I need sheet music/lyrics to one of your artist's songs. Can WBR send them to me?

Warner Bros. Records generally does not control the rights to lyrics or sheet music. Those rights are controlled by the music publishers. Please contact the artist's publishing company for sheet music and lyrics.

Yo WBR! I want a record deal pronto. Where do I send a demo?

It is currently the policy of WBR not to accept unsolicited tapes or songs. Time limitations and legal considerations require we return your tape unopened if you mail it unsolicited. If you are interested in having your tape heard by WBR, we suggest you establish a relationship with a manager, publisher, or attorney that has an ongoing relationship with our company. You can get lists of managers by ordering back issues of Music Connection or Hits magazines. You can get in touch with publishers by contacting The National Academy of Songwriters at (213) 463-7178 or contacting your nearest ASCAP or BMI office. If you are seeking an agent we suggest you contact your local musicians union. We're sorry but we can't take tapes or song submissions from the public at this time.

How can I get review copies of WBR music and/or artist contacts for my magazine/media outlet?

You should contact our Publicity Department. Please send a copy of your publication along with circulation information and a cover letter to the following address:
