Probably the hardest thing about the music business, apart maybe from the "difficult second album syndrome," is to get yourself noticed in the first place. Especially if you are looking to be signed up by one of the major labels. But the perception, of course, is that those record companies are run by a bunch of fat cats who rarely come out of their offices. That's a bit harsh, I guess, but Chartburst is a way for the unsigned artist to connect with some of the biggest labels in the world. This music application lets you upload your music and, if you can muster enough support for your song and get it into the top 5 it gets forwarded to the talent scouts at some of the biggest labels.
There is currently no formalised way for unsigned musicians to connect with the record labels that they dream to be signed up by. Chartburst is an innovative new system for connecting talented unsigned musicians with some of the worlds best know record labels like Sony Music, Atlantic Records, Warner Bros. Records etc. Musicians upload their track to one of ten genre-specific charts that range from Hiphop to House. They then promote their submission to friends and fans. If the track makes it into the top 5 it will be forwarded to the A&R talent scouts at some of the biggest labels. Artists will also receive constructive feedback from that label! The other side of the coin is that Chartburst is a great place to discover amazing new music from unsigned artists. Music fans can create a free profile, vote for their favourite track and save playlists of their favourite cutting edge new music to share with their friends.
"Future hits at your fingertips" is one of Chartburst's bylines and it's as catchy as hell, isn't it? Chartburst connects unsigned musicians with some of the biggest record labels in the world via user-voted, genre-specific charts and tice a month the top 5 submissions are reviewed by record label talent scouts and feedback returned. There are several other websites that provide a conduit for unsigned bands to get noticed but they are generally smaller, independent companies rather than the big wigs that Chartburst offer so its not an app to sniff at. If you are a budding unsigned musician it would be silly not to have a look at Chartburst.
