Unsigned Artists perform for record labels and get the chance to meet with the executives. Artists are educated on documentation needed to copyright and register their material for radio play.

Record Label executives from Warner Music Group/Atlantic Records, Universal/Motown Records, Virgin Records and WP Records, are participating in BreakThru Orlando a music showcase for unsigned artists to perform for record labels.

Breaking into the music industry has always been an uphill battle with more focus being on industry contacts rather than talent alone. WP Records brings industry insiders and independent artists together on October 14th and 15th, 2005 at The Haven, 6700 Aloma Avenue from noon to midnight.

Registered artists will also be competing for a DEMO package* with WP Records. One band or artist selected by a panel of judges and fan ballots will receive 50 hours of Studio Time at WP Studios, 500 CD Covers and 500 Music Submissions.

Central Florida has been known for talented pop groups, but record labels involved are hoping that Orlando has outgrown its pop roots. "We are looking to showcase the many talented artists in Central Florida that just need the chance to be seen by the right people", says WP Records (A&R Director) J.P. Charriez.
