Hi there and welcome to the Count Zero Records A&R onboarding process.
We are happy that you are here and will get you started on your way for us to get to know you, and for you to get to know us.
Let us introduce ourselves first.
Count Zero Records is an international leading independent, fully vertically integrated Music and Film Company that works in the major fields of Studio, Publishing and Label Business – fully digital and online as well as classical face-to-face.
We are 100% privately owned and funded, and not connected with any other label, major or otherwise, and therefore not beholden to outside economic interest. Our management consists of professionals with over 25 years each of international top-level leadership experience, and we work with a wide range of internationally recognized professional partners.
With over 300.000 Listeners, 300 distribution partners, 200+ licensed songs, 30 artists and 5 chart hits, Count Zero Records is already among the largest independent labels in the home markets of Croatia and Austria. As a European record label, we work internationally (With the biggest market being the USA), but pride ourselves on offering distribution and marketing for the Asian and African growth regions as well.
Count Zero Records is an independent record label that helps artists fulfill their vision by providing international sales & distribution, marketing, legal advice, contracting, facilities, management, sync, publishing, training and much more to its artists.
Our Studio, Studio Zero is a modern Digital / Analog Studio in which our Chart Hits were created. Working with internationally successful Songwriters, Producers and Musicians, we are more than just a Studio.
Count Zero Records Publishing represents our works internationally. As a Publisher, we monetize works for TV- Film- and Music Productions and give our artists access to Sync licensing, Cover, Remix and sub-licensing
At Count Zero Records we all – Owner, Managers, Staff, and Artists – work on a purely percentage-based system and do not charge any fees to our artists. Instead, every artist receives a percentage of all net proceeds of every song they worked on – for example as singer, rapper, producer or songwriter.
This allows artists with no team to professionally produce and release music and content.
Our external and partner producers, legal experts, marketing specialists, etc. also work only on a percentage basis, with no up-front fees, and actually, no fees at all.
That is because they believe in the artists they are working with.
In a sense, we are like angel investors, only that we invest our time, money and effort for the benefit of artists in the context of a record label.
Whats next ?
Please note: Please follow all steps of the onboarding process or we will not be able to process your application.
First, we would like to ask you to upload your 3 best songs and have a look at our video series „Music Business 101“, where we answer a lot of artists’ most frequently asked questions.
We work with artists worldwide, and fast and easy online administration is a big part of our success. We offer all of our artists online, immediate and secure e-contracting and e-administration.
So we have created an artist registration for you that (if successfully completed and your identity has been verified) will allow you to conduct all of your business with us electronically from that point on.
