Brand This Artist By USL Magazine

artist branding, brand this artist, uslmag.com, usl magazine

Each month we receive a number of request by indie artists, DJ’s and emerging producers wanting the cover. And while we are very flattered, the cover is usually reserved for artists and musicians who already have a significant built-in fan-base and notoriety.

So to honor the demand, we’ve created the Brand This Artist Campaign that allows indie artists participation in group cover shoots for a special edition. The shoot includes wardrobe, hair, make-up and styling. Participants will receive a write-up in the print and digital special edition as well as a feature online at uslmag.coma video interview, selection for a live performance, the digital and print magazine, photos from the photo-shoot and a weekly social media blast.

Qualification: To submit for this campaign, you must be a Music Affiliate Member and have at least one fully recorded, mixed and mastered song.

“This is a great opportunity for Indie Artist, DJ’s and emerging producers who are looking to increase their visibility, gain a editorial feature and build their brand professionally.” -Patrick Kelly, Editor-In-Chief of USL Magazine

More details on Brand This Artist and Commitment Process.

brand-this-artistBrand This Artist offers several benefits to those artists who care to take part in the process. Most artists, while having talent, do not have the proper packaging or representation to best represent them. Thus, many times they go over-looked, which result in not being discovered, lacking opportunities for magazine and TV interviews, not being considered for collaboration with other artists and not getting the chance to present themselves to music industry professionals.

Any Indie Artist within the continental United States can participate in this campaign. The shoots* will be scheduled in groups with artists being matched-up for certain fashion spreads.

The Brand This Artist Campaign offer participants a well-rounded media package that includes:

  • Receive a professional photo shoot including wardrobe, a stylist, hair and make-up.
  • Receive photos to be used in their media kits (EPK’s), websites, blogs or social media.
  • Become a cover model for an upcoming issue.
  • Be included in a full 6-10 page fashion spread in print and digital magazine.
  • Record video interview that will stream on the youtube channel, at uslmag.com…
  • Receive a write-up in the print and digital edition
  • Receive weekly social media blast for the issue you are featured in.
  • Some artists will be selected to perform live at a USL Magazine Issue Release Party or event.
  • Receive marketing and promotions for the issue you are featured in.
  • Receive food service during the scheduled photo-shoot.

    This campaign is not a sponsorship.; it is a project indie artist and musicians can participate in. And you must have a professionally finished single before you can commit. To learn more, simply send us an email at info@uslmag.com or click the “info” link on this page.
