Today's music industry is an exciting place for musicians. Old barriers have vanished thanks to new technology, and the playing field that was once one-sided is now more level than ever before. Of course, while change solves problems, it can also create new ones, and that certainly holds true for today's music industry.
The Booyah Music Group was established in 2010 with the view of developing and nurturing artists. It’s no secret that musicians and artists today are choosing an independent approach to the music industry. However, taking on such a task involves wearing an awful lot of hats. Our aim is to provide artists with high-quality creative, mentoring and promotional services. This includes songwriting, music production, marketing, performance analysis and project management. We encourage artists to learn as much of the creative process as possible in order to empower them in their decisions around their own music.
Working in music is more than just a nine to five job, it requires a lot of commitment, often for not a lot of compensation or recognition. It doesn't help that there is so much misinformation out there about how to get into the music industry and what to do once you're there. Please go over our following services and let us know if you have any questions.
At The Booyah Music Group we’re all about creating exciting new music. Working alongside our team of writers and producers we can help you turn your lyrics and melody into a single complete with full production. Writing and production sessions with our team allow singer-songwriters an opportunity to develop their skills whilst bringing other influences into their tracks.
For singers who are not as confident at writing, our production team is able to write and produce bespoke tracks that fit your genre and fanbase. You provide a full brief and we’ll work to deliver a track ready for you to come into the studio and record your vocals on. For international artists we are able to work in a similar way, you can record your vocals in a local studio and send the stems to our team for editing and placing into your final track.
Our mentoring service takes all the hassle out of signing with a manager by providing ad-hoc support when needed to help you move forward in the music industry. Unlike a management contract, our mentoring service ensures that you keep 100% of all revenue earned (gigging, single sales, merchandise) whilst still benefiting from the years of industry experience, extensive contacts and creative vision of our mentoring team.
90 minute mentoring sessions can be booked as and when required, with no long term commitment meaning that an artist can sign with a management company or record label without any current ties. This unique approach provides artists with the opportunity to progress their career at a speed which is appropriate to their situation.
Usually 90 minute sessions includes:
Music mastering is usually the term used when referring to preparing your audio mix for commercial release. This is typically the final step in the studio after completing your final mixdown. It’s all about adding the final touches so having a good mix to begin with is vital here. Music mastering takes your good-sounding mix and then transforms it into a professionally finished master.
The first goal of this process is to correct any existing balance problems within the mix and enhance any specific characteristics desired for your signature sound. This includes adding EQ, compression and any limiting needed.
The second thing to consider with mastering is achieving consistency across all tracks. This is so that your whole release has a uniform sound and the same volume level between all tracks. This isn’t just about applying the same presets to all tracks but requires understanding the differences and adjusting the nuances within each individual track. The end result is a consistent and finished product. Please note for regular mastering, the lowest requirements for tracks are 16bit and 44.1kHz.
