Re: When to send to labels

find labels that match your style of music, more of less. Go to their website, if there's "we do not accept demos", move on, maybe you will catch with them later. Depends on a label, but most prefer full EP/LP demos, some might offer a help with mastering/album art but after they dig your demo submission. Be casual, don't go too formal, let music speak for itself. Before submitting your demo, check label's latest releases and compare your own stuff with them and try to decide if your music would fit in their catalog and if it's in a same level composition and production wise. Use dropbox/soundcloud for your full demo so they could preview stuff from it without need of downloading.
