How to Submit Your Music on Sony Music or Universal Music Record Labels?

Universal Music and Sony Music don’t have an official website and app for submissions at present. They have always selected music based on their A&R team who keep a close eye on artists and platforms all over the world and then select the artists that are performing well.

If you want to be a major label artist you should focus your efforts on building your own fan base to start and getting your music into the world’s largest stores and streaming services via a platform like RouteNote.

WMG – Warner Music Group Starts Selling Shares on the NASDAQ Today

Warner Music Group is going live on the NASDAQ today. Warner are offering 77 million class A shares at $25 a share. If Warner opens up at $25 per share that means they will have a $12.8 billion valuation.

It’s going to be very interesting to see if investors have an appetite for music companies again.

Underwriters for the new offering include Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse, and Goldman Sachs. Ticker symbol will be WMG.

Warner Music Group has an amazing catalogue, but I’m very keen to learn more about their recent investments and what other industries they think they can enter, because doing the old record label model just isn’t going to gain enough growth over the next 20 years.
