Introduction: We are a one-stop shop. We record, mix, and master your music.
Music production is available, and we take your picture and manufacture your CDs. We build you a website for national distribution, with publishing available. We copywrite your music and register all your songs with the BMI music industry.
I'm glad I have this time to make Smith Brothers Records available to you.You may have been referred to me by one of my many sources as being interested in songwriting or becoming a recording artist. Well, we can get your foot in the door. No doubt you'd like a hit record; who wouldn't? But who can predict a hit? I can't, and nobody else can either.
One thing I know is that a song will never become a hit if it's stuffed in a desk drawer or your hip pocket. It has to be recorded and heard by the music industry and the public. First, you have to have someone put all the elements together. Professional musicians, arrangers, vocalists, studios, etc. -- that's where I come in.
I am a record producer/studio engineer. I put your song together with professionals who can make something happen, a recording that the public can hear and appreciate. That's why I started Smith Brothers Records LLC. I got tired of putting in all my sweat and labor into someone else's company, and I got tired of the ridiculous recording rates from those other high-priced studios that mostly watch the clock more than care about you as an artist and your sound. It's your money, so "your music should sound good"!
I have an experience in the entertainment business, and I prefer the entertainment business because it's a lot of fun creating and singing original music. It's more fun to me to put out a recording than to spot check an assembly line.
Some years ago, I was a keyboardist for a well-known professional female group, who, to this day, is well on their way to a broad level of success. They kept plugging away and got the exposure they needed. Ask yourself: are you plugging away or just sitting around, dreaming of success? If you want to do something constructive, let's get together and review your song materials; maybe we can open the doors to your future.
There's no cost for me to review your ideas. If it's just the words, it's okay. We have arrangers who can compose the music for your songs. Fresh ideas are what we need in the business; it can be rock & roll, gospel, country, rap, etc. or whatever. Just let me know, and we'll take it from there.
But for many artists, releasing an album is like the finish line in a race. They've always wanted to make a record. They did it. It's done. They give some for free to friends and family, and glow in the compliments. They might do a record release concert and make a website, but in terms of effort spent, they're done. (Sometimes from satisfaction, but sometimes from entitlement: "Now that my brilliant album is done the world will recognize my genius!")But the important thing is it's up to you which kind of approach you want to take.
Is your album a starting line or a finish line?
Smith Brothers also assists in getting your demo to A&R people of major recording companies, and "this is how you get a record deal". Exposure is the name of the game; remember, your songs have to heard by someone else besides yourself, so let's set up your sessions right away and get recording.
Don't have music? Don't worry. Smith Brothers has a multi-talented staff who can get the job done. If you can do the lyrics, we can do the music or both. Call me soon.
