INPOP RECORDS ADOPTS NEW “OPEN” A & R POLICY
Label To Accept Music Submissions From Artists, Managers, and Industry Professionals
(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) June 25, 2010 — Inpop Records has announced a new policy for talent scouting and overseeing the artistic development of new artists. Moving forward, the label will extend an open invitation to any artist, manager, publisher, talent scout, or producer who would like to submit new music for consideration.
The initiative is intended to expand Inpop Records’ potential talent pool, affording the label exposure to a wider spectrum of music styles and artists. It will also help to build relationships with up-and-coming music producers and other future industry gatekeepers as well.
Inpop Records’ General Manager Andrew Patton explains, “The ever-changing nature of our industry necessitates a change in the way we find talent as well.  It only makes sense to link arms with all of those who are on the front end of working and developing music’s future stars. I believe it’s in the best interest of Inpop to have as wide a pool as possible when considering future artists.”
The new policy is effective immediately. Complete information on the submission process and procedure can be received via email from andrew@inpop.com.
