BECOMING A DAGMUSIC ARTIST
Thank you for your interest in joining our roster of talented and professional artists!
To register, please see “How to Register” below. We require you to fill out a registration form and send us some necessary files, but we do not require you to sign an exclusive contract with us. You may be required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA).
Please note that Dagmusic is a booking agency and not a talent management agency. We cannot help you book tours or record deals, exclusively represent you, or help you gain exposure.
We book one-off (sometimes regular) jobs for our freelance artists depending on our clients’ requests. If we feel that you may be a suitable candidate for a job, we will contact you with any available details and conditions, and if you are interested in being submitted we will ask you for your availability to do the job if selected.
In general there are no auditions, and clients choose who they want for the job based off of your demo and profile.
We never know what kind of job will come in next, but they usually fall amongst one of five categories with the following general conditions:
TVCM: 1 year buyout for TVCMs in Japan + all media; extension fees may apply
Games/Pachinko: buyout for a certain platform/region or complete worldwide buyout
We will provide further information about how jobs and payments will work upon completion of registration.

DON'T HAVE A DEMO?
Dagmusic recommends these caring and experienced professionals to record and mix your demos.
Auditions are very rare - you get chosen by clients based on your demo. You can make a demo up from scratch- it doesn’t have to be actual work you have done- it just needs to show what you are capable of in a studio. If you are an amazing talent but have a bad demo (and/or photo) - you will not get hired.
RESOURCES WE'VE MADE TO HELP YOU
If you have an acting and performance background but no demo, please make your own on your computer using the following scripts. If your native language is not here, please translate from the English script. Remember these scripts are only a guide, you can make your own version if you want to!
