for artists to put in the work and become great performers But it s not easy with some artists it could take a while Is there a courting period before you offer an artist a deal It depends on the artist and their team Sometimes it s love at first sight Mary Lambert was like that Other times you want to make sure everyone can work together and that could take some time One of your specialties is A R Research what is that A R research involves finding and identifying opportunities that are happening in different areas of music It s important to know how people find new music and consume it It also involves data analysis regarding new artists Do you search the Internet for new artists I like YouTube I can gather a lot of information there I also check out social media but I m not swayed by numbers I look
