Record Companies

arthousemedia is a boutique recording and production facility and is not in the business of “signing artists”. If you are after a recording contract we’ve included a small selection of NZ companies here (please note, this is provided for information purposes only, and we strongly reccomend you do your own research).
The New Zealand Music Commission goes out of it’s way to help NZ artists, with free advice and resources, ranging from how to organise a tour, to legal entitlements and grants. They also have Ben Howe giving his perspective on signing to a label: http://nzmusic.org.nz/resources/video/signing-to-a-label-with-ben-howe-arch-hill-recordi/
