We're setting a goal to further develop the careers of 1,000 rookie artists across the US!
Music Headquarters was founded with the idea of helping inexperienced and undeveloped artists; those who are just starting out, rookies essentially or maybe those who have been around for a while and can't quite figure it out. In our experience, we find that it's not the music that musicians have a problem with, it's the business behind it. Our ultimate goal is to ensure the artists' business affairs are being tended to and that they're taking a professional approach to their career.
For every $100 donated these artists will receive:
-Lifetime, one on one, management services to guide the artists
-Merchandising services including a new logo to generate income
-Marketing services including a $50 Youtube ad campaign to develop their fanbase
-Access to our network of booking agents, promoters, venues, graphic designers, photographers, videographers, studios, engineers, producers and songwriters.
$10,000 Goal - 10 artists will receive free studio time to record a single
$25,000 Goal - 25 artists will receive free studio time to record a single
$50,000 Goal - 50 artists will receive free studio time to record a single
$75,000 Goal - 75 artists will receive free studio time to record a single
$100,000 Goal - 100 artists will receive free studio time to record a single

What should I expect from management?
Your manager will assist you with your business plans, goals, branding and overall development of your careers. They will be your go to person for anything you need and will oversee you execution of the business plan.
How does merchandising work?
All you need to do is submit your graphic design. We make a mock-up of the item, put it on your website, print the merch and ship to fans. You keep 100% of the profit.
How does marketing work?
Depending on your budget this will range anywhere from grassroots, organic development to full ad campaigns, interviews, playlist & radio placements and press releases.
Can you get me paid shows?
Yes, we will put you in touch with our booking agents, venues and promoters. All shows through our network are paid, no pay to play.
Can you get me a record label / investor?
While our management will advise you on how to build your business independently, there's nothing wrong with looking for an investor. We can shop you around and assist you in signing the right deal.
Does MHQ receive a percentage of rights and royalties? Is this a 360 deal?
No 360 deals. Artist keeps 100% of royalties. When you're working with another agency or label they're typically going to take a percentage of your music, merchandise and performance royalties.
How long is the contract?
No contracts, if you don't like how we handle your career you can cancel at any time.
Is there creative control over my music?
No artistic direction. No creative control. We don't tell you how to write your music. While we do conduct music reviews, you'll always have final say on your songs and the final product that is released. We're here to give you feedback and be your filter but never to control you and your music.
Who are some artists you have you helped?
We've recently got Von-T (https://www.instagram.com/kovu1278/) and Lords of Gotham (https://www.instagram.com/lords_of_gotham/) signed to an independent record label but we're aiming to help artists more like our 15 year old rapper LNFJC(https://www.instagram.com/lnfjc/) .
