Dating back to 1996, Rich Fayden had the chance to sign a deal with Atlantic Records, one of the most well-known American record labels at the time. This was the starting point of Fayden’s journey. After signing a new deal, Fayden started working with some music leaders like Max Martin, Rodney Jerkins, Diane Warren, and Brian Malouf.
As a consultant and executive producer, Rich Fayden has worked with many well-known artists and record labels in the music industry. Discovering music talent and connecting them to industry leaders is something that Fayden has been doing for years, and specializes in.
“If I felt they had something really special, I contacted them, then went about sending out their links and pitching them to music industry executives I felt might be interested in their music.”
What makes Fayden the right person to work with is that he is an artist and understands how difficult it is for young artists to contact record companies. However, Fayden is now an established talent scout and consultant in the industry and has discovered many, now famous singers.
“I was never looking to gain any fame for it; I just did what I could to help get these artists a fair chance to be heard.” Each year, many new talents come into the music industry and become market leaders. However, not all artists have the chance to get recognized and work with label heads. This mostly happens because they don’t know where and how to start. Having a good voice is only half of the deal, and introducing this voice to the world is the critical part. The world is full of magical voices that have never had a chance to commercialize. Consulting with a talent scout and executive producer is key to this.”
To date, Fayden continues to work, introducing young artists and their music to the industry’s top producers through his extensive relationships. What makes Fayden’s work exceptional is that he has been an artist and experienced many difficulties and challenges in his work. He knows the ups and downs of the path.
“I do this mainly because no one ever did it for me. I really want to help get excellent
music out there, to help cut through all the clutter and the competition that’s out there now for burgeoning new artists to navigate.”
