We would love to aid in booking our artists for shows, tours, or events throughout the world, however if the band has a booking agent, we can only forward your information. If the band has a booking agent (please see below for relevant contact), then it’s only one pilot in the cockpit — it’s just the rule of the game. Booking Agent = Not Our Bag
For bands that don’t have booking agents on our roster, please send all booking inquiries to: TheBird@CantoraRecords.com and we’ll be more than happy to assist in any way we can.

Francis and the Lights:
1. We love new music. We are constantly looking for new artists to work with in any capacity. Send us new music!
2. Send us your PHYSICAL DEMO or DIGITAL LINK to MP3s (no direct MP3s). All Demos come in and get a special place in our office where they can sleep comfy at night and when we are sick of listening to all of the club bangers and Bruce Springsteen/Tom Petty greatest hits (which is quite often) we often power through a few demo submissions. Please DO NOT send us your MP3’S directly (send us a link to your MP3s) — they clog up our email and when that happens we will blacklist you and use your MP3’s as filler on ex-girlfriend mixtapes between various versions of “Free Bird”. They usually get the point, thanks to you MP3-sender-guy.
3. We don’t mean to be mean, but please do not email or call us about your demo. If you’ve sent it, we’ve received it and have faith that we love music just as much as you do and we’ll listen to it. If we dig what we hear we’ll get in touch with you. We keep track of everything that comes in so keep us on your radar.
4. A lot of the time we listen to demos for supporting acts on our bands’ tours, or for Cantora parties, showcases, and events — we always include non-Cantora artists that we think are really phenomenal. If you think your band would be great to tour with a specific artist — let us know so we can get it into their hands. We really dig that sort of thing and it gets everyone excited. New = Exciting
5. At Cantora we like EVERYTHING, don’t be afraid to send us a demo if you’re a hip hop artists or opera singer. We don’t have a niche or a genre in particular that we focus on— we like good music, and if it makes your body move we’ll be further inclined.
6. DO NOT ADD OUR EMAILS TO YOUR SPAM/PRESS/MAILING LIST. THAT WILL ALSO MAKE US HATE YOU FOREVER AND NEVER LISTEN TO YOUR MUSIC.
7. All said and done, please send any and all demos as described above and we’ll gladly listen to it with honest ears. If you're still reading this you're awesome.
