Get yourself a manager to deal with legal aspects of contracts and organising shows then send out as many high quality demos as you can to labels, festivals & venues. The best way to get noticed though is to perform live very regularly and at a wide range of venues.

You will want to create a recording of your performance. This can be original songs you've written or covers of other peoples songs. Use the internet and look up contact inforation for record companies. You'll need to send your information and copies of your demos to these companies. This can take a lot of effort and patience.

Well if you are confident that you can sell alot of records, then you must be pretty talented. First thing you need to do is play as many live shows as you can, which will help get you exposure and a fanbase. Next make a professional recording and a press package and send to prospective record labels A&R Representatives.

Utilise social media and networking websites. Perform live as often as possible to gain as much exposure and recognition as you can. Communicate or collaborate with like-minded artists. Send press releases and demos to labels, promoters, radio stations and influential individuals in the music business.

If you already have a stellar demo, you can start sending it to the "right" people. Myspace/Facebook & other social media sites have become a perfect place, not to mention cheap place to advertise your music reaching people that you wouldn't normally have access to.

You will have to make some demo tapes and get them out to the record companies. It helps to have an "in" at the company b/c they get so many demos they don't listen to most.
