Cutmore Records is offering a service whereby they will give those artists who do not have any sales history at retail the opportunity to try and make it in the business. It’s a known fact that it takes more than a great record to make you a success. Building relationship and recognition at retail is very tough in this day and age and it accomplished over time. Retail is looking for the sure thing with movement history which makes it very tough for a new act trying to break in.

This is where Cutmore Records comes in. With a combined 50 + years in the business, they have the tools, knowledge and relationships in place to give you the best possible chance to break through the clutter and achieve success. They have the facilities in place to take you by the hand and show you the way. It’s about fresh, new and innovative talent. If you think you have what it takes please feel free to submit your project to the new label.

The label is excited to announce the labels first signing, 18 yr old producer/keyboard phenomenon Nicholas Cole. Having first caught to attention of the label a few years ago with the release of his self produced debut, Cole has accumulated a rather large and rabid following of believers who, as the label has, have caught a small glimpse of how great he can be. Cole is one of a number of very young artists that have come to embrace the genre and inject a new excitement and edge to a format that has been stagnant over the last few years.
