Industry Level Music Group is a private talent development firm that seeks talented artists and actors to represent at major music labels and film companies. Industry Level is made up of ex-music/film executives and A&R’s who posses the knowledge and relationships to negotiate multi-million dollar recording and or film deals.

Almost half way through the year 2013 and Industry Level Music Group has already started to collect talented artists to shop to major labels. Extensively searching the internet,club scene and talent shows by talent scouts, new up and coming talent are brought to ILMG to be vetted out by their top A&R’s. An A&R at Industry Level must have at least 6 years experience in the recording industry and come attached with strong referrals.

The talent discovered who is ready for the big leagues immediately is shopped around and a deal brokered giving Industry Level a 20% commission fee. Talent that is not so ready may be given an invitation for a development deal or any other custom strategy to help the artist move in the right direction. Industry Level’s main goal is to bring legitimacy to the music business. “We want to show the artist how it’s really done”, says A&R Ian Martin. “Everyone thinks they can become entertainment stars by listening to the radio and watching MTV, it takes practice, hard-work, and there is a little bit of a science when it comes to breaking a new artist”.

Industry Level Music Group is continuing to search for star-studded talent and boasts a 50% success rate in shopping artists (which apparently is great in the music business). “Obtaining a record deal is one of the hardest things on Earth to accomplish,” A&R Sean Davidson argues. “We put the artist in the best possible position to win, and if a major label is not ready to play ball at the moment, the artist will be able to survive just on his/her music alone with our strategies”.

Industry Level Music Group is happy to compete for these awards and applauds the RIAA for acknowledging digital streaming success. See Below:

This Thursday the the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) confirmed that they will be converging streams into the Gold & Platinum (G&P) Program. This means that on-demand audio and/or video song streams will be considered toward the 500,000 (Gold), 1,000,000 (Platinum), and 2,000,000 plus (multi-Platinum) thresholds that are necessary for the G&P’s Digital Single Award certification.

With that being said, RIAA will be awarding 11 Gold, 18 Platinum, and 27 multi-Platinum with the new Digital Single Award. The streams that are accounted for are from services like Rhapshody, Spotify,, VEVO, Yahoo! Music, YouTube, and more.

Industry Level Music Group is seeking talent for the summer of 2013. Talent scouts will prowl social media, nightclubs and listening to satellite radio for new talent. In order to submit music to Industry Level an artist must receive a referral through a talent scout from ILMG.

“Our goal is to sign at least three to five artists this summer”, says head A&R Sean Davidson. “Artists will be strongly vetted out after receiving a referral from a talent scout. We have to ensure the quality and credibility of an artist before we risk our reputation by pitching a major.”

Agents at Industry Level Music Group are credited with promoting hip hop acts all the way from 2pac to French Montana. Agents are now using their reputations and expertise in the music industry to help up and coming artists become known worldwide.

Industry Level Music Group is partnering with credible producers to help up and coming artists achieve professional sounds. Industry Level Music Group reviews up and comings artists for a chance to be pitched in front of Major Record Companies i.e. Warner Music Group, Universal Music Group, and Sony Music Group.

Industry Level will be partnering with credible music producers like Swizz Beatz, Fatboi, Hitboy, DJ Mustard, and Dr. Dre in order to help up and coming artists achieve Industry standard music.

“Our main problems are artists who lease beats from online websites. Artists main problems are affording professional production and not having connections to obtain it. When an artist doesn’t own their master recording or their production isn’t strong enough….it can blow a pitch”, says head A&R Sean Davidson. “We are partnering with credible producers to try and help up and coming artists fix their production issues”. Industry Level hopes this partnership will fix a lot of problems and allow them to sign more acts in 2013.

Industry Level Music Group is proud to announce the opening of their “Celebrity Booking Agency”. Industry Level will be utilizing its connections with the Creative Artists Agency, William Morris Agency, AEG, and Live Nation to bring together artists and promoters. Some of the main acts that Industry Level will be promoting will be “Jay-Z, Kanye West, Rick Ross, French Montana, Nicki Minaj, Will I Am, and much more.” “We are very proud to launch this new division of our company and will strive to put together quality talent and partnerships for serious promoters”, said Industry Level spokesman Sean Davidson.
