For singers, songwriters, and bands interested in audio recording, we provide top-notch production services and record at world class studios. If you’re a songwriter wanting a high-quality recording of your song, we can help take it to the next level so that you can pitch it around town with confidence. From pre-production (key selection, charting, arrangement, instrumentation) and scheduling the studio/engineer(s) and musicians, all the way to the vocals and final mix, you can count on Divided Sky Entertainment & McNay Music Group to give your song the attention it deserves.
For solo artists and bands needing original material to record, we’ll use our industry connections with established songwriters and publishing companies to gather an assortment of songs, tailored just for you. Included in our production services is always individualized consultation and guidance regarding song selection; we want to make sure the songs you decide to record (whether you already have them or we help you find them), are the absolute best representations of you as an artist. There are literally thousands of singer-songwriters and artists here in Music City, so your project needs to stand out, plain and simple. We have access to some of the best studio musicians in Nashville and will make your songs come to life. No, we don’t use the same players on every session like some producers do, but rather we give your project laser beam focus to ensure that you are thrilled with not just the end result, a “radio-ready” and highly impressive product, but also the entire “studio experience.”
We at Divided Sky Entertainment & McNay Music Group pride ourselves on customer service and client satisfaction… we’d welcome the opportunity to produce your next project! Give us a call today at (615) 712-7777 to see if our tailored services may be beneficial in helping move your career forward.
Our World Class video production team shoots professional video products for our clients based on the individual artist’s requests and needs. Production services range from “themed” style videos consistent with those aired on Zuss Country, TNN, CMT, GAC & VH1/MTV, to our very popular and extremely effective, “Performance Video EPK.” Artists and bands utilize the latter style of video solely for the purpose of securing more gigs and increasing their visibility amongst talent buyers and booking agents. The quality level and design of the video garners instant recognition for the artist and showcases them in the best possible light, often setting them apart from the rest of the pack.
Below are samples of “Performance Video EPK’s,” designed to increase opportunities for artists and bands to work as entertainers in the music business.
Need some help with the talent buying process? Not getting the level of entertainment you think your venue (and budget) deserves? Want someone to go to bat for you and your venue, negotiate on your behalf, and get a fair price?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, then we encourage you to reach out and let our professional talent buying services be of assistance to you. With a combined 35 years in the entertainment industry, Divided Sky Entertainment & McNay Music Group are ready and willing to work FOR and WITH you. From helping you decide on the right entertainment for your budget, to handling all of the negotiation and contractual paperwork, we utilize our industry insight and expertise to seek out available artist dates (i.e. “avails”) for you to choose from. Often times we’ll focus our efforts on specific routed dates in order for you to get the best bang for your buck. With so many bookings contracted year in and year out, we routinely work will all of the agencies in town and have a strong gauge as to what pricing their artists will actually play for. That’s how we are consistently able to secure entertainment for a cheaper price than our clients could trying to do it on their own. So whether you’re a club or casino featuring nightly entertainment, a festival wanting to secure a lineup of two or three day’s worth of artists, or a corporate event demanding top-notch talent just once-a-year, we can help. No budget is too small or too large, and at Divided Sky Entertainment & McNay Music Group, we pride ourselves on routinely securing artists within, often times well under, your budget.
As we’ve stated before, we are all about client satisfaction and repeat business. We strive to make both our clients (venues, fairs/festivals, private/corporate events) happy, as well as the artists themselves and their representatives. For instance, if we secure talent for you at a good price, then that allows you the opportunity to have a successful event. In turn, if the artists are treated well and thoroughly enjoy the experience of performing at your engagement, then everybody wins. Plain and simple. Artists must be compensated fairly, and venues must be given a legitimate shot at having a successful show. Our unique vision strives to bridge the gap between the monetary needs of touring artists, and the performance fees that venues can actually afford in order to keep their doors open. We are of the philosophy that repeat business and return dates are in everybody’s best interest.
In addition to the many corporate and variety bands we’ve provided to our clients, we’ve also worked with and secured an abundance of national-level entertainment, including: Brantley Gilbert, Gloriana, Shooter Jennings, Uncle Kracker, Ted Nugent, The Bellamy Brothers, Eli Young Band, Colt Ford, Corey Smith, Craig Campbell, Josh Gracin, Steel Magnolia, Darryl Worley, Chris Knight, Roger Creager, Little Texas, Bucky Covington, Katie Armiger, Building 429, The Lacs, Big Smo, Bubba Sparxxx, and many more!
With a proven track record for success, and access to some of the greatest entertainers in the world, let Divided Sky Entertainment & McNay Music Group assist you with your next event. While we can’t guarantee a “sell-out” crowd, we can promise you that we will do everything in our power to land you the right act at a price you are content with. And if you’re already satisfied with the level of talent you’re getting, then maybe you’d like a small, personalized Nashville boutique agency to handle the talent buying process for you. Some of our clients just want to be freed from the daily grind and exorbitant amount of effort that goes into securing national-level entertainment. If that’s you, give us call today at (615) 712-7777 and see if we can help! Divided Sky Entertainment & McNay Music Group look forward to working with YOU!
In addition to talent-buying, we also provide direct booking services for a very select number of artists and bands. The type of acts we are interested in working with are those that display the utmost professionalism and who will consistently “deliver” an engaging and memorable performance wherever we send them. Our goal is for our acts to hit it out of the park, and for us to negotiate a return date.
As small and specialized boutique agencies, we pride ourselves on our reputation, our relationships, and repeat business. If we are going to “pitch” an artist or band, then they not only need to be outstanding at what they do, but they also need to have the proper promotional material in place to visually and aurally portray to the buyer why they should be hired. Club owners, talent buyers, band committees, and promoters are constantly bombarded with booking requests and submissions, thus in order for us (the booking agent) to have the absolute best chance of securing a date for you (the artist), then we must have top-shelf promotional material to “sell” you. Otherwise, it’s not worth our time, or the time of the person we’re trying to sell you to.
The booking relationships we’ve developed have taken months and years to cultivate; therefore we are very selective as to the artists and bands we choose to align ourselves with. Fairs, festivals, clubs, casinos, colleges, performing arts centers, and private/corporate events routinely rely on our ability to provide professional and superior entertainment. Thus, when we secure a date for an artist or band we’re working with, we expect three things from them… 1) To deliver a first-class, professional performance for our client 2) To get asked back, and 3) To be an ambassador for Divided Sky Entertainment and McNay Music Group.
If you are an artist or band (or representative of one) that distinctly exhibits the characteristics we’ve described above, then please feel free to contact us for further consideration regarding our booking services.
We at McNay Music Group and Divided Sky Entertainment approach the “Artist Management” service with the idea that artist management is an awesome responsibility that requires and demands our full commitment to advancing our client’s career. Personal, financial, and professional career counseling, as well as guidance and supervision in all aspects of our client’s endeavors as they relate to their music career, is what we offer. We reserve this service for artists that possess poise and show tremendous promise with the potential to have a sustained and substantial career in the entertainment industry.
