booking shows

As a growing independent it becomes very difficult for many musicians to branch out demographically beyond their own state or town of origin. At Music Without Labels & Beat-Play we’ve developed everlasting relationships with numerous venues and consulting firms all willing to help the cause.

We are more than pleased to introduce a new side to Music Without Labels & Beat-Play, and start booking shows for anyone interested in expanding their name and coming to one of our select cities. It will be our pleasure to get you set-up and provide everything in our power to ensure the best accommodations for a kickass event. Please email Music Without Labels for more information. info@musicwithoutlabels.com

Our goal at Music Without Labels & Beat-Play, LLC is to build lasting relationships with the independent music community so in order to fulfill this we find it necessary to provide these services to these musicians as a common courtesy to their hard work and dedication to the fans. [AKA – you don’t gotta pay shit!]

It is also good to note that our staff is limited at the moment with new additions every year to help build promotional potential. With that being said it is difficult for us to respond to all requests that come in, so please work with us and don’t take it personally if your album has not been reviewed or we are unable to attend a show. Thank you

  1. Good points, I think I will definitely subscribe! I’ll go and read some more! What do you see the future of this being?

  2. Thank you, I’m glad you see the potential in this. I see the future of this being ONE music social platform that all artists use to supply their fans with their music, most likely for free while they get paid from unobtrusive ads. Once one music platform is established the possibilities for collaboration and integration of all of the awesome tools that are out there is made incredibly easier and can benefit the users way more than the current set up. Third party apps can be integrated with the beatplay social network to expand the capabilities of the site and the users.

    Also artists can track ALL of their plays, views, shares, ect, if they give their music away in exchange for ad revenues, because the downloads on the site will be much safer than say a torrent, putting an end to crashing computers and lawsuits. It will also spread the music posted ridiculously fast as long as it is good, which could give way to some of the most talented unknown performers of our generation.

    Bands will eventually be able to perform and sell tickets to live streaming concerts, and have updates sent directly to fan’s profiles. Band members could also practice with each other across the world if this social network system for music is created. Basically, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t have one, and a million and one reasons why we should..so I see the future of this thing spreading ridiculously throughout many facets of our lives. We will implement some SecondLife like features in the future, and hope to eventually have mobile hardware as well as mobil apps that work with Beat-Play.

    Then of course we hope to do the same thing with TV and Movies that we did with music, which was to free it, in almost every sense of the term.

  3. hello, i am sending you the link to my bands myspace so you can hear it! i hope you enjoy it!

    • Thanks I’ll check it out. How did you find us? I’d love if you signed up on MusicWithoutLabels so we can let you know when Beat-Play is ready for beta testing. It’s a great way for artists to promote themselves and maintain control over their careers. Thanks again for the link.

  6. hi,
    I’ve tried to sign up today, but unfortunately it didn’t work…. hope it will be ready sooooon. all the best, karola

  7. yes I did. filled out the form (not for myself, for an artist I’m working with) and I didn’t see, where I could manage my site or actually it hasn’t change anything. the site looked like before. and: i didn’t get an email about my registration….

    • Do me a favor and check and see at the bottom of MWL if the artist appeared in that list. It’s alphabetical. I’m sorry for the confusion. Right now our main website, Beat-Play, which is where artists will upload their music and have a profile, and can do all sorts of other awesome stuff, is still being developed. We are in internal beta stages. Public beta will go live (hopefully) by May. MusicWithoutLabels is just a landing page for artists to show support, and for us to show support for the independent artists, also we gather their information so we can let them know when Beat-Play is ready for beta testing. So there are no profiles on MWL, and there is no activation email, but you will be notified as soon as our real site is made available. I, again, am very sorry for the confusion, and for the wait. We are working harder than ever to bring these innovative new tools to independent artists all over the world. I believe you have already read about us on this blog, but if you have any other questions, please, don’t hesitate to ask! Thank you very much for your support!

  8. thx…. then I’ll wait 🙂

  27. Hi there 🙂

    My name is Sahara Starr and I am about to release my first mu album.

    It’s a culmination of years of personal effort and I have spent my life’s savings to produce it myself. If you’re interested, please check out a sample at http://Sahara.ws < one of my tracks plays there automatically so please turn up your speakers (it may take a moment to start playing).

    I am looking for partners to help me promote my album. I am willing to donate a portion of the revenues to a charity of your choice and/or give the funds directly back to you in the form of commissions.

    Additionally, I'd be willing to consider doing some free photo modeling or video spokesperson work for your company, if you have that need for any products or services related to your website. I would do this in exchange for your support, such as announcing my album on your site using the animation you see at the address above or a banner I could make to your specifications. Also, if you are amenable to it, perhaps we could somehow include an announcement in any email correspondence you have with your user/member base – however it would be done, we could discuss a revenue split on any reasonable basis. 🙂

    Finally, when you go to my site, you will see a really cool CD animation. I have the ability to create this custom animation for any artist and if you\'d like to resell that service and earn more commissions, we can discuss that as well. As you will see, the CD booklet for my album is 16 pages, but I can create an animation like that one for 4, 8, 12, 16, or 20 pages, all custom made for any artist, producer or record label.

    Thanks for reading this and feel free to contact me any time at Sahara@Starr.ws

    Warmest regards,
    Sahara Starr
