be polite, release stuff on your own, develop an independent following, do a few things that will make yourself stand out, bring a solid square deal to their table, maybe even tip it in their favor as incentive.

Advice on sending out a demo? Include a cover letter, a bio (one sheet), a photo, the demo with contact info. Send to labels you think will actually sign you. If you have press clippings xerox them and send them too. Someone said you should showcase yourself more when writing them. Specifically I took it as including quotes from past press. You want the label to know people are interested in you. Labels are a business, so money is first. They want to know that if they sign you, there'll be an audience already started to buy your product.
