Artist and Repertoire Workers
If you've ever been in a band, and you've tried to get some local, paying gigs, then you're familiar with how difficult it can be to get your music heard. You'll likely meet with even more frustration if you try to market your band nationally in an effort to get a record contract. A&R workers have firsthand knowledge of the number of artists hoping to sign with a record label—thousands of submissions cross their desks every year.
