Can't Get A Record Deal? Get An Agent Instead! How Alive Network Is Helping New Bands Earn A Living In 2014

NEWCASTLE UNDER LYME, England, December 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today's music scene is a tough place to make your mark as a young, up-and-coming band, but practical, professional help is now on offer from the UK's biggest online music agency, Alive Network. The agency's 360 Degree representation service equips young bands and musicians with the essentials for professional success in the private and corporate entertainment world, including photo and video shoots, studio recordings, web development, social media profiles, workshops to improve live performance techniques, marketing advice and the best sales team in the business.

Budding bands only need to sign up with Alive Network (at no charge) to access professional services to help them promote their band. Demo tracks can be recorded in Alive Network's own state of the art studio, accompanied by a professionally filmed and edited video. Every band is given the opportunity of a free studio photoshoot, their own website, and can join professional workshops focussing on key issues such as marketing, promotion and dealing with clients on the night.

The income a band can earn with the agency can in turn financially support the band's original music and career goals, through income earned playing paid gigs in front of a live audience that build both a band's experience and confidence.

Alive Network's Artist Development Manager Rich Hearn see the new 360 Degree representation package as a natural 'win-win' for both agency and band.

"At Alive Network, we want to ensure that every band on our books are providing the best possible experience for our clients. In turn, we want to promote them in the best possible way so everyone can discover these artists' talents quickly and easily online.

"By offering artists and bands a complete package, we help them develop their skills, their artistry and their experience. Many of our most popular function and wedding bands have exclusive representation deals with Alive Network, and perform between 60-90 private events per year, earning anywhere between £70k - £140k per year. Not bad for what is essentially part time work, doing what they love most!"

Supporting young artists is nothing new for Alive Network; the business was originally set up in 1999 to fill an artist development gap caused by diminishing development deals and album sales. As the agency supported bands in achieving their aims, it became clear that these bands could earn good money performing for private functions, and hence not need a second part-time job outside the industry to fund their music ambitions.
