Recording demos is a crucial element of any musician’s career – budding or otherwise. Usually, demos are rough recordings of songs sent by musicians and singers to record labels to try and land a deal, and musicians, singers, and songwriters to find an agent or manager. You have one chance to make a first impression with your songs and, given the competition out there, the quality of recording is critical. Based on registrations with songwriting organisations and songwriting courses and classes, it's estimated that 30,000 new songwriters emerge in the US alone every year. Whether you're a musician, singer, or a songwiter, if you want to get your songs heard and noticed, you need a polished demo.
