career in terms of increasing exposure to a mainstream audience, but it can also increase revenue through upfront
money, license fees, and performance royaltes. We want to create opportunities in this field for unsigned artists, and this is this is why we have created "Screen Shot.” We are very excited to introduce this new component of Unsigned Only."
