HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION?

I’M AT WORK DURING THE DAY BUT ARE YOU ABLE TO BOOK A SESSION IN THE EVENING OR AT WEEKENDS?

We offer discount 2-hour recording slots on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, so check out our page frequently for more information and deals.

WHAT ARE YOUR STUDIO TIMES?

We are available for recording and mixing sessions every day and night as we have a team of engineers and producers that can be available whenever you’d like to book your session.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO BOOK?

Ideally a minimum of 2 weeks in advance is best as we get booked up quickly, however if an urgent session is needed we will try our best to fit you into our busy schedule!

HOW DO I MAKE A PAYMENT?

You can make a payment with cash, cheque, bank transfer or PayPal (however there is a 5% charge when paying through PayPal).

We do ask for a 50% upfront payment to secure a session slot, as this is locked just for you so no other client can use it.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY SESSION?

You can bring anything you like (within reason!). Depending on what you plan to record, you can bring your own instruments, cymbals and amps. However, our studio is equipped with a drum kit, guitars (acoustic, classical, electric, bass) and amplifiers, as well as a wide range of microphones and recording equipment. See Facilities for more details on the range of equipment we have.

HOW MUCH IS IT GOING TO COST?

At CREATIVE RECORDS, we don’t like to put a price on what we record without having a talk with you about your project and ideally listening to any material you have beforehand.  In some circumstances i.e you would like to record an album with us, we would like to have a one on one consultation/chat with you prior to making any studio bookings to get a better understanding of what you want to achieve and to make sure you’re happy!
To do this, contact us on the above telephone number/email address.

THE ARTIST

We value artists and believe now more then ever that amazing artists and their creative skills are the key to a successful future. We believe in our talent and their creativity and value what they deliver. We give all our artists the creative freedom they need to develop and can also add real value where needed with the close relationships we have established with Grammy award winning and multi-million selling writers, producers and mixers globally that we can bring in to add to your team. With our passionate team of music enthusiasts we work endlessly to make sure every single artist we sign is successful.

WHAT IS CREATIVE RECORD?

CREATIVE RECORDS is a technology driven recording studio, record label and publisher that actively invests in amazing artists to develop sustainable careers and internationally acclaimed success for its artists.

HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER LABELS / COMPANIES?

We have invested in technology and recruitment to deliver a campaign that builds fans and engagement along with streams to generate revenue from the outset. Success in 2017 is all about growing your own direct fanbase which you can then build a campaign to deliver music too. We have the knowledge, team, campaign and tools to do this and there are four core areas we combine in a campaign to deliver fan growth and income; Playlists, Influencers, Sync and Touring. We then utilise the traditional methods such as radio, TV and press to add to our results at the right time.

HOW DOES A TYPICAL CREATIVE RECORDS DEAL LOOK LIKE?

Our typical deal term is 2 years and we work on a 50/50 for records/ publishing and 70/30 in favour of the artist for live and ancillaries in the first year and then 80/20.

DO YOU ADVANCE YOUR ARTISTS?

CREATIVE RECORDS currently does not advance its artists, instead we start at a zero balance and pay every 30 days building sustainable income streams from the outset.

DO YOU ONLY WORK IN SPECIFIC GENRES?

We sign artists purely based on talent and our music team has expertise across a range of genres, so we look at music we think we can add real value to, regardless of its genre.

DO YOU ONLY SIGN ARTISTS FROM CERTAIN COUNTRIES?

We sign artists based on talent not location… Currently we have artists on three continents including; UK, USA, Canada, Netherlands, France, Sweden and Romania.  Our teams work around the clock and with our technology it is easy to both run campaigns and communicate with our artists and teams from our UK office.

CAN I SUBMIT MY MUSIC TO CREATIVE RECORDS?

Unfortunately we are currently not taking on new submissions. Our A&R team work hard utilising our technology to uncover the most anticipated talent that is breaking – so keep doing your thing and we will find you early enough!
