I don't think uploading my music on garageband.com and just waiting to be discovered is the best way to get a record contract. And I'm sure there's more ways other than "knowing the right people" especially with the invention of the internet. Anyone know how to get a label's attention and listen to your music?

Set fire to the label managers car, then hand the tape to him.

personally...


just play shows, and if you're really good, you'll start to play bigger shows with bigger bands, and then you'll be playing at a big show hosted by 4 or 5 record companies, and if they like you, they'll sign you.
