Each month we receive a number of request through social media; by indie artists wanting to be placed on the cover of USL Magazine. And while we are very flattered that they deem us worthy of admiration, we reserved the cover for personalities who already have a significant built-in fan-base and notoriety.
However, for 2013, we are beginning a new campaign titled Brand This Artist, which will allow selected indie artist participation in a cover shoot for each issue of 2013. Beginning January 15th, 2013, USL Magazine will shoot 12 Indie Artists who would like to be featured on our double cover issues. Along with a scheduled photo-shoot, including wardrobe, hair, make-up and styling. These artists will also receive a write-up in the print and digital issues as well as a feature online at uslmag.com with a written and video interview (behind the scene), perform in a live performance show promoted by USL Magazine and it’s sponsors, receive copies of the digital and print magazine, photos from the photo-shoot and a daily social media blast.
Qualification: Each artist who submit to be a part of this campaign must have at least one fully recorded, mixed and mastered song that is edited for the radio.
What You Get: Branding in an ad campaign, photography, wardrobe, hair, make-up, styling, videography, video editing, copy editing, web editing, graphic design and layout.
How To Get Started: You may get additional information on how you can be involved in the cover shoots here: info.
