We listen to all demos that are submitted to us, but please respect that we might take time to respond, due to many artists sending demos to us. However, you will always get a response for free.
Your demo doesn’t need to be perfect yet. We are listening to your potential, not the studio quality. If you have a work in progress and are really talented, then we will help you shape the edges. Although, well produced music does matter. Please do not send a recording from your mobile phone. (Yes, that actually happens…)
C.B.E. can take your music to the next level, therefore we are looking for attitude, talent, and driven people. We love when people know why they are creating their music. Hence, please also write a few lines why you are doing this and why you would like to be part of the C.B.E. family. Yes, our artists are our family, once you are with us we are in this together. But please don’t write an essay, a huge mass of text won’t cheer up our A&Rs. Rather they will skip it if it is too long. Just write short and concisely.
You can only submit your music to our A&R team via a streaming service like Soundcloud / Youtube / Spotify etc. Music submissions are not accepted. There’s really no reason to since today’s technology provides all types of media outlets. Please submit your top 1 song only, we will only listen to one song.
When you submit your demo, we would like to have the right to share your music on our Social Media pages. Simply to share your music. We won’t do this every time, only if we like your music. Please follow our facebook page to stay updated.
