NEW YORK, NY – Last week, Music Industry Icon, Andre Harrell, launched a global talent search, accepting auditions via Blazetrak.  Blazetrak is a web platform that provides direct video access to the world’s top professionals. The search will result in a record deal (single) through Harrell Records and/or a production/publishing deal through Harrell Music.

 From now through November 30, 2011, artists and aspiring producer/songwriters are invited to submit their best original music and/or performance of a cover (via audio or video) to Mr. Harrell through the Blazetrak platform.  Mr. Harrell will personally review each and every submission during the month of December (2011), and all entrants are guaranteed a video response directly from Mr. Harrell, including his expert critique of the submission (submission fee: 9 Blazetrak credits).

 

Ultimately, on January 10th, 2012, Mr. Harrell will announce the selected recipient of the record deal or production/publishing deal via a live Ustream event.

 

Andre Harrell is the creator of Uptown Records, former President of Motown Records, and responsible for architecting the careers of several music superstars including Jodeci, Mary J Blige, and Sean “Diddy” Combs. He is currently running his own label distributed through Atlantic and hosts his own radio show on NYC 98.7 WKRS FM. 

 

Of the talent search, Andre Harrell says “I just started a new record company and I’m looking to fill up my roster.  Blazetrak.com is a paid service where people can upload their music and I will make a personal video response telling them why I like it and what they can do to make it better.  It’s a new way to do A&R.  People don’t have to fly to New York, stay in a hotel and sit and have a meeting with me, or try to get a meeting with me if they don’t know me.  They can be from France, Africa, London, Nebraska or LA and just take four minutes to upload their music.  They can send me two or three demos and I’ll listen to them and give them a video response right back.  It’s really giving me the ability to have 20 or 30 meetings a day and discover new talent.”
