The Internet offers musicians of all styles and abilities immediate
and personal access to a truly global market. But as the dot-com
industry matures and comes under increasingly more critical scrutiny,
it becomes clear that in some businesses...particularly the music
business...a web site on its own just isn't enough. In most cases,
musicians want to play live. Even those who only record or do studio
productions still need to reach their desired audience...where ever
they may be. And to do that, your audience has to know you exist,
what you're up to, what you've got to offer and how they can get it.
Billy's Entertainment World is a non-profit website that continues
to develop its on-line strategy and presence, and it also continues to
apply the years of expertise at hand in developing more traditional
and “real-world” marketing and management services for a varied
range of musicians and other creative clients.
Billy's Entertainment World™ can provide its managed clients and artists
with a full range of professional marketing, PR, media relations and
advertising services designed to work in conjunction with the artists’
own creative ambitions and the expanding global potential of the
Internet itself. Merging traditional media and marketing with the
on-line abilty to track and target niche markets and individual
interests, Billy's Entertainment World is the only non-profit dot-com
music promotion service.
As is evident from the plethora of on-line music sites claiming to offer
new and unsigned bands a genuine shot at the big-time, there are
a lot of extremely talented singers, song-writers, musicians
and bands out there. But even with talent and musical ability, a singer,
song-writer, musican or band will not easily move beyond a given
rung on the industry ladder unless that talent and music
has a truly original and unique edge to it. Many talented artists can
and do make a good living performing covers or even original material
that sounds like any number of already successful singers or groups.
And, through our Billy's Studio our Unsigned Area , we endeavour to
encourage and promote their efforts. However, to be picked out for
Billy's Entertainment World's potential non-profit promotion and
management, singers, song-writers and musicians must display
exceptional originality and a UNIQUE talent that sets them apart from
or above the often technical competency displayed by the rest of the
professional and semi-professional pack. To be part of Billy's
Entertainment World's Potential development, you must be a singer,
song-writer, musician or band that DOES NOT immediately remind
your audience of another well-known artist. We do not want mimics.
We will not promise everyone the world and will only actively promote
and manage groups and artists that can professionally deliver an
original sound that is unique, creative and has a touch of magic.
If we feel that your talent fits the bill, we will offer management and
promotional work with you to develop your career to the most
appropriate level possible.
We have access to all the latest tip sheets and insider news in Los
Angeles, New York and Nashville. We also have all the contact info on
all the major label A & R reps. We keep it updated as the music business
is always changing. We submit to Los Angeles, New York and Nashville
publishing companies, record labels and producers as well as other
managers and affiliates, overseas.
If you want to expand your audience and gigs to include larger
festivals, major venues or more extended foreign tours, we will
work to help you achieve this. If you wish to pursue a deal with a
major record label, we will put all of our resources and expertise
behind you to ensure that you have the best possible opportunity to
achieve your goal.
