Corrections to dated directions of submissions to Universal Music Group / Capital Records:

On my last day in L.A, I figured I walk by as many places I could that I didn’t get a chance to, days after attending the 2017 ASCAP #ICreateMusic Expo.  Following the hollywood stars to the Capital Records building, I was stopped and questioned by a staff member right outside its door.  The guy went by the name of, I think ‘~Jon-Paul?’. Regardless, cool dude, we had a good short, yet deep conversation about the industry and the current problems it faced. 

Before the conversation got deeper, and before I explained my intentions and goals, he had initially handed me a sheet that include directions for applying for jobs and submitting a demo.  It was as if, people frequently come to Capital Records and try to get in, so they have a staff member posted outside to monitor the entry, ready to hand out these unprofessional printouts to the daily stragglers.  Mid conversation, I could tell he thought in his mind he had wasted a print-out on me.   

Below are the original directions on the sheet of paper: Outdated, incorrect data. See updated directions at the bottom of this article.

After settling in back home, days later, going through follow-ups from people we networked with at the event, including reconnecting with many talented independent artists, many of which are currently featured in this platform, I figured for shits n’ giggles, lets go to those links I was giving on that sheet from Jon-Paul outside of the Capital Records.  After doing so, I realizing that the site had been edited much after these instructions were printed, and its instructions didn’t make sense. 

If I was handed this, I’m sure others were too, and maybe are still being handed this. So for clarity, I figured I just write an article with updated directions.  Therefore if you run into this issue, and type it in google or another search engine like I did at first, hopefully this article will pop up and help you out.  Your welcome, then again, it really wasn’t that complicated.
