All Great Classics ... All New Groove.

THE COVER KINGS are an Innovative New approach to Pop Music. A Refreshing Surprise for the 21st Century Audience. Featuring Unique Arrangements of Pop and Rock Classics. Emulating what the Jazz Masters have done for Decades.

Combining an All Star Cast of Live Musicians and Singers with the Newest Sampling and Computer Technology, we have Revamped your favorite Classics with a combination Layered Vocals, Modern Grooves and Style. The Emphasis being Personality, Feeling and Chemistry. The first 10 part collection will feature all of the above and acoustic and cutting edge electronic techniques and sounds.

The Results are Amazing! The most impressive Aspect of the Cover Kings is the New Sound. So, sit back and Enjoy Great Singers and Musicians who love Great Songs and Treat them as such.

THIS New Prototype RECORD LABEL (Cover Cat Records) will combine the World’s FAVORITE POP SONGS, Gifted Musicians and Singers (All Unknown Talent), Cutting Edge Loops, and New Sound Manipulation Technology (Acid 3.0, 5.1 Surround Sound and Cakewalk Sonar for Example)

The Whole CD Collection will be in the form of a Series much like “The Ultra Lounge” Series in the 1990’s.

Our Catalog will be comprised of the COOLEST SONGS OF EACH ERA. (Depending upon Record Company Greed Factor) Not all will be Radio Hits. Which Statistically don’t have nearly as much emotional effect on People as Favorite album Cuts! The JAZZ Market has run this way for 50 Years and still thrives!

POWERFUL Renditions and Repolished GEMS are the GOALS. To Produce 15 Song Masterpieces with all UNKNOWN Talent. (Names will Appear on Each Album…)This Music is to Help Promote - Small or Large Business and New Artists. Non of it is On the Airwaves. (Therefore the Audience isn’t Radio Satur-jaded.)

Song Choices will be determined by the INTERNET and Billboard Hit Album Sales for the Past 50 Years.And of Course, Harry FOX along with The Publisher/Artist. These factors will determine our CHOICES of MATERIAL.

MUSICAL VALUE

Our Unique Approach (OUR VERSIONS) will Guarantee the VALUE of our Tracks.

Our GOAL IS to HALF The Cost to the Small Business of A YEARS Rotation and Improve Customer Relations. Our Cost per Record SOLD. The ONLY Payment we have to come up with. Statutory / Mechanical Rates = 15 Tracks X 8 cents =$1.40 Cents per Copy SOLD.

We are not interested in all Radio Hits, Which Statistically don’t have nearly as much emotional effect on People as Favorite Album Cuts! Chosen by INTERNET Free Music POLLS…The In - Store Rotation / Play BROADCAST Penalty  Is bypassed by Selling / PROMOTING A 3RD party. (Our Company AND these AMAZING Covers) Secret Selling Tool.  / In Store demonstration = Copies Sold. Bypass Mechanical Rates.
