CAREER ACTIVITIES DESCRIPTIONS
Talent Development: This includes image development, vocal training, live and video performance coaching, choreography, and mindset and confidence building.
Pre-production: This is the process of learning the skills of writing and pre-producing. First we‘ll discuss ideas to lay down a creative foundation. Then, we will focus on writing structure, what writing elements work best for you, including lyrics, vocal annunciation, vocal performance and hiring session players.
Writing: We will write several songs with some to be chosen for your record. If we agree, and the opportunity arises, we will take outside songs from major artists, and or writers.
Bookings: Our goal is to solidify booking opportunities for you to build a live gig portfolio. Once your record is finished, we will begin the booking process.
Product Placement: Once shows have been booked, we will reach out to companies for product placement. Industry Product Managers want to be part of high viewing opportunities and look for artists to enhance their image. This goes hand in hand with booking.
High Risk Management: Although MIND will be the head of representation, we will build this brand as a team. All e-mails, letters, performance contracts, meetings, conference calls, will be shared as a team.
Business Consultation: Daily there will be questions that arise, problems that need to be fixed, and ideas that need to be nurtured. We will advise you through every phase of the development process so informed decisions can be made.
Our Business Consultations include:
- Financial Management (Money Management, Budgeting)
- Sourcing Service Providers
- Contracts/legal Advice
- Paying to have music played
- Getting Deposits for Venues
- Grant Applications
Publishing/Placements: Part of becoming a writer is building a catalog. Once a song writing catalog is properly produced it can be shopped to TV, Movies, and other placements. Finding the right publisher and publishing deal is very difficult. MIND will help serve your music to the proper outlets, increasing chances of acquiring a publishing deal, and or placement opportunities.
Publicity: We will try and get you exposure in as many physical and digital publications as we can. The focus is to build up stories and social proof for your electronic press kit, which would also include your artist bio, resume and photos, for future shopping.
Securing Investment: Once your entire Artist product is properly put together, we will begin shopping. The objective is to raise capital from outside investors and use their financial resources to help move forward with an outside partner, a major label or the label‘s subsidiary.
Photography: You’ll partake in one full photo shoot with one of our professional photographers, that will include preparation help, makeup, and two different looks. Images will be used for your Album and other Marketing, including social media, inclusion in Exclaim Magazine, and other CD promotion activities. The necessary outfits, including shoes and jewelry, will be the responsibility of the client.
Marketing & Promotion: In order to seek out your fan base, investors, and others who will promote your music, MIND will help with branding, social media, video placement, interviews, event and airplay promotion, etc.
