Become a vocalist
Can you sing, write songs and/or produce (your own) vocals?
Or can you do one of the above and have you surrounded yourself with a solid team? If so, then keep reading because Vocalkitchen might be exactly what you are looking for.
What Vocalkitchen IS NOT:
We don’t serve you food or beverages.
…a music school/academy.
We do not provide you with vocal teaching,
songwriting or music production classes.
We do not release your music.
…a management company.
We do not manage your career.
…a traditional music publisher.
We do not only pitch your songs but also your vocal.
Congrats, you made it this far!
So the obvious question then is:
if we’re none of the above…
what exactly are we
and why should you care?
Our mission is to help you make a living doing what you love to do most: make music. Not just by ‘hoping’ for a hit or ‘waiting to be discovered’, but by coaching you on your musical journey. We give you creative feedback on a song-by-song basis to improve your songwriting, vocal performance and vocal production skills and help you build your brand by placing your songs- including your vocal -with modern-day pop artists: DJs.
As a Vocalist for Vocalkitchen, you can, in fact you should, be 100% yourself. You do not have to change your artist identity, adapt your songwriting style or vocal performance to work with us. We are extremely proud to be able to represent talent that is rooted in a wide variety of genres, from Soul to Indie-Pop, from Americana to Gothic Rock, from Reggae to Rap and we would love to hear what makes you stand out.

Let’s take a quick look at the alternative options. You are by now probably well aware of the fact that it can be quite a challenge to make a living as a performing artist or a songwriter. Here are some of the traditional routes that you can take:
(1) Release on your own label
To pull this off you would need a decent budget for studio recording time, studio musicians, record producer, mixing engineer, mastering engineer, photoshoot, video shoot…did we miss something? Ah, yes of course, marketing and promotion. This is most likely going to cost you a fortune and it is hard to make noise.
(2) Release on a smaller independent label
If you are lucky to get signed to an indie label, chances are you have to work with a limited budget. The label will obviously want to recoup every penny they invested in the release. In other words, you will probably still not be making enough cash to pay your rent.
(3) Release on major label
Big budgets, a big platform, a dedicated team to help you promote your song, this probably sounds like a dream come true. However on a major label competition is fierce so your release may not always get the attention it deserves.
(4) Live shows
How many performing artists do you know that make enough dough off of their live show so they have to work no mo’? Usually, it takes either a hit song to convince credible venues that your show pulls in a big audience, or it takes years of hard-work to build a fanbase yourself.
Maybe it’s time for something different?
Vocalkitchen is dedicated to helping you get paid with every placement so you can focus on that what you do best: Making More Music! :)
