The right deal for you.

You can pursue a successful artist career in many different ways. At Rexius Records, we try to help artist leapfrog the next few steps in their careers. Since every artist is unique we try to adapt a project to your needs. Therefore, a project with us can be shaped in several forms.

Over the years working with many different artists we have identified some groups of artists with similar needs. We call them artist personas and we use them to create a successful project together. The artist personas can be: The Artist, The Producer, The Performer, The Songwriter, The Band, and The Influencer.

Depending on how far you have already come, there are also some different career steps: Starter, Upcoming or Established. We work with all of the above, but in different ways.

To find out your artist persona, reflect upon the questions below. 

Why do you create music?

What are your strengths and weaknesses?

How far have you already reached in your genre?

Would you rather push yourself or your music?

Do you spend more time thinking about music than your visual appearance as artist?

Are you willing to receive feedback?

How important is live performance for you?

What’s your vision with your music?

Would you rather be pushed by a project manager or take it in your own pace?

To promote an artist vs a song

During the past years, we have come to realize that it is a huge difference in promoting a ‘Song’ vs an ‘Artist’ and it has greatly impacted the way we help artists and how we do the projects we are doing together. If you think about it, these are two completely different things. They are somewhat intertwined but does more or less work as two completely different processes in two different Silos. See our reasoning below:
Song

Get a feeling, set a mood.
Context/Occasion/Genre

Such as: Setting a party mood or get a nice vibe in a hotel lounge.

Arist

You like the identity of the artist.
You like the type of songs the artist produce.

You are interested in their story.

The artist is a symbol for an identity or a mood that by following this you project your own identity.

Song

Match song to a context.

Discover Weekly.

Spotify Playlists (and other services).

Related Artists and recommendations.

Artist

Create a clear genuine identity.

Create and communicate  content/messages consistent with your identity (such as videos, text, images)

Get attention. Amplify the communications through existing platforms (such as social media, regular media, paid ads, PR stunts) that matches the audience you are trying to convince

Song

Create as good music as possible (that people in a certain context like and save).

How well a song match the existing playlist landscape.

Playlist Marketing and Network. Good Editorial Pitching.

Artist

Match content/messaging to your audience.
Great Music.

Great visuals.

Creativity, Work Ethics, Content Creation Process.

Large budget.

Song

Streams, saves, Radio Plays, Sync deals

Artist

Exposure (Awareness / Recognition / Consideration / Following)

This affects how you structure a release project depending on if your goal is to get exposure or to get people to listen to your songs. Typically, it is much cheaper to promote a ‘song’ rather than an ‘Artist’. Some artists have the goal to get a lot of exposure and some want their music to speak for itself.

For us, it’s important for you to know if you would like us to promote your songs or to promote your identity. Wondering which project is right for you? Please read this guide.
