ARTIST DEVELOPMENT

InRage Entertainment is a multi-genre, multi-ethnic family of artists. 

 

InRage Entertainment prepares artists with exceptional talent for a career in the music industry. We team up with each artist and guide the artist in shaping their own career. We help our artists grow into recording artists, live performers and songwriters. Our artists get to feel like independent artists, running their own show, but still have the moral support and professional guidance of the InRage family.

 

At the end of the InRage development process, artists release an EP of their original songs compatible with commercial radio and an HD quality music video. Each artist is ready to perform live with a fully crafted live set. You can apply HERE or click the link below to learn more.

Frequently asked questions

What does the program entail?


The InRage artist development program ranges from 6 months to 2 years. You'd work with us directly 1x to 2x's weekly to develop your vocals, artistic style, songwriting, historical and current music perspective, recording ability and live performance skills. You would also have assignments to complete and research to do. It's kinda like going to school part time. We also eat A LOT of snacks and thai food and talk about what's streaming on #Netflix, unless there's another pandemic and we're still working via Zoom, which we do quite well. There can still be snacks, but you'll have to get your own.




How much does it cost?


It depends on what you want to do. We have several options. Most of our artists work with us on a full EP and music video. Some artists just do one song with us. We need to hear you first before we can make a recommendation. But, yes, there is a cost. If you don't believe in yourself enough to invest in yourself, who will?




How do I apply?

What genres do you work with?


We sign artists in ALL genres. Like, ALL. We're not kidding.




What ages do you work with?


We work with artists of ALL ages. From children to seniors. We don't care how old you are. What we care about is if you have a dream and talent. We want to know that you believe in yourself and that you're ready to put in work. We also care that you're get-along-with-able. Don't be a butt hole. I mean, you can be a butt hole if you want, but you better be really, really, really good. Even then, we might pass. But, back on topic...there's no age restriction.




Do you work with people outside of Los Angeles?


Yes, we do. We currently have artists in California, Oregon, Florida, and North Carolina. We've worked with artists in Chicago, Denmark, Malta and South Korea. Thanks to technology, we can work with artists anywhere. We're open to working with artists in all parts of the world.




How can I contact you?


You can e-mail us: social@inrage.com, but if you're interested in becoming an InRage artist-in-development, you should fill out the application HERE.




What is the Artist Development program?


We are the team behind artists who want to move forward in their music careers but don’t know how to or don’t want to do it on their own. We’re different from a major label in that we don’t tell an artist who they should be. We let them bloom naturally. We’re part school and part record label. (Think Motown meets Berkley College of Music.) We help our artists grow into recording artists, live performers and songwriters. Our artists get to feel like independent artists, running their own show, but still have the moral support and professional guidance of a team. Primarily the husband and wife team that owns the company— The Vanderveers. Bruce “Automatic” Vanderveer is a Grammy-nominated, Billboard-topping, #Sony music producer who started his career as an artist signed to Morgan Creek then became a producer working with Michael Jackson's MJJ Records having developed female R&B group, Brownstone and hip hop duo Quo. He was also an apprentice under songwriting and production team Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and had a production deal with their label, Perspective Records/A&M. Automatic has worked with artists such as Pink, Pussycat Dolls, Nicole Scherzinger, Christina Aguilera, Cher, James Brown and Raven Simone. He has produced songs for Interscope, Polygram, RCA, A&M Records, Prospective, Morgan Creek, Fox Searchlight, American Airlines and the WB Television Network. Ebony has worked with The Dream, Cristina Milian, Floetry and Aaron Neville and is currently signed to Sony Hong Kong. As a magna cum laude alumna of USC’s Thornton School of Music, she has presented her research on gospel music at Yale University. The pair have written Billboard-topping songs for K-pop artists #XIA and #Twice. They appear regularly at KCON.
