Hello from New York,


I hope you had a good holiday break.

In 2010, the music industry began adopting new technologies like we’ve never seen before. That has resulted in more opportunities open to everyone (not just material submitted via trusted contacts), better ways for the industry to filter through large quantities of music to find the gems, and lowered risk on investments in the commercialization of music.

Music Xray has led the way, and in 2010 became what is probably the largest online community of Music Industry Professionals in the world – all eager to use the most advanced tools ever assembled to conduct A&R and to open the doors of opportunity to musicians everywhere.

We have big plans for 2011 and we hope to play a key role in helping you get the deals and exposure that you need to get your music and your career to the next level.

Below is a featured list of some of the more than 1000 opportunities open on Music Xray.

On behalf of the entire Music Xray team, we wish you a successful 2011.

What is Music Xray Doing for Musicians?

Music Xray for ArtistsSince officially launching in January of this year, Music Xray has helped artists get their music licensed on CBS, get signed to record deals, production deals and more. Be sure to check the success stories section of the site for a few of the deals we hear about.

Music Xray does not pre-screen your music. You submit directly to the professionals listed on the site. You are guaranteed that they listen and you receive confirmation when they do. Music Xray does not take a cut of your deals. Your deals are yours.

Occasionally, we create opportunities for you in partnership with labels and other entities.

Just this week we’re announcing seventeen artists and their songs have been selected for the major label-backed Music Xray Compilation – Great Tracks by Independent Acts. All artists will receive royalties from sales. It will be released across the UK in late January 2011 and three songs will be aggressively promoted to radio.

A few of the artists selected include Brave Chandeliers, Ben Novak, Simon Fagan, The Loomers, 9Giants, Val Broeksmit/Andrew Jackeri and more! The next volume is already in the process of being created so submit your music here.
