Scouting For Girls
First featured: April 3rd 2007
Result: signed to RCA, showcase gig organised by RotD, publishing deal.
Sarah Pearson from Wasted Youth told us about a band who were just about to sign with Epic and shared some bedroom demos with us. 'Elvis Ain't Dead' was the first track we featured in April 2007. Not only did we keep up our support as Epic's campaign got underway the following year, but we also hosted a showcase gig for them which saw many publishers turn out. A deal with EMI Publishing followed soon after. One of the most successful UK pop signings this decade, their first album was the 10th biggest-selling album of 2008 and the track we first featured in demo form was one of their four Top Ten hits to date. It's good then that the MD of their record label is such a fan of ours:
âRotD is a great informative tool for anybody who is serious about music. They bring new music and the latest industry based stories to my desk every morning. Their weekly magazine is one of the best digital publications I read full stop.â - Nick Raphael, MD, Epic Records.
