LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2006
KASHIF, legendary producer, songwriter, artist, author and CEO of Brooklyn Boy Entertainment announced today the official launch of his revolutionary music business software MUSIC BUSINESS 411. Famous for having written and produced some of the most memorable songs of the eighties and nineties for such notables as Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Kenny G, George Benson, and many others, Kashif has produced what might possibly be his sweetest song yet by launching MUSIC BUSINESS 411.
Developed and released in a Beta version in November, 2005 by the six-time Grammy nominated trailblazer, the software allows users to search, locate, and connect with over 35,000 top music industry executives.
MUSIC BUSINESS 411 is a simple to use, affordable software designed to assist aspiring musicians to break into the music industry by providing instant access to a database containing thousands of A&R executives, managers, agents, producers, record companies, publishing companies, radio stations and more.
HOW IT WORKS: You have just finished recording a demo and want to send it to record companies for review. MUSIC BUSINESS 411 allows you to search for record companies, or individuals by any specific genre -- R&B, Hip Hop, Rock, etc. Once a search is completed, almost instantly, a list appears! Now you can click on any name and gain access to music industry telephone numbers, addresses, e-mails, fax numbers, staff information and a whole lot more. The software includes an auto-letter-writing feature to write to hundreds of record companies or thousands of radio stations at one time and you can mail your music to managers and agents directly from the software.
Kashif, having grown up in eight foster homes and never knowing any real family says he's used to exploring uncharted territory. "I spent most of my childhood moving from home to home and had to be inventive in order to survive, so I'm more apt to think outside the box and willing to take bigger chances than most of my peers. Even with my music, I am more comfortable blazing trails than following the pack. My experience in foster care taught me that nothing is promised and that life is uncertain, therefore I had to learn to trust others and seek mentorship in many areas of my life and trust in my own instincts."
Kashif's success in music inspired him to write the enormously successful book "Everything You'd Better Know About The Record Industry." This book, which sold over 300,000 copies to date, is considered by many to be the music industry bible. Mentor and business associate Bill Shack says, "Kashif is a bit of a genre hopper, he is just as comfortable writing books and developing software as he is to writing and producing music."
Whether you are a novice music maker or an established music organization, your biggest challenge in realizing more success is connecting with people and organizations that will share your dreams and are willing to support your goals. MUSIC BUSINESS 411 solves that problem.
CNN says, "It appears to put all the tools for success in music right at your fingertips." Cynthia Johnson of Warner Brothers Records calls it "The best way to break into the music business, period!"
