Demo submissions should be directed to Universal Music Group’s record labels, but kindly note that they are unable to accept unsolicited material. Typically, demos are recommended to one of our labels’ A&R departments by a manager, agent, producer, radio DJ or other industry professional. Another option for unsigned artists is UMG’s site, Spinnup, which offers both digital distribution and has a network of scouts who have a relationship with many of Universal Music’s labels.
Please note that on occasion, we’ve been made aware of individuals who give the false impression they are affiliated with UMG and ask for money from artists in order to submit music on their behalf. It is against our company policy for an employee to accept any form of compensation in return for submitting music to one of our companies. If you are approached by a person that claims to be a UMG employee and who asks for any form of compensation in relation to a demo submission, please contact us here.
