Collective Evolution, a division of AirPlay Direct, LLC, has been retained to conduct a global search for a new, cutting-edge Americana / Alt. Country act.

Our client is a well-funded, start-up label which is based out of Texas. This is the second signing for the label. The first act signed is a Southern Rock band. The label is now looking for a strong, professional, focused Americana / Alt. Country act. We are looking for an act that meets all of the below requirements:

  1. Genre – Americana / Alt. Country

  2. Music – You can be a singer / songwriter, or a band.  You must write all of your  own songs.  They are open to “some” outside material, but really want the act to be musically focused on their own, original material.

  3. Image –  A very real and “rootsy” look & vibe.  No over the top “glitz and glamour”.

  4. Age – 21+ years of age.  No minors.

  5. Current contracts – Must NOT be currently signed with a record label.

  6. Commitment  – Must be able to travel & tour at least 150 days a year.

  7. Location – You can be located anywhere globally, as long as you can meet the travel & tour requirement of 150+ days a year.

If you meet “ALL” of the above requirements, you can submit an introductory e-mail to . Please put XLR 321 in your e-mail subject line. You must meet “ALL” of the above requirements; NO EXCEPTIONS. Please submit web links only. Do not send any attachments of any sort; songs, photos, etc. If you submit with any attachments, your e-mail will be deleted and you will not be given a second opportunity to submit. Please do not submit more than once. We will contact you if we are interested.
