R Cat Records is an independent record label based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The label was established in October 2005 and released its first album in January 2006. In August 2008, R Cat Records secured its first major motion picture license for Ridley Scott’s ‘Body of Lies’ starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe.
R Cat specializes in the production, licensing, and distribution of instrumental recordings and welcomes demo submissions from musicians and composers who love music and who want that music to be heard around the world.
We have a formidable catalogue of artists who we’re extremely proud to work with. Get in touch with us if you’d like to join them or if you have a demo of mood provoking music that you would like us to hear.
What does a Record Company do?
A record company spends most of it’s time trying to convince people. It takes care of the business side of music. A good independent record company works hard on an artist’s behalf. It concentrates most of it’s time and energy on things like secure and effective investment, motion picture licensing, digital distribution, rights management, marketing, and media relations. Then there’s all the legal stuff in between.
Then, while composers and producers are busy perfecting their moments in music, the record label concentrates on presenting those moments to the world.
